Question Automatically create Collection folders on device root when sending to device

Hello fellows, I've been long searching on the forum but couldn't come up with a proper solution. What I would like to achieve is storing books in such a folder structure on my Kobo whenever I hit the Send to device button in Calibre:

Code:
[Collection]/[Author]/[Title]
This is because I'm mainly using koreader on my Kobo Aura One as a great alternative to the default Kobo software (named 'nickel') and Calibre, by default, stores books on the device root according to the following folder structure:

Code:
[Author]/[Title]
Differently from the stock Kobo software, koreader doesn't have a Collection browser and presents you with just a file browser and, as you can imagine, navigating through all the author folders can get quite messy when you have hundreds of books.

So, is there any way to tell Calibre to create the above structure on my Kobo?

Thanks in advance to whoever will reach out!

you were SO CLOSE. Just put the field LOOKUP names in the { } (remember customs start with #, slash is a folder. a Leading slash starts at the root (or as close as the Mount allows)
Code:
/{#collection}/{Authors}/{Title}
