  1. Is there a way of setting up Alfred so that when I do a search for a contact using Alfred, that I can actually open the contact in the Contacts app? It currently give me the option to open it in Alfred, but I'd like the option to open the contact in the actual Contacts app. Thank you in advance! -Jim
  2. I was unhappy with the Alfred support for Continuity/Handoff calling via iPhone so I created this. It integrates with contacts. Use commands call [contact name or arbitrary number] and sms [contact name or arbitrary number] to make it work. 'im' is an alias of 'sms'. New in version 2 Faster than before Supports entering in numeric numbers also Now has primitive error checking. You should see the Facetime application pop up less. More hack-able FIXED: If Contacts isn't open when the command is invoked it will now close itself afterward
  3. 2015-07-29: Version 2 released MailTo: Select multiple Contacts and/or Groups, and compose in your favourite email app Search your Contacts and compose an email to one or more recipients (or none) in your preferred email program. Also supports Groups. The main aim—versus Alfred's built-in, more comprehensive contact handling—is to make it fast and easy to select multiple recipients and especially groups. Features Search and add recipients from your Contacts database Send to Groups/Distribution Lists (they're the same thing) Also enter email addresses by hand Use any email client you
  4. Hi ! I've looked through the forum and there's a lot about displaying contacts, but unfortunately I'm not sure it answers my question: I would like to search only in contacts but in any field of contact cards. I specify in all my contacts their skills (I work with a lot of Freelancers). Currently I use Alfred2 with contact and it works if I type 3 letters of a first or last name, but not if I type 'Motion' to find a motion designer whose name I can't recall. Can you help me, please
  5. It looks like there might be a bug impacting file filter searches for AddressBook files in Alfred 4. I’ve used this file filter since I started using Alfred, and just noticed that it no longer works in Alfred 4. In the screenshot below, you’ll find its settings: Side Note: I’ve always preferred using a file filter (keyword, more specifically) when searching for contacts because I don’t like seeing them in Alfred’s default or file search modes. To be clear, if I go back to Alfred 4’s settings - either its default or file searc
  6. Hey! My workflow parses query result from web request to internal database of employees to quickly find the right person. Thing is I want to output person like a contact - to quickly compose mail or message or call that person, based on retrieved info. 1. So I get query result from api, Like this: 2. Then when I press enter on the right result I want to get full contact info (same as default contacts search in alfred) Like this: Script Search filter only allow to specify file or default in json. What can I
  7. Contacts Feature: I would like to copy both the person's name AND their address from Contacts. Currently you have the option to copy the person's name to the Clipboard and another option to copy the address to the Clipboard, but not both... I cannot seem to get the Clipboard merge to work to combine both the name and address, but even if I got that to work, I'm having to re-initiate Alfred a second time which is cumbersome. Thanks! Love Alfred 2.0! Stan
  8. Hi smart people, When I search and find contact in Alfred (v3.7), it launches Contacts instead of showing it in Alfred like it used to. I'm running 10.14.1 (Mojave), and have Accessibility, Contacts and Full Disk Access checked/allowed in Privacy under Security & Privacy. Within Alfred, "Open Contacts in Alfred" is checked under Contacts and Default Results. Any help in resolving this will be appreciated! Thanks!
  9. Hi guys, is there any way to only search for contacts if you for instance type "c" first (or any prefix). Like "c john smith" would give me the contact viewer with john smith, while just "john smith" would simply launch the browser/search engine? (I don't want to enable "contacts" in default search results, because it would clog up the results, but I would also like the built-in contacts handlers).
  10. Is it possible to configure Alfred to always use Google Contacts when searching Contacts? As a heavy Google user, currently I have to export from Google Contacts to Apple Contacts app to ensure Alfred recognizes my contacts. I'm curious if there's a workaround. Thanks for any and all help!
  11. Why alfred is keep asking for contacts access with every boot? Also, when you say okay, it is still now able to search contacts. I have checked all security and privacy preference and alfred feature checkbox and regular check points. Still same issue. i also downloaed the version directly from alfred website. any suggestion?
  12. How do I set up a workflow to choose a specific contact in Contacts and send that person a message via the Messages app? (Akin to how Alfred allows a user to email a specific contact.) I started a new workflow that launches the Messages app, and I tried to add a Contact Action, but that doesn't exactly work: Contact Action comes before, rather than after, Messages -- and I want Messages to start first and enable a specific contact to be used as the input. I welcome advice and suggestions. Thanks!
  13. Hello I'm a new advanced user on alfred with powerpack. I use also contact module. A missing feature would be to be able to find in contact details. Some use cases : * looking for identity on a missing call : I can not look for a contact from its phone number * looking for a company contact, when I've forgotten his name * looking for a note : I look for a contact from a keyword stored in contact notes Would be great if it would be available, in particular linked with Google Contacts. We can find this feature, for example,
  14. As the title says, every time I start my computer or Alfred, it keeps asking for accessing to Contacts: AFAIK, this box should only pop up the first time Alfred starts. Can anyone figure out what happened? Thanks,
  15. I love contacts preview and the fact that I can search for a person through Alfred and get a quick glance over where the person lives, what his social media accounts are, his website and notes I made. The only thing I wish if Alfred was more intelligent about these links. For example here is my Contact card : I can make actionable urls and that is great but I just wish that clicking on the twitter handle of the contact would bring up TweetBot with that profile name, if user has no Twitter Client, than a webpage opens. I use this to open url links in Tweet
  16. Hi, I'm on OS X 10.10.5 and Alfred is on v2.8.3. I've noticed that Alfred doesn't search Contacts with an accent-insensitive collation like Spotlight does. I have a contact entered as "Rob Muñoz". Using Spotlight, I can search with "Munoz" and he will come up. Alfred won't do the same. Now the interesting thing is Alfred's folders and files search logic does seem to use an accent-insensitive collation. After creating two folders named "TestFolder" and "TestFölder", both will show up in a "show" or "open" search when using the terms "folder" or "földer". So, it seems the iss
  17. We could use an AppleScript like this for Chrome. I modified this simple script: https://github.com/mobjack/MacChromeCalendarFocus Still having a little trouble focusing the correct window. If anyone can help on that please let me know what's missing: tell application "Google Chrome" repeat with w in windows set i to 1 repeat with t in tabs of w if URL of t starts with "https://inbox.google.com/" then set active tab index of w to i set index of w to 1 tell application "Google Chrome" to activate tell application "System Events" keystroke "c" end tell re
  18. Alfred 2.8.3 (433) / OS X 10.11.2 As noted in this thread, Alfred doesn't find contacts from Google accounts in normal (non-Spotlight-metadata) mode. I've confirmed it with my own Google account. It appears to be an issue with Alfred, as my MailTo workflow, which uses the AddressBook API, finds 'em just fine. Spotlight metadata mode works just fine with Google contacts.
  19. I can see in the Preferences that I can set another app to open a contact, other than Apple 'Contacts'. But I don't know how! The URL Handler field in Contacts preferences shows "addressbook://{uid}" I want to open contacts in BusyContacts, but I have discovered that I don't just put "BusyContacts" where the field has {uid}. So what do I do? Thanks, Kevan
  20. Hello, since Apple has removed the Pages.app function to fill out placeholders by drag'n'drop a contact-card from Address-Book.app, I wonder if anyone has created a workflow to substitute this kind of function. I will try to describe the workflow by giving it the name "Contact to Pages" Workflow 1. Setup placeholders in Pages e.g. "city": - in Pages select a word and go to Menu -> Format -> Advanced -> Define as placeholder text - now switch to the right panel -> More and remane the Script Tag "None" to "city" 2. Fire "Contact to Pages" workflow in Alfred which will pro
  21. HI Sending an email doesn't seem to work. The search element works fine, but when I hit return on a contact it switches to my mail app and doesn't open a new email. This happens if I hit return on starting a blank email or if I have found a contact with Alfred and hit return. In both instances mail becomes the active app, but nothing happens, no new mail is started. I'm on the latest version of Alfred. I'm using Yosemite 10.10.3 (14D136), and Mac Mail Version 8.2 (2098) as my default mail client. thanks
  22. I have Alfred 2.7.1. I do not have the Powerpack. I have two contacts apps on my mac, the standard Apple Contacts and a product called BusyContacts. When I use Alfred to search for a contact, e.g. Joe Smith, and then I hit enter on it from the search results list, Alfred always launches BusyContacts, rather than contacts. The default app for VCF files is Contacts, not BusyContacts. If I have a .VCF file and double click on it, it launches Contacts, not BusyContacts. If I right click on the VCF file, it shows Contacts as the default app. Yet, Alfred launches BusyContacts. How to
  23. I'd love the ability to create an email to multiple contacts. Is there a way we could have something like the file buffer for email addresses and then place all of them in the "to:" field?
  24. Is there anyway to change the command-o option from using the Mac Contacts App? I'm using another app (BusyContacts) as my primary contact app and would like to launch it if I seach for a person and want to "Open in Contacts".
  25. I am trying to figure out how to link a contact lookup in Alfred to Keypad http://www.getkeypad.co/home.html so that I can open alfred, type Fred, have Fred Randerson's contact #s come up, select one and have it pass that # to Keypad to dial. Can anyone help? Thanks!
