  1. Thanks @Vero I just rebuilt my machine from scratch, thinking maybe it was some remnant of my upgrading from Catalina. Still no dice. The path does not change even though the Outlook version number is 16 now rather than 15. All of my other workflows are fine so I guess MS changed something.
  2. Vero, I have Googled it and can find no information on if any changes have been made. I can visually verify that the message files are still being saved in the same location and they appear to not be encrypted. Other than that, I am way out of my league on troubleshooting this. I was hoping more seasoned Alfereders had experienced it here!
  3. I verified that it has both Accessibility and Full Disk permissions but it is acting like it can't search the folder - no results no matter what I search for. Anyone had any issues with disk access permissions since upgrading to Big Sur? Using a simple search workflow limited to the Outlook messages folder in the library. I have used it for years with no trouble.
  4. As long as you are using Outlook version 15, that should work, dadgumit. The file path would be different for any other version. We might have to get somebody with Alfred to weigh in on this one as I am not sure what else could be the issue.
  5. As-downloaded, it only searches the subject. You can modify this by double-clicking on the search string... ...and then going to the Advanced tab and adding the kMDItemTextContent field by pressing the + button on the lower right corner:
  6. I am looking for someone that is familiar with Alfred enough to set up a script filter that can search a given folder for a keyword and give me the ability to change the sorting of the query results. It's ok if I have to change this in code - doesn't have to be a UI toggle or anything like that. For example, I want to search for an e-mail in Outlook with the number 456 in the subject line. I hit my hotkey, enter "456" and three hits appear, sorted by send date and actually SHOWING the send date. I need to be able to do this for Outlook message searches and standard file searches in a g
  7. I have had this issue with Applescript as well. You might want to look at your Outlook notifications for an account permissions flag. That ended up being my problem...and one that Microsoft/Apple still has not corrected.
  8. Did you bind a shortcut key specifically to this workflow, Bud? If you are seeing the "Alfred Hat" as shown circled in red below, that is the general search. You want the new Outlook icon on the search box (circled in green).
  9. Version that works with the new version of Outlook is available on this thread.
  10. I just posted it here, Vero. Hope it helps. I also posed a question there that you pros might be able to help me with!
  11. This is a workflow that will search the subject field of emails in the new version of Outlook for Mac that is currently available to Office 365 subscribers. Additional fields can be added in the advanced section of the file filter. The new version has a different data path as well as a new file type, so the old Outlook searches were not working. If anyone knows how to make the date the e-mail was received show up where the file path shows in the results, I would be your best friend. The workflow can be downloaded HERE.
  12. That was indeed where the problem was, David. I actually gave up and created my own from a template just before you posted this and figured out that was where the problem was. I admit I did not realize it was this easy to create your own workflows. I have made a few with Applescripts now and am really seeing how much use I can get out of Alfred...very exciting. Thanks for the reply, David!
  13. I am trying to modify the Outlook workflows posted here to work with the new version of Outlook. I added the new data path to the search scope (Users ▸ brad ▸ Library ▸ Group Containers ▸ UBF8T346G9.Office ▸ Outlook ▸ Outlook 15 Profiles ▸ Main Profile ▸ Data) but it does seem to find anything no matter what I search for. Spotlight finds things without any problems when I use the search parameter "kMDItemTitle", which is what I want, to be able to search for a subject string. Anyone have any ideas? This is the only thing keeping me from moving away from Mail.app for good (the Exchange
  14. Is it possible to modify the Search Mail workflow to open in the parent Mail window when I click on a result rather than opening in a new window? I found the custom trigger for it (awesome!) but having to close the additional mail window it opens in adds a big step to my routine (I do hundreds of mail searches a day). Sorry if this is a noob question, but I am an Alfred noob I searched the forum and could not find anything on this. Loving it so far! Boutwell
