I'm new to Automator, but I've had a Mac for quite some time, and I'm not a total noob. :)
Here is my problem: Users need to make a backup (to desktop) of a folder located on a network drive. The folder name on the network drive is the same as the user's short username.
This is no problem if the user selects the folder themselves; I´ve made a workflow that does this. But I need this script to automatically find the folder on the network drive, based on the username and copy it to the desktop.
Any ideas how to find that folder and pass it on as my inputfolder variable? I assume I need to use a bash shell or applescript command in my workflow?
