Bounce rule not bouncing Tue Oct 22, 2019 8:23 am • by spawnreaper

I have made a rule that I want to run every two minutes. So I made (what I call) a bounce rule.
Two folders 1 and 2. Text files inside 1

Rule folder 1:
If text file in folder, run script and move text file to folder 2

Rule folder 2:
If file added longer then 2 minutes ago, move text file back to folder 1.

Now. maybe there is an easier way to run a script in a loop with a delay but this way should work as well.

Rule works on testing and manual run but the rule does not scan folder 1 consistently.

It looks like you are creating an infinite loop. Hazel may be protecting against this. Can you provide logs?
