  1. Thanks for a great flow Personally I'd stick with "recent" as it seems very applicable and matches Apple's own terminology for this capability.
  2. Hi Carl - great idea; I can see this becoming a part of my daily flow as I already do similar but manually using standard Alfred file actions. Good template too for how to create a pretty comprehensive flow too. My primary request would be the customisation of the DeskDrawer folder. The current location is not indexed by Alfred and so the contents won't show in regular searches - while I can update Alfred's search scope, I'd rather not have to, plus I could also host the folder via Dropbox to sync the data between machines. In the short term, I guess I just need to update the includes.sh file and "deskdrawer="$CDWD/DeskDrawer" variable to manually change location? EDIT: Found that changing $deskdrawer works if I manually create the deskdrawer folder - the check for the folder existing, and creating if not, it needs to be updated. Otherwise seems to work fine Thanks again - great flow
  3. Hi Vero Short URL to the above image is: http://note.io/X5GM72 - gets accepted perfectly fine in the edit dialog, showing the image. The error message is generated on Post.
  4. I guess to Tomo's point: BTW: Whats with the forum not accepting short links for image urls?
  5. FYI: I too have to click the prowl notification to launch the dialer. I had assumed that was how it was supposed to work
  6. Perfect - and more elegant than my hack Many thanks
  7. Thanks for a great workflow. One improvement if I may: When validating the phone number you remove all non-digits from the number and then pass that stripped number to Prowl with the URL tel://$phoneno Note however + is a valid symbol and used often to store international numbers. Personally I store all numbers with an international prefix so they are accessible from wherever I might be. Stripping the + character causes such numbers to fail dialling I've implemented a hack where I reset $phoneno as: phoneno=${arg//[-. ]/} after the validity check - but I'm sure there's a more elegant way you could implement this /sphardy
  8. In playing with Custom Contact Actions could I also suggest the addition of supporting multiple custom actions per contact field. Currently it appears only one custom action per field is possible - eg when I assign my Skype workflow to the phone field, the phone field is no longer an available option when defining a new custom action. Scenarios where this would be very useful: 1. Option to select "skype" or "send to iphone" workflows when highlighting a phone number 2. Selection of which email client to use when highlighting an email address (I use 2 email clients to separate business & private email) ///sphardy
  9. Hello First post - have tried to ensure I'm not duplicating. I have created a workflow for a custom contacts action - specifically to use Skype to call phone numbers leveraging a script I already had. All works just fine however when I open a contact in Alfred I see the following options when highlighting a phone number: I'd very much like to be able to define the "Perform custom action" in some way so that it is clear what the action is which is how Alfred v1 worked as shown here: Ideally I'd like to be able to define a name/description for the custom action within contacts custom action settings. This could then also be used to address a similar issue when using URL passing as a custom action. eg if I use URL passing ( skype:{query}?call ) to achieve the same function, I see the following when highlighting a phone number: I'd rather be able to define the "Pass to URL scheme" text so that the action being taken is unambiguous. An additional "Description" field in the Custom Actions section of Contacts could be used in both cases Hope this makes sense /sphardy
