Automator renames files instead its container

like the title already said:
when i try to rename a folder, Automator catches and runs through the folder contents, renaming all my files.
A solution?

Hello Joy.

You give us too little to work on here. :slight_smile:

Use “Ask for Finder Items” with Type: Folders.
Then add Rename Finder Items.
