    Is it possible to select a folder

    Zip all files in that folder

    And rename the zip file with todays date and a filename i.e. and

    move the new file to another folder

    Delete all the files in the original folder?

    It would be possible to write an AppleScript to do that, but it would involve downloading the folder to your Mac, creating the Zip archive on your Mac, and uploading the Zip archive back to the server. There's currently no way for Fetch to tell the server to create the Zip archive directly.
