10.4: Prevent accidental overwriting of web receipts files
Authored by: jantonc on Feb 12, '07 08:23:39AM

Almost there - if you save 2 receipts on the same day they will overwrite.
In the "first" Rename Finder Items put the date *before* the filename.
Add a second Rename Finder and put the "Seconds from 12M" *after* the filename.

Now you will have DATE-title-SECONDS so you can save many receipts without overwriting, even if they are on the same day, with the same title.

10.4: Prevent accidental overwriting of web receipts files

I reworked the workflow from Tiger since the Leopard script is Phyhon!

The first Finder Rename adds HH-MM-SS
The second adds date YY-MM-DD

And then saved it to ~/library/pdf services/ (add the folder if missing) or to the folder library/pdf services/ for all users.

The automator script looks like this:[link:]http://tinyurl.com/2g5evn
