Almost every Mover Task requires you to select at least one folder. That folder designates where to find or place files that are to be processed by the Task... and as you create more Processes and their associated Tasks you can end up with lots of folders. So unless you have a basic methodology for naming and structuring these folders it can quickly get confusing.
So I highly recommend a very simple solution... one that Mover itself understands and thus can help manage along the way.
For each Process, create a folder in the 'Base Path' with the same exact name as the Process itself. So if I have a Process called "Get-Upload Mail" then create the folder "<Base Path>\Get-Upload Mail"... and place all the required Task folders in that folder. This is called the "Process Folder".
Now as you invoke any Task related "select folder dialog" Mover will default directly to the proper Process Folder... where you can quickly see just the other folders used in that Process.
When you create a new Process, Mover can automatically create the Process Folder for you. On the dialog where you name your new Process there is a check box (checked by default) "Create 'Process Folder'" in 'Base Path'". Simply leave it checked and the folder will be created for you.
Above: Clicking OK will create the Process called "MyNewProcess" along with a folder in the "Base Path" called "MyNewProcess".
If for some reason you need to select a folder that is not within the Process Folder, there is an option on the "select folder dialog" "Show 'Process Folder' Only". Uncheck it and you will see all the folders located in the Base Path.
Above: While working on a Task in the Process called "MakeImageRenditions", selecting a folder with "Show 'Process Folder' Only" check box checked I only see the folders in the "MakeImageRenditons" Process folder.
