File System - Rename File to Parent Folder

This bot will demonstrate how Automate can rename a filename to its parent folder name using the ExtractFilePath function. Using the Metadata Action, we will obtain the file path, parent folder name and file extension. Combining these variables we will rename the selected file to the parent folder name.

With this bot we will learn how to:

  • Select files using the “Open File” action
  • Obtain information from a file using the Metadata action
  • Rename files using the Rename action
