rules exceptions?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I try to create a rules that does the following but cannot get it done:

I have a lot of folders which I sometimes read but usually not and set up a rule "all new articles which contain" e.g. "soccer" should be tagged "Soccer Tag". This is to alert me if there is news in a folder I usually don't read. Easy.

But now the problem: I have a folder where all my "soccer" related news come together ("Soccer news"). That folder I read and I do not want to have those articles tagged with the above rules as this defies the purpose of the rule.

Is there any way to tell Inoreader to ignore that "Soccer news" folder?

I tried 2-3 ways but exceptions seem very hard to create with Inoreader.

I would be grateful for any help!

At this stage there is no such feature available for the rules. 

But you can easily achieve this, creating rules for the folders you need to monitor, except choosing "all articles in subscription".

would it be possible to add "tag" as criteria (like "title or content", "Title", etc)? That would allow to filter out certain folders. I guess this depends on in which order the rules are run but this should be a major improvement.

You can use "New tagged article" in the trigger section.  

ya but I don't see how this is helpful as I cannot filter e.g. by folder to make a rule "if XYZ tag is applied and the article is not in folder ABC then..."

It is basically the same problem in reverse: the trigger "new article in folder" doesn't allow to do things with tags and vv.

IHMO "tag" should be added as matching criteria as this also allows to work with folders (as folders are automatically added as tag)

well, I don't know if there is a particular reason why "tag" has not been added to the matching criteria but IMHO it makes sense to add it.

A rule "if XYZ tag is applied and the article is not tagged ABC [=folder name] then..." makes sense to me and also has the advantage of running after other rules.

Would be great to consider this "new feature". Thanks!
