Naming with Metadata

Hello,

I have been looking around on how to use the batch rename tool in portfolio 10 and I want to have it auto add the date into the name of the file. How can I do that?

thanks.

The Batch Rename has no date insertion macros. Batch Rename is also called manually. So, on either count, date auto-insertion seems a non-starter (in either client type - they both use the same method). Your options are:

  • Seeding the date upstream in another app or OS script.

  • Using NetMediaMAX scripting (needs NMM).

  • Using the API (needs Portfolio Server Enterprise)

  • Running a VB/AppleScript script on the client (for Desktop client only, and these APIs are now deprecated in favour of those above).

Ah, was hoping for a simpler solution. Thank you
