Watched folder Tag & Sort


#1

Hello,

I am new to Maestro and I am looking for some help on have a watched folder notify me when something is download so I can add a tag and the item is then sorted to the correct folder. For example I may download a jpg or png and sometimes it is a logo and other times it is a technical drawing. I want to be able to tag these so they go to the appropriate folder.

Many Thanks
