I have been able to create an Automator workflow that mounts an external drive I have connected wirelessly. If I double-click the workflow - the drive mounts.
How can I have the workflow execute at log-on?
I have tried placing it in the Startup folder but it does not execute.

Thank you.

Never mind putting the work flow in your login items (though, that should work as well)

When you're logged into your file share, open System Preferences > Accounts > Your Account > Login Items

Drag the mounted network share into that list.

Now when you log in, it'll mount that share.

Disko - thank you, that works but it opens the drive in Finder.
I just want it mounted. Can I just have it to mount?

Save the workflow as an Application

Add to System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items
