Additional folder name format YYYY_MM_DD

Asked by Roman Shumikhin on 2016-01-07

Hi Damon,

Thank you very much for your application, I am using it every day to transfer images from my camera!
Is it possible to add YYYY_MM_DD to the list of the supported folder names?
I have two digital cameras: Cannon and Olympus and they both use that format for folder names, I would like to keep it consistent since all my folder names are already in that format.
As a temporary measure I modified generatenameconfig.py and added that format there manually, but these changes will probably be lost next time you release an update for your wonderful application ;)

Thank you very much in advance,
Roman

Hi Roman,

It's easy to construct that format yourself. Here's how:

In the subfolder program preferences, select YYYY. Then click the plus sign, select text, and put _ for the text value. Click the plus sign again, enter MM, and so forth.

For the next version I think I will need to come up with an alternative way of configuring this, as you are not the first user to be unaware of this feature.

Best,
Damon

Thanks Damon Lynch, that solved my question.
