YYYY-MM-DD is a very good suggestion
This is on topic, but it's a problem I've encountered with batch renaming folders using Shortcuts. I having been using an applet I created with Automator that creates a hierarchy of work folders and then renames specific ones. I've tried to rebuild this shortcut, however no matter what I've tried, I haven't managed to successfully integrate the batch renaming component. Does Shortcuts not offer a find and replace feature?
Chris: A find and replace feature? Like do you mean find and replace text in text? Sure, it has that.
Is there a keyboard shortcut for typing current date in ISO8601 format?
Philip: No, but you could use my ClipTools app to do that: https://macmost.com/cliptools
Chris, not sure about shortcuts, but if you are OK running a script in R I can help u achieve that quickly. There you can set up complex regular expressions for your find and replace strategy.
