1. Connect our camera via USB or insert a memory-card.
2. Chose "Import" and then the device (cam or card)
3. Find on the right site the preferences of the import workflow.
	eventually you need to chose the preferences-tab on the right.

I'm not sure, if it work well with your wanted structure:
.../RAW then date-directories.
Because there only checkboxes for suffix-based and date-based subdirectories.
In my case - date over suffix - it works well.
But don't know, if you can toggle this to suffix over date.

in this side-window you can also select your prefered lossless file format.

By creating a new collection and test-directories, you can pla and test 
digicams behaviour.
