  1. With the "new normal", many of us are working from home and jumping from one virtual meeting to the next to the next: from Zoom to Google Meet to GoToMeeting, etc. To save the pain of scrambling to open your next meeting link, I have written a workflow just for that! It's called "Open Conference URL", and its usage is simple: type conf to see your upcoming calendar events. Hit Enter to launch Zoom/Meet/etc. immediately. And even if you are 15 minutes late, the workflow will know what to do. (Download Workflow) If there are no nearby calendar events, the workflow di
  2. Thanks for the Alfred YouVersion workflow Caleb! Very handy! :)

  3. Hi, Occasionally, I find myself unintentionally force quitting an application through Alfred when I didn't mean to (when I instead meant to launch an application like Forklift. Because force quitting can be a potentially destructive operation (bypassing save dialogs and such), I would greatly appreciate an option to confirm before force quitting any application (much like the Alfred confirm dialogs for "Shut Down" and "Quit All"). Thanks, Caleb
  4. Hi, First of all, I just want to say that Alfred totally rocks, as it makes me so much more efficient. When I used Alfred 2, I would always keep the "Fade in Alfred Window" setting disabled because I liked being able to use Alfred immediately. However, when I upgraded to Alfred 3, I noticed that the Large Type overlay fades in, which I find rather annoying. I also find it inconsistent, since the overlay has no fade-out animation and since Alfred 3 has seemed to remove the "Fade in Alfred window" setting anyway. Therefore, I'm asking that the fade-in animation for Large Type be remo
  5. Alright, @deanishe, I've installed your updated version of the test workflow. Here's the debugger output after running it: Starting debug for 'Do More Stuff' [2016-06-02 11:44:24][utility.debug] Reading from query: passed [2016-06-02 11:44:24][utility.debug] Reading from argv: failed [2016-06-02 11:44:24][ERROR: action.script] /Users/Caleb/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Scripts /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python27.zip /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7 /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/
  6. Hi, I've been working to improve Alfred 3 support for one of the workflows I maintain (written in Python). For every one of my Script Filter and Run Script objects, I used to have the "with input as {query}" option selected. Since Alfred 3 introduced the ability to read input from argv (and recommends it), I was working today on updating my code to switch to reading via argv instead of via {query}. However, when I change the selected option in my workflow objects and update my code to use sys.argv[1] instead of '{query}', my workflow-local Python modules (i.e. modules I place in the di
  7. HI, I'm a huge fan of Alfred, and I use it every day for many things. In my setup, there are always a number of directories I like to exclude from Alfred's result list (such as any node_modules/ or bin/ directories). Currently, I must always manually add them to the Privacy tab in Spotlight preferences, though this is far from ideal (because I have two Macs, I must perform this chore on them both). I llooked through the Alfred docs in search of a better solution (ideally, something I could automate) and discovered the alfred:ignore Spotlight comment, which was exactly what I needed (or
  8. Hi, I've noticed recently that the Only show words with OS X Dictionary definition preference seems to behave counterintuitively. I am running Alfred 2.7.1 on OS X Yosemite (10.10.3). When the option is enabled (checked), I always see a result for words that don't exist in the Dictionary: When the option is disabled (unchecked), I see what I would expect to see if the option were enabled (that is, Alfred only shows Dictionary words that actually exist): Of course, the temporary workaround for me is obvious, so I'm not asking for a solution to this issue. Rather, I sim
  9. The reload fixed it; I can't believe I didn't think of that. Thanks very much. Caleb
  10. Hi, I use Homebrew Cask to install and manage a number of applications on my system. However, for each application that I've installed via Cask, I am seeing duplicate results for said application in the Alfred search results (see picture below( My /Applications/ folder only contains aliases for those that applications that I've installed via Cask. I also have my Applications folder and Caskroom folder on my search scope (see second picture below). Is this a bug? Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thanks, Caleb
  11. Fair enough. In that case, I'll just write an AppleScript to reformat phone numbers in my contacts consistently. Thanks, Caleb
  12. Hi, I love Alfred's built-in contact viewer, and I use it all the time. However, I've noticed that phone numbers are always displayed as how they were originally typed into the contact viewer. For example, if I type a create a new contact and add a phone number with no separators (e.g. 1234567890), the phone number would display exactly as such when viewing the respective contact in Alfred. I would much prefer that phone numbers within Alfred's contact viewer be consistently formatted. I would much prefer a format such as 123-456-7890, though perhaps a menu of options to choose from wo
  13. Hi, I love the ability to search for and view contacts directly in Alfred. However, the contacts always show in the general Alfred search results, resulting in apps mixed with contacts. I would much prefer that the contact search be triggered via some user-defined keyword. Could this option be added? Thanks, Caleb
  14. I actually did add that functionality at one point. However, the logic was rather complicated and unreliable, so I removed the feature.
  15. What does it do? YouVersion Suggest is a workflow which allows you to search across the YouVersion Bible for any verse, chapter, or book (in any version). Why do I want it? I created YouVersion Suggest because I wanted to great simplify the effort required to look up any Bible reference (be it a verse or chapter or book in a particular version). As a believer in Christ, I think that quick and easy access to Scripture is important, and so that's exactly what I've tried to do. How does it work? Type the yv keyword in Alfred, followed by a space and a phrase representing
