Ask for folder to move to Mon Nov 04, 2019 2:30 pm • by RiseUp
Hey guys,

I am looking to implement the following workflow:

When I create a new Google Doc, it is created in the root folder of GDrive. Since I am syncing my GDrive to my Mac local disk, Hazel can recognize that there is a new GDoc that was created. Now: I want Hazel to ask me where it should move this file to, so I can choose the folder in Finder, and Hazel moves the file to the folder I selected.

That way, I do not have to care about moving the file using the Google Docs interface, which is a pain.

Question: How can I set Hazel to ask me for the folder to move a file to?

Thanks in advance!

You'll need to write an AppleScript to do that. Search the forums as I believe someone has done a similar script in the past.
