  1. Two options: Remove the unused identity and rename the working one to match the default name. Edit the path in the workflow (by far the easiest) to reflect the custom path that applies on your Mac. Corentin
  2. And by the way, with the latest version of the script, for a contact the shorthand should have been “olkc Katie” (olkc for contacts, olkm for messages and olke for events).
  3. I've never seen the database file error. The way the workflow work is by searching through Spotlight for filetypes belonging to Outlook (contacts, messages and events) in the ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/Main Profile folder. It could be: Some sort of permission issue (check that the ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/Main Profile folder is readable) A path issue (lets say, your database had to be renamed because of a corruption, do you have more than one profile folder in ~/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/Outlook/Outlook 15 Profiles/?) A launch service database issue (you need to rebuild the launch service database, a free app like Onyx could do that for you). Corentin
  4. The workflows leverage Spotlight customized searches which can be used in any apps and are not affected but the new Mojave security restrictions. Many of the other workflows for Alfred rely on scripts and require that Alfred has special authorization in the Security & Privacy prefpane (Security > Accessibility and Automation). The problem most of the time is either that the System doesn't notice that the app has been added to Accessibility (but you can uncheck and recheck the app), or that it doesn't prompt you to add it to the Automation section (and then, as to now, you can't do a thing to trigger the warning allowing you to add the app in Automations). Corentin
  5. I edited the workflow to replace references to Outlook 15 to 2016. All three triggers are provided in one workflow. You can find the new one here: http://www.cortig.net/files/Outlook2016Searches.alfredworkflow.zip Corentin
  6. Outlook 15.x and 16.x work through the same mechanisms. The workflow for Outlook "15" should work just the same in Outlook "16" (both still labeled as Outlook 2016 actually): http://www.cortig.net/files/Outlook15Workflows.zip I'm using the workflow myself on my Mac and it's working fine. I can search for messages, contacts, etc, and select the messages in Alfred to see them in Outlook. What do you mean it's not clickable? What happens when you hit Return on one of the returns in Alfred? Corentin
  7. And if that’s the case, the answer is simple: install the workflow offered here and whenever you want to search for Outlook contacts use the trigger to search through the workflow.
  8. I'm not sure I"m following you. Did you install the workflow for Alfred offered here? The latest version is at http://www.cortig.net/files/Outlook15Workflows.zip Corentin
  9. Nice, thanks!! I had completely forgotten to update the workflows for Outlook 15. Editing the previous ones is fairly trivial, but in case people don't know the location of the identity in Outlook 15, or the details that need adjustments, I placed updated (Outlook 15 only) workflows in a zip archive here: http://www.cortig.net/files/Outlook15Workflows.zip I didn't mean to duplicate your new workflow boutwell. I thought reposting the whole set was still useful since you only provided the workflow for messages, and not contacts and calendar events. Corentin
  10. I tried deleting my message but I was't fast enough :-> It turns out I had not clicked on the Add iOS remote button yet… I was under the false assumption that this was only for local connections from the same LAN and not for direct connections for the WAN. I clicked it and was able to "pair" the Mac and the remote. Corentin
  11. I'm not sure you can do that with a workflow at all. Though you can change the keyword for the workflow: simply select the workflow in the list of workflow in the Preferences of Alfred, then double-click the File Filter that says olkm. In the Basic Setup you can enter whatever shortcut (e.g.: simply o). Corentin
  12. I can't figure out what go be wrong in your case. I simply cannot manage to reproduce the issue. Are you having simialr issues with other workflows, or just this one? Have you tried the other Outlook workflows (contacts and events)? Corentin
  13. I really tried, but I can't reproduce the problem. Alfred is not localized at all, so it's one more reason why having the OS in German shouldn't have any impact. You could easily test this out by using your OS in English for a while. Even with my System in German, it's working here as intended and I don't remember hearing (reading) that anybody else had the same issue. Any chance another workflow could be intercepting the shortcut? Another app like TextExpander or Keyboard Maestro maybe? Have you tried changing the keyword to see whether you still had the issue? Corentin
  14. The language of the OS shouldn't matter the least. After the search keyword (oklm here), you should enter a space, then the query itself. Eg: oklm Corentin searches Outlook e-mails for Corentin. Corentin
  15. It's not as hard as it looks. Spotlight uses special keywords to restrict the searches. You could enter all that string straight in Spotlight: kMDItemUsedDates:2013-06-23 kMDItemAuthors:Mike kMDItemTitle:"Top Score" kind:Olk14_Message The first keyword has the date of the item, in computer format. The second one is for the author The third for the title and the "Kind" restricts the search to Outlook e-mails. Once you know what keywords to use, you can play with that extensively in Spotlight itself. As I was saying, you introduce too many parameters to make it practical in Alfred itself but it should be easier to use in Spotlight. Corentin
