There may not be a way to do this, but I thought I’d check anyway:
I have set my Mac to send screenshots to my DevonThink inbox. I have a database that contains a “journal structure”, with nested groups for year/month/day. I want to place these screenshots within the “right day”.
Is there a way (via Smart Rules or otherwise) to do this?
P.S. I tried Smart Rules first, but the “move” action only works with a fixed group as destination.
You can use the
File action in a smart rule (as opposed to
Move) and then right click to insert placeholder and choose
Creation Date to create an appropriate format.
Edit: you may need initially to
Move the file (in the smart rule) to the relevant parent group before using
File to file it under the appropriate day.
Wow, today I learned, thanks!
Yes, “File” is so much more versatile than “Move”!
Nobody should complain that the folks behind DEVONthink are not proactive: see yesterday’s blog post on How to Use Filing and Moving.
The File action is incredibly powerful, and as I hope I conveyed, can be used in very sophisticated ways!
