View Full Version : Automator Save Mail Attachment

Jul 22, 2013, 07:54 AM
I'm looking for some advice for automating a process with Automator/Applescript.

We use electronic paperwork submission for our engineer reports. They come through to by Mail account in PDF format and I am looking for a way to:

1. Rename the PDF replacing "Engineer Report_" for "ER", inserting custom text at the end of the document name and finally inserting the date after the custom text.

2. Allow me to choose the folder where I would like my newly renamed PDF document.

I know this is likely a very simple process however I've tried setting this up as an automator service I can run either from Mail or from Preview and I'm having no joy.

What errors are you getting, if any? Does your Automator workflow work when invoked manually? Are you having trouble setting it up as a service?
