Move file based on day of the week created Tue Feb 23, 2021 1:08 am • by caleb_k
Hi

I am downloading a file to my downloads folder. The file always has the same name. I want the file downloaded every Tuesday sent to folder 1 and the file downloaded every Thursday sent to folder 2. This will occur every week.

Can I do this with Hazel?

You can add a condition like "Date added occurs at/before/after". For instance, you can do "Date added occurs after 12:00am on Tuesday" which will cover Tuesday (the day ends at midnight so no need to bracket that with a corresponding "occurs before").
