New User - Redirect Data Directory to external HDD

I have installed MySQL and Workbench for my Mac and would like to store the data on an external hard drive. I have changed the data directory path through the Apple Utilities MySQL configuration options, but it doesn’t seem to have any effect and I cannot find any way to change anything in Workbench.

I am not a tech expert, so and ‘help for dummies’ advice would be much appreciated.
