Hi, #deanishe thank you so much for responding!
Yes, there are a couple different "from" and "to" files that I would eventually like to do this with, but by far the most common, is the following.
The document would start out at this location:
And I would want to move it to this location:
/Users/ian/Dropbox (Ian)/7. Reference Files/03 LoicClients
So, in an ideal world there is a file in my "#Inbox" folder and I highlight it and use Alfred, and two things happen (in this order), 1) the file magics over to "03 LoicClients" and 2) a link is created from the file (in its new location) to the inbox of my task manager program (which is called Things3).
Also, there is a keyboard shortcut that creates a link from a file to Things3 so I don't know if that would be part of the code somehow, it is: Control-Option-Space
For context, the end objective or motive for me, is that as I go through the process of naming and filing all my new stuff (from #Inbox to LoicClients) I do not have to simultaneously figure out what action to take on that stuff -- I just need to identify if SOMETHING remains to be done with it, and then when I am in a separate mental state, I can go to my Things3 Inbox and figure out what al those somethings are that need to be done. Most of the stuff, will just get filed. But some of it I will identify as actionable and link back to Things3. (That is, later on, when I am in Things3 the link will take me to the file; The link will end up existing in Things3 and take me to the file).
If you can put me on the right path I would definitely appreciate that! A disclaimer; some of these forum topics go over my head, for example when people are talking about code, I don't even know where I am supposed to type the code. I've read the intro to Workflows etc, but then there is a big gap between that and many of the forum posts...but I am willing to dig into this, given a starting point.
