Hello, my name is Mike and I work in Learning and Development. I have an idea to help with a workflow creating facilitator guides, but I have minimal Applescript and Hazel experience. If you could please lend me some help or a starting point (or even which of these steps are Hazel-capable and which are Applescript) that would be much appreciated.


Here's what I have in mind for the workflow:

Power point is Dropped into a Folder named Facilitator Guide Input
Hazel looks for files with the .ppt ext
Once triggered, PPT is added to iPhoto by slide and creates an album titled the same as the PPT , then deletes ppt from Facilitator Guide Input
These slides, now in iPhoto are then imported to a new iBook author file on a separate created template with space for callouts and notes.
iBook Author File is saved to a folder titled: Facilitator Guide Output

Hi Mike,

Apologies for my ignorance, but what is Hazel?
