Use Sample Rules

Hazel includes five sample rules you can add to any folder as a starting point for creating your own rules.

To add the sample rules:

  • Select a folder in Hazel’s “Folders” list.

  • Choose Help > “Load Sample Rules.”

  • To enable a rule, select its checkbox.

The sample rules (all disabled by default) appear in that folder’s “Rules” list. You can edit any of these rules to meet your needs.

Some sample rules include descriptions, as indicated by a blue Note   icon. Click the icon for more information on what the rule does.
