How to install Fetch's Automator Actions? (4 posts)

    I'm trying to set up an Automator Action to upload some files to a WebDAV server... I downloaded Fetch because I'm hoping its upload Action will work for me. However, I can't seem to find the Fetch actions in Automator's actions list... Am I missing something? Are they just supposed to show up? Or do I need to install them somehow?

    I don't see them in the Fetch 5.5.2 i just downloaded...

    Help!?

    Hi,

    On Mac OS X 10.5 and later, the Fetch Automator actions are listed under the "Internet" category in Automator.

    If you don't see them there, try doing the following:

    * Quit Automator if it's running.
    * Open Fetch.
    * Hold down the Option key while opening Automator.
    * Now look under the Internet category for them.

    Let us know if you're still having problems.

    That said, Fetch may not be able to help you, because Fetch does not support WebDAV connections, sorry. But if you want to automate FTP, SFTP, or FTP with TLS/SSL connections, Fetch will do it and we'll try to help you out with any problems you run into.

    Thanks,

    I am also having the same problem. I had Fetch 5.3 and just downloaded 5.6 and neither of them have actions that are showing up in Automator. I tried opening the application while holding down the option key and nothing happened. Is there something else I can do to make the actions show up?

    Thanks!

    Hi Treehouse tech,

    Try the following - yes, I realize you did some of the before, and yes, they are kind of repetitive. Nevertheless, I've found doing the steps below usually sorts out the problem when just doing it once doesn't do the trick. It seems like sometimes Automator needs to be prodded an extra time or two...

    * Quit Automator if it's running.
    * Quit Fetch if it's running.
    * Open Fetch.
    * Hold down the Option key while opening Automator.
    * Now look under the Internet category for the actions again (if you see them, great, otherwise, continue).
    * Quit Automator.
    * Quit Fetch.
    * Open Fetch again.
    * Quit Fetch again.
    * Open Automator again (but do not hold down the Option key while opening it).

    Do you see the Fetch actions listed under the "Internet" category now?

    Thanks,
