There's a nifty service called IFTTT (which stands for "If This Then That") that, among many other things, will allow you to create "Recipes" to automate certain tasks within certain "Channels". Here's an example of an IFTTT recipe that saves "starred" Gmail attachments to an Evernote account. (Gmail and Evernote are just 2 of more than 160 "Channels" ...


You will need to add the parent label as well, even if the sub-label is supposed to be nesting.
