The Move, Copy, and Sync commands require you to specify a destination folder. If you’ve selected a particular destination folder for more than one rule and you want to replace it with a different destination folder across all your rules that reference it, you can do so using Hazel’s “Relocate Folder” command. This allows you to change the location of a folder in all your rules at once instead of having to edit each rule individually.
Keep in mind that relocating a folder affects only which folders your rules use as destinations; it does not actually change any folders on your Mac, nor does it change which folders Hazel monitors.
To relocate a folder:
Edit a rule using the folder you want to relocate.
Go to any Move, Copy, or Sync action that uses that folder.
From the folder pop-up menu for that action, choose “Relocate Folder…”
Select either “only this folder” if you want only the original folder to be replaced, or “this folder and its subfolders” if you want to also replace any subfolders of the original folder in use by any rules. This latter option allows you to relocate a tree of folders together.
In the file dialog, you will also be presented with an option. Select whether you want only the original folder to be replaced or whether you want to also replace any subfolders of the original folder in use by any rules. This latter option allows you to relocate a tree of folders together.
Click the “Replace” button.
All rules using that folder are updated immediately, even if you cancel editing the rule without saving it.
