How To: Sort files into folders using Automator on Mac OS X

Sort files into folders using Automator on Mac OS X

With OS X, you can use Automator to automate several functions. This nifty little how-to by macmost shows you how to sort files into sub-folders using Automator. You can use Automator to alter what happens when a file is added to a folder. In this example, new files added to a folder are then sorted into subfolders according to their type. You can add multiple actions to a folder and then determine which order they are used.

I´m trying to do something similar to this, but instead of doing 3 differents folder actions, I want to do it in only one. Can you give some tips about it?

My idea is to sort my TV shows automatically without doing an folder action for each show ;)

Best regards
