This is a workflow puzzle.
For years I have used David Spark’s dating system for my PDF and other files. Unlike David, I used the sequence YYYYMMDD without dashes. It has served me well and I am indebted to him for making my files orderly for many years since his Paperless ebook (now updated to online tutorials - utterly brilliant).
One of the consequences of Covid-19 on my job is providing e-bundles of documents with tabs and linked indices rather than paper bundles. I have adopted software so that I can put in my PDFs, arrange them around to comply and the software generates an index for each bundle as well as the documents in proper order. The problem is that YYYYMMDD does not look good - even with dashes. I have had to adopt DD-MM-YY to comply with how these bundles have to be presented and to avoid manually dating each document.
Does anyone know how to batch rename files to convert the string YYYYMMDD to DD-MM-YY? I have Keyboard Maestro 9.1 and I have A Better Finder Rename 11. I am able to use AppleScript on a ‘cut and paste with minimal edits’ basis!
Thanks for your help!
