Media Encoder workflow

I'll get straight to the point:
I own two systems. I do all my video edits on my 12-core Mac Pro.
But, because it's the trashcan one, I can't add storage to it, so...
I also have a 6-core PC with PLENTY of space, just added an 8TB HDD to it.

Here's what I'm trying to do:

1- Import video from GoPro HERO 5 and 7
2- Convert to ProRes 422 Proxy to allow Resolve to edit without stuttering
3- On the Mac, pull the files for each video and edit

Now, here's what I need Media Encoder to do:

1- Watch the folder the GoPro videos get dumped in (via GoPro Quik app)
2- Automatically convert them, keeping file folder structure, Quik separates them by camera and by date. For example, it'll look like this:

W:\IMPORT\2019-05-24\GOPRO HERO 5\filename.mp4
W:\IMPORT\2019-05-24\GOPRO HERO 7\filename.mp4

I need AME to put them, after conversion, in:

W:\IMPORT\OUTPUT\2019-05-24\GOPRO HERO 5\filename.mp4

I've gotten as far as adding the watch folder and choosing the ProRes 422 Proxy preset.
What's next?

Thanks in advance!
