long time no ask! Anyway, I've been tasked with a project that involves sorting folders into new folders based on type. I've been working on an Automator action, but I haven't had much success. What I'd like to have the folder structure look like is:

Main Folder

           -Movie 
               -Project name
          -Photo
               -Project name
          -Document
                -Project name
          -Audio
               -Project name

I can sort my folder into the audio/photo/movie/document folders, but I cannot make new subfolders and move my items into them, I simply lack the knowledge. Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks!

EDIT: here is what I have so far: https://mega.co.nz/#!HQN1GK6C!WvBvDOAt_5116hAoIAIhXTWIfg9fNKjxZxIgG-AHWRk

  • you tagged applescript, but want to use automator. It can be done with both. share what you've done so far so there isn't wasted time on anyones behalf – soulshined Feb 13 '15 at 20:54
  • @soulshined I tagged it as both, not knowing what would be better to use. I'll upload the workflow. – Keaton Burleson Feb 13 '15 at 20:56
  • upload it as a workflow not as an app – soulshined Feb 13 '15 at 21:07
  • @soulshined in Yosemite, (for me) it saves workflows as apps, you should be able to open it in Workflow (drag the app on the Automator icon) – Keaton Burleson Feb 13 '15 at 21:09
  • you can elect to save it as a workflow when you save it. – soulshined Feb 13 '15 at 21:11
