Rename file Action

After its completion the Rename file Action retains some its operational data such as the (full path and) filenames of renamed files both before and after file renaming has been performed as well as the number of renamed files and completion status of the file renaming procedure.

These dynamic data on file renaming can be retrieved by the means of Variable Wizard and used for automatic ad-hoc configuration of the next Actions, thus streamlining automatic file renaming into the wider context of the Task.
