I am trying to utilise the new scan name and scan amount, item scanning rule actions.
Previously I am using Custom Data fields that I have to manually enter but I am hoping that these new actions would automate this from a rule.
One use case for me is I scan all my receipts into Devonthink from a iOS App, Hazel tags these files and moves them to Devonthink Inbox where I have set up rules to file to specific groups based on tag.
The file name I have chosen is Date_Item_amount ( 3-3-2020_COFFEE_2.62 )
Whilst I have the information in the file name I would prefer it separated out when I create a metadata overview
Please see screen shot
Which shows one example of the rule, I have tried, also the custom data fields that I am hoping to automate into ITEM and COST, both of which are single line text custom data fields
I do not use currency symbol in file name but I did try this
Also I added a price Custom data field at a previous attempt to see if Currency custom data was required
Change cost to field shows the placeholder for document amount.
At the moment I am just trying to get the Scan Name / Document Amount.
But hopefully will be able to scan both Item and amount in same rule
The Rule moves and files the file but does not change the cost custom data field
I have already looked in help too see if I am missing something
I am assuming I am getting the syntax of the scan name amount field wrong, or totally off the mark of what I can do ? Do I need to learn/Use regular expressions to parse from this file name?
Hope all is clear,Any ideas ?
And thanks in advance for any help
