How to process multiple color labels? Wed May 29, 2024 11:58 pm • by jamesward

I have one main folder: "Inbox". My downloads go into it, I save new files into it, etc. I would like for Hazel to watch the Inbox and move files based on color label. For example, move files that I label orange to an "Organize" folder, move files that I label yellow to a "Read" folder, etc. When I set up the folder in Hazel and the rules for each color, Hazel only processes the first one rule and ignores all others.
How can I get it to process multiple color labels and file things away?

Thanks in advance!

By default, only the first rule to match is the one that gets run. If you want a file to continue matching after the first one, you need to add a Continue action to the rule.
