Step two

The second step is creating your rules to decide how to want to rename. Here we want to prefix parent folders to our file names. You do this by going to the Insert tab and selecting this special tag, then add the position based Insert rule.
Select the parent folder tag
Select the folder.parentFolder tag
Once you have created the ruleset, this is what the Rules window should look like.
