How to rename and move your files

Yes, with DropIt you can also rename and move your files with a single process.
You only need to correctly configure an association with “Rename” action.

Example 1

This is an example of association that adds the image Date Taken at the beginning of my photos and moves them in a defined destination:

Name: Move and Rename my Photos
Rules: *.jpg
Action: Rename
Destination: C:\Example\Of\Destination\%DateTaken% %FileName%.%FileExt%

For more info about abbreviations (the special words between % percentage symbols) you can read:
How to customize destinations

Example 2

In this second example the names of my documents are capitalized and separated in folders by their Date Modified:

Name: Capitalize and Sort my Docs
Rules: *.doc;*.docx
Action: Rename
Destination: C:\MyDocs\%DateModified%\%FileName#+++%.%FileExt%

For more info about abbreviation modifiers (in this case the #+++ string) you can read:
How to customize abbreviations

IMPORTANT: currently it is not possible to move renamed files in a destination if it does not already exist; it will be fixed with next DropIt version 7.0, in the meanwhile associations like this could not properly work.
