File Organization

Hazel looks like a must have Mac OS X utility. I have been using an Applescript that automatically keeps my downloads folder organized by day, and that is a very useful solution, but this looks like it will take that to the next level.

On this project, I seem to have a million documents and versions to keep track of, and since a lot of the end users and creators of those documents are non-technical, using our SVN repository as the master document archive would require way too much time on my part. I try really hard to keep the most recent versions of everything in DevonThink, but it's virtually impossible for me to keep up with all the updates. We would use Basecamp, but the lack of versioning makes that feature not as useful. I think we are going to just use a corporate eRoom to manage them for now, but even that is not a perfect solution. I'm curious if anyone else has a toolset that they would recommend for this task.

We use LiveLink! It's an Enterprise (with a capital E) solution that devours documents and provides more functionality than one could ever hope to master. It's perfect.
