Folder Actions for Keep It

Saving files Directly to Keep It’s Folders

When Finder integration is enabled, any file or folder added to Keep It’s location in the Finder (or standard Save panels) will be automatically imported. See here for more information about Finder integration.

If Keep It is not using Finder integration, you can create an alias to Keep It's files folder wherever you like:

Any files (not folders) you add there will be automatically imported into Keep It.

Watching a Different Folder

However, if you want to watch another folder for changes, you can do that with Folder Actions. The Automator app makes it easy to set these up.
