I have started a workflow for finder to do the following:


get selected finder items

filter the items


this is the problem you can only enter one item at a time !!!


could anyone offer advice on how to make automator find and label multiple files within a folder and what format should i use for separating the file names requested.

    Hey Tina,


    You should explain more in detail as to what you want to accomplish.


    There are automator actions that allow you to filter finder items one at a time, so as the Dispense Items Incrementally. There is also a Finder action that allows you to Get Folder Contents. Then there is a Finder Action that allows you to loop.


    I can help you, if you can explain in more detail what you are trying to accomplish.
