Watched Folder Tag & Sort


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

Hi @kodama,

Welcome to Keyboard Maestro! Here's one example of how this could be done:

###Key KM Actions and Tokens Used

•Prompt for User Input:


•Set File Attribute:

•Move or Rename File:


What if two or more files are moved to the watched folder more or less simultaneously? How does the macro process both files?
