Another quickie from my own personal self, a Things workflow for adding tasks that also, thanks to Alfred's feedback system, searches them. I've been pestering Cultured Code to add this to the Quick Entry panel for ages, since I have a tendency to add one task five times (the number of incomplete "Watch and return Netflix DVDs" tasks I have floating around at any given time is absurd), but now Alfred will handle it for you! Just enter "things" to see a list of all projects, areas, and tasks; keep typing to start entering a task using the plug-in syntax (see below) while searching through pre-existing tasks. Select any item to show it in Things. You can also skip searching new items by adding a plus sign to your input (e.g., "things +Get this done").
The format for new tasks is as follows:
#tag1 #tag2 name [project/area] ::note >duedate
…with duedate specified in the format MM/DD/YYYY.
Give it a try and let me know if anything else breaks!
