  7. […] In Automator out-of-box there is no action to simply rename a file. There is one to rename a bunch of files, and add dates, prefixes, etc., but absolutley nothing that can simply rename a single file.

Select “Options” in the “Rename Finder Items” action and check the box next to “Show this action when the workflow runs”. Finally figured it out!
