  1. I would love Alfred to search my email. Gmail and Outlook web both have fantastic search these days. The Mail app seems to be seriously lagging behind. The only reference I can find to Alfred and email is a thread from 2013 about a Powerpack script that doesn't work on Big Sur. Ideally I would like to search (incrementally?!) in OWA or Gmail accounts, but failing that, having similarly amazing search of local mail folders (by subject, date, sender, contents, etc.) Is this completely outside of Alfred's scope? Am I missing an obvious setting somewhere? Is my duck-duck-foo failing me? Thanks!
  2. My preferred way to search Google is to limit results to the past year. To do so I use this URL: https://www.google.com/webhp?cr=&tbs=,qdr:y I have attempt to enter that in the "Search URL:" field in Alfred's Preferences so that I could search within Google using that time limit just as I do on a new web tab. However Alfred's response when I click the "Lookup" function is an invalid search. The URL in the dialog box is cut off after the "/webhp" just at the question mark. I have attached a screenshot as illustration. Can anyone provide guidance as to how to use this specific Google search URL as a Custom Search? The intent is so that when I enter a term into Alfred's search field this Custom Search URL would appear as the default search. Then when I hit Return it would enter the searched term in Google's search field and activate the search just as it does for the standard Google URL. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can offer.
  3. I've started noticing Alfred not showing some apps in the results recently. Not sure what caused this, never noticed such problems that would not be fixable with `reload` command before. Beside `reload`ing, I've tried rebuilding macOS metadata, but to no avail... Is there anything I can do to pin down the issue / fix it? - Alfred version: 4.3.2 [1221] - macOS Catalina 10.15.7

  5. So I was trying to search for a folder that I use regularly and is in the "Favourites" column of finder (i.e. it's a folder that should definitely be searchable). I know I could click on Finder and click on the folder itself but I was testing it out so I could get an idea. It's an issue because it certainly should be searching for it... is there a reason why it doesn't? Also, I noticed that on clicking "Advanced" (in Alfred 4 Preferences > Features > Essentials), there's a way to change "User-defined file types to show in the default results" but I'm not sure what this means exactly? Especially as when I try to add something, it's just text and not a selection of folders/files. Can someone help me with this? I'm a complete NEWBIE with Alfred and even more so with coding so please bear with me - any advice is really appreciated. Thanks
  6. Hi there, I noticed many of my files weren't coming up in search, and it was bothering me for the longest time. I finally decided to spend some time to troubleshoot and narrow down the issue. I've concluded it has something to do with hyphens. Doesn't seem to happen with periods or underscores. However, most of my file nomenclature across my machine utilizes hyphens in this way. When I'm trying to find a file based on a section of its name, it won't come up in Alfred's search results if that section happens to be sandwiched between two other file name sections. In other words, surrounded by a hyphen on each side. Below are two screenshots that should be able to show what I'm talking about. Each screenshot should show three results. Any idea what might be causing this? Fixing this would be a life saver. Thanks in advance!

  8. First problem: A only finds 40 files at most in a ("Default") search. This is woefully inadequate. Is there any way to increase this to, say, 1-200? Second problem: There is no way, as far as I can see, to specify categories always included in the search results. That is, I would like to always find multiple file and folders matching the word I put into the search box. This could be done if the category list ("Essentials", "Extras") could be configured by percentage or, more crudely, by number. Specifically, suppose that I have a folder named "Consciousness" buried under several folders, and many pdfs with the term "Consciousness" in their titles. Well, in A as it's now set up, I will only find a max of 40 pdfs with the word "Consciousness" in their titles, and will not find the folder with that name. This does not happen when I use Spotlight; the results there are automatically divided into categories, and the folder will always be found. I don't want to have to configure a workflow to do this; that adds another step, unless that workflow can be included in the default search.
  9. I've having an issue with Alfred 4.2.1 [1887] where I cannot search for content contained within a Markdown file. Here is the breakdown between Spotlight and Alfred. Spotlight Can find .md files by name Can find .md files by content Alfred Can find .md files by name Cannot find .md files by content I ran the "File Search Troubleshooting" tool on the specific markdown file I'm trying to find and it passes with no problems. Any help on this problem is greatly appreciated!
  10. Hello, I've been having this problem lately : Alfred seems to ignore my external drive in its search results,especially folders (files tend to be omitted, but appear sometimes). I'm using this flashdrive constantly and set the search results to 40. It is in the search scope, my macos version is 10.15.7, alfred is 4.2 build 1180. Thank you in advance for your help, Cedric
  11. After exploring @deanishe's great Searchio Workflow, @nikivi's Web Searches Workflow, and asking for tips on how to best share my many Custom Searches, I decided to launch a simple website with a listing of my Custom Searches, along with icons that I'm making for each one. There are 57 searches so far, I have another 33 that I'm working on, and you can also submit your own suggestions! Would love to know if you find this valuable! Visit Alfred Custom Searches
  12. Using Spotlight i can search for .rpd files, but Alfred can't seem to find them. I have added rpd under advanced in the Default Results tab in Alfred without luck. Do any of you know what is wrong?
  13. I have recently joined this community and I was trying to find a todoist app workflow to search inside the app content, I am really satisfied with its app shortcut to add tasks and I don't want to replace it with alfred (my projects have emojis and it would be tedious as I can't use snippets on Alfred's search). There are Some workflows which can be used to create and check tasks but I consider it miscellaneous But as I want alfred a global searcher I want a workflow which just searches inside the app, I don't think the API token would be necessary is there a tutorial for easily creating one?, I have tried changing other app workflow (obsidian) to search but it doesn't work Some help??
  14. Alfred 4.1 Mac OS 10.15.5 FUSE 3.10.4. Cryptomator 1.5.6 MacBook Pro (Early 2015) --- Hi there! Spotlight doesn't index FUSE drives by default and I wonder if Alfred can do this? I'd like to search a virtual drive (created by Cryptomator and FUSE) and I added its path to Alfreds scope. Unfortunately this didn't work so far. Without the ability to search files the drive becomes almost worthlessโ€ฆ I'm looking to Alfred because I don't want to deal with the mount-time options of FUSE. Is this supported by Powerpack? Thanks in advance!
  15. Hi everyone, I've made some simple workflow searching chatting room of Kakaotalk. You can download and try it on below repository. https://github.com/jopemachine/alfred-kakaotalk-workflow
  16. This workflow enables you to search your hook productivity bookmarks. You can get our workflow from Hook's Alfred page. Regarding Hook and its bookmarks Hook is a truly universal, contextual bookmarking app. It enables you to bookmark and bidirectionally link ('hook together') items from almost any app: such as web pages, files, emails, tasks ( OmniFocus, Things, etc.), etc. For instance, you could bring up the Hook ( โŒ˜โ‡งSPACE) popup window on this web page, choose `Copy Link` ( โŒ˜C), and then paste the link anywhere you want. You could then bring up Hook on a document (in Finder, BBEdit, Drafts, Bear or other apps), bring up Hook again (โŒ˜โ‡งSPACE), and `Hook to Copied Link` (โŒ˜V).That would hook them together. Whenever you hook items together (or in 2.0, use `Copy Link` or `add bookmark`), Hook creates bookmarks in its database. This workflow, then, lets you browse and search for any Hook bookmark you like. default keyword: hm The default keyword to access this workflow is 'hm' (short for 'hook bookmark') Usage Example: To find all Hook bookmarks that contain `.pdf`, in Alfred type : `hm .pdf` Dependencies This workflow requires version 1.5 or newer of Hook Essentials or Pro. Hook is available from the Hook productivity website: https://hookproductivity.com . Hook requires macOS 10.12.6 or newer. Hook is currently at version 1.8. Documentation This workflow's homepage on the Hook website is here: Free Alfred Workflows for Controlling Hook. Related automation for Hook Brett Terpstra has published a CLI ( command line interface) that enables you to get and create bookmark. Hook's automation is described on its website : Automation of Hook. Hook is a CogSci Appsยฎ invention for your cognitive productivity ๐Ÿ˜Š.
  17. Hi everyone, Let me introduce evernote workflow that I use. I made this workflow for adding some features that I wanted at first, and I share this with you because I think it would be much better to use it together. You can check it on below repository including demo. Repo: https://github.com/jopemachine/alfred-evernote-workflow And as for how to install, please refer the README.md of above repository. Feature * Fast search using * Preview feature using caching. * You can change your search details. Prerequisite * Evernote Client on macOS (None App-store version) * Node JS How to use ### en Switch to Evernote App. ### en > authtoken { Argument } Argument: {`Your api key`} This command is required only for the initial authentication process. This command save the token value obtained from gettoken to a file. ### en > gettoken This command is required only for the initial authentication process. The command opens Chrome to the Evernote site. When you log in to the site and press the authentication button, `oauthToken` is printed in json format. Pass the value as a argument in the authoken command. ### en > help Open Github link to view README.md. ### en > sync Sync Evernote Client. ### en > savecache Alfred-evernote-workflow use html cache to enable note preview feature. This command save html caches of all of notes from your Evernote client. When the command is running, you are not able to run note searches with the `ens` command. In this case, the `ens` command displays the number of notes that are cached to show you progress. If caching is not done properly for some reason, you can use `en > clearcache` and this command to perform initial caching. After initial caching, the cache will be updated automatically. ### en > clearcache Delete all of your html caches. If you delete all the cache and use the `ens`, you are likely to be caught in the sdk's api call limit. ### en > clearlog Clean all command logs ### entodo Search only for notes that have check boxes. ### encl Adds the text from the clipboard to the Evernote as a new note. ### enclo Adds the text from the clipboard to the Evernote as a new note and Open the note. ### enc { Argument } Argument: {`note content`} Create note by text. ### enct Argument: {`note title to create`} Search tag name and create note by the selected tag and note content if you want. ### enu { Argument } Argument: {`url to search with`} If no argument exist, search for all notes with source URL. Search Notes by url. ### ens { Argument } Argument: {`content to search`} Search the Evernote's notes. If no argument exist, search for the most recent notes (may vary depending on options) To change the search option, see the topic *Options.* * #### *Shift key* + <kbd>Enter</kbd> You can invoke the Quicklook by pressing the shift key for the `ens` search results. Quicklook displays the note in html format. * #### *Fn key* + <kbd>Enter</kbd> You can view the source URL for that note by pressing the Fn key for the search results in theens. And you can open the source URL by chrome by entering the item. If the note does not contain a sourceURL, you will receive an error notification. ### enn { Argument } Argument: {`content to search`} Search the Evernote's notes in your Trash bin. Note that the enter action for this command is to open the cache of the note in the Chrome browser. (Not your Evernote client) ### ent { Argument } Argument: {`tag name`} Search Evernote's tag. You can filter notes by entering on that tag. If no argument exist, search for all tags. If you select the tag, the notes with the tag will be searched. You can search these notes just like the `ens` command. * #### *Command key* + <kbd>Enter</kbd> By pressing the command key and pressing the entry, you can open the window for notes with that tag. ### enr { Argument } Argument: {`content to search`} Search only for notes that have reminder. ### enb { Argument } Argument: {`notebook name`} Search notes by Notebook.

  18. One of my favourite features of Alfred is the ability to do system wide fuzzy search for common file types and applications I use. I've customized Alfred to index file types such as .js, .py, .docx, .xlsx to name a few that I commonly use. I've noticed about 2-3 weeks ago that this fuzzy search feature stopped working. Excel files that I search for that would normally appear stopped appearing. Folders that I normally access will not show up unless I provide the absolute path to the directory. Typing things like "Apple TV" no longer shows the TV app, requiring me to type in exactly "TV" for it to show up. In terms of settings wise, nothing has changed on my end. Is there something I'm missing? What do I need to do to re-enable the previous functionality?
  19. I'm running the latest public Alfred release 4.0.9 [1144] after upgrading from Alfred 3. I reloaded the cache already and have 'macOS Applications' checkbox enabled in the Default Results. However, I still have duplicate results for some applications appearing in the search results. For example, Adobe Lightroom Classic appears both in /Applications and /System/Volumes/Data/Applications, but Arq appears only in /Applications. How do I fix this?
  20. Hello, I'm trying to add Evernote to my search result. I found this: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/evernote/ which mentions two locations to add to my search path. Neither one exists on my mac. rcook@Richs-iMac (~ ): ls ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/ ls: /Users/rcook/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/: No such file or directory rcook@Richs-iMac (~ ): ls ~/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote ls: /Users/rcook/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote: No such file or directory Is there an updated set of instructions available? Thanks in advance for the help! (btw black lives matter)
  21. It's relatively minor, but I notice it given how often I use the built-in Twitter Web Search... but the icon is using the wrong color Tweetie bird!
  22. any chance to get the fuzzy search working in Alfred for the integrated 1Password feature? i try to do everything through Alfred, but the 1Password search is quite painful currently. i could spin up a workflow but probably it'd be better in the integrated version?
  23. I think there're two aspects where Alfred can improve: 1. Allow user to search for content in the files in a specific folder (i.e. before using 'in' function, user can assign a specific folder as the search scope) 2. Allow user to specify the file type for search. For example, search pdf only in a specific folder. I understand that these functions can be implemented by making workflows, but it's hard for non technical person like me to create one. I wish that these would be built-in function or in the sample workflows.

Usage Must run `!update` before using - this will download the completion data from duckduckgo.com After getting the completion data you can use the workflow by either typing `!` into Alfred's search box, or using the system-wide shortcut <Ctrl-!> ## Demo License MIT DuckDuckGo name and logo are trademarks of Duck Duck Go, Inc. https://github.com/dkarter/Bang
  25. I have 2 identical folders, one backup of the other. When I perform a search for files, it returns only files from the second (backup) folder. Is there a way to prioritize search firstly in the original folder and secondly in the backup folder? Thank you!
