Short Month name placeholder


I’d like to file documents under folders name 01-Jan, 02-Feb

Have not found a placeholder for the short name of a month. I can only do 01-January, 02 February…

Is it possible to use the short name of a month. And how?

You could do that with a script. I’m not sure it is possible with a smart rule, if there’s no corresponding placeholder for a three letter month abbreviation.

OTOH: Why repeat the month number (01, 02 etc) by appending the month name?

I use the leading number to keep them in order!

will explore the script idea


I see – but the name is still only repeating the information that the numbert conveys, anyway. I’m a fan of DRY.

That’s ok. I’d rather have the redundant information
