Rules are Hazel’s central and most important feature. These topics describe how to work with rules in various ways:
Understand the Logic of Rules
: Learn about the internal logic Hazel employs when evaluating rules (and how to alter its default behavior when needed).
Create a Rule
: Set up a simple rule consisting of one or more conditions and one or more actions.
Copy or Move a Rule
: Copy or move a rule to a different folder, where you can then customize it further if needed.
Edit or Remove a Rule
: Alter an existing rule, or delete a rule you no longer need.
Use Sample Rules
: Add Hazel’s built-in sample rules to any folder, learn what they do, and enable or edit them.
: Look for rules matching any text string, and filter the display to show only those rules.
