digikam Batch Queue Manager - trying to use script: can't make it work


I just installed Digikam v5.5.0 on Ubuntu MATE 16.04. I am new to Digikam so just learning. I can't get the script to run properly.

I am trying to move processed pictures from the Digikam Album Directory to another directory.

Here is my script
    rsync -avz /home/polly/VB-share/processedFiles /home/polly/digikam-receiving (works fine in the terminal)
I don't follow what the instructions in the attachment mean. Hope someone can help decipher that for me.
I tried putting name of the script and then the CODE above into the shell script window with no success ( files don't get moved).

In the digikam Settings=>Configure Notification window I have checked off Batch Queue Completed and Show message boxes.
In the Run Command box I have inserted /home/polly/

Thanks for any help you can give me on this issue,

Dunno whether that's the case here, but normally you start a script with a shebang (thus naming the shell), like "#!/bin/bash" or whatever shell you use. Might be worth a try. See also
