a beginner needs a little help, please.
I’d like to have tons of imported PDF documents (from other ecm-applications producing horrible file names) - in one group - renamed by custom metadata fields I added to database.
As I understand there are two options of files in devonthink databases, the ones that are indexed only and the ones that are imported. As a newbie getting used to I’m using imported files in the beginning, to setup my ecm environment and synchronize one database via icloud.
Coming from enterprise ecm applications, metadata fields are absolutely relevant - I’m happy being able to setup custom metadata-fields within devonthink.
Filenames are normally less relevant for me as they “interfere” only within devonthink desktop application, but in the To-Go-app they disrupt my workflow (as I do see filenames in document list) so I need them being renamed for better usage. If possible:
Filename/name of pdf should be sth. like
if that is possible - I must admit it might be possible that sometimes metadata fields are not filled correctly.
I found out there might be a batch rename action when I select more than one document, but I do have trouble setting up metadata-fields into UI (I wonder if that is really possible or just UI misunderstanding by myself). I also found some of your scripts, but nothing that matches my needs or can be adapted to my needs as I’m absolutely no genius in programming or scripting.
So can you help out please?
