  1. I'm looking for a way to create a new OneNote in a specific notebook and section and give it a name of the current date and time.


    I know I can create a note with the following script, but it simply creates it in whichever notebook/section is open. I'm not sure how to specify the notebook and section, or turn the date/time into the title before invoking the tab keystroke.


    on alfred_script(q)
      tell application "System Events" to keystroke "c" using {command down}
      delay 1
      tell application "Microsoft OneNote" to activate
      tell application "System Events" to keystroke "n" using {command down}
      tell application "System Events" to keystroke tab
    end alfred_script



  2. I'd like to have a workflow that when triggered opens a specified URL in a NEW Chrome window, and then to open 3 more tabs to specific URLs in that specific window.

    I can't seem to figure out how to have it trigger to create a new window, rather than just add tabs to an open window.

  3. I'm stuck trying to get alfred to launch an automator workflow with a file passed to it.


    I have a trigger that is grabbing 1 CSV file that I want to pass through to automator. I have an automator workflow that starts with Get Selected Finder Items. I saved my automator as an application. If I go to a file in finder and open with and pick the target file the automator runs fine.


    I setup the workflow to do a file action to open and dragged my automator application to open with. When I run the alfred workflow though I end up with the csv opened in excel.


    It's a keyword trigger that is searching for files that match a set name pattern a specific folder sorted by newest first. The automator that I setup then deletes a file from another specific folder, moves the input file to that folder and renames it to a specific name. Essentially what I am wanting to do is select the file in alfred, and then replace an existing file with the selected one. The filename needs to end up being the specific one specified.


    The Alfred and automator workflows are here:






  4. I'm a little perplexed at the best way (or any way actually) to do this. I'd like to have a workflow that opens the newest file in a set folder automatically. I have a workflow that opens said folder, but the reality is 99.9% of the time when I go to this folder (multiple times a day), what I am looking for is the newest file. How can I open a specific file if I don't know the file name in advance?

  5. Set it up so that I can highlight something on the screen and then send what I highlighted to an alfred workflow by right clicking instead of copying and then calling up alfred, typing my workflow and then pasting.


    In specific I am using UniCall.  I'd love to be able to select a phone number in a browser and then right click and have it automatically execute a <Option-Space> Call <command - v> <return>


    Maybe I'm just dreaming of being too lazy, but I make 70-100 phone calls a day and figuring there must be an easier way.


    bye the way I am not a programmer so any solutions need to be geared toward some with with decent tech skills, but not smart enough to have a programmers mind.

  6. I'm trying out creating my first workflow.  I thought it would be a simple one, but I'm having what I am sure is a newbie challenge.


    I wanted to create a workflow that opens all of the apps/urls I need when I am starting working on a particular project.


    I started with the template to Open custom URL in specified browser.  After setting the first one up I clicked on the + and added the additional actions (2 more custom URL actions and 1 launch multiple files).  They all add on the screen, but the line linking them to my keyword isn't there.  Just for the original item.


    Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?
