  1. 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 afterwards. Requires Alfred 3. Download from Github. Download from Packal.
  2. Hi, Does someone have an opinion to help to fix those contacts displayed 2, 3, 4 times as shown on the screenshot thank you
  3. Here is the relevant information. What you were doing when the issue happened: I typed some words that are parts of the contacts shown wrongly. For instance, I typed 'mus', Alfred showed two duplicated contacts 'Mustafa XXX'. Note that these contacts do not exist at all when I open the Apple's Contact.app but, per suggested about how-to report bug, I reported in a seperate thread. Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action : YES. Include any screenshots that might help us Include the Alfred version & build number you are using: Alfred 3.4.1, Build 860, Friday 21st July 2017 Include your OS X version: macOS Sierra 10.12.6
  4. 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!
  5. Hi I'm new on here but have used alfred for a few years now. I notice I spend a lot of time opening Mail.app and searching for a particular contact so I can see all emails to/from. I have tried tinkering with workflows, but for the life of me cannot seem to get a grip on how it all works (*I am in awe of people who make such excellent ones). Can someone help make a workflow that does this: Finds contact > Opens mail app > inputs contact name into the search box. I will be your Alfred-BFF-4ever, and think of you kindly every time I do a mail search. :-) Thanks. -G
  6. Hi, I love Alfred's built-in contact viewer, and I use it all the time. However, I've noticed that phone numbers are always displayed as how they were originally typed into the contact viewer. For example, if I type a create a new contact and add a phone number with no separators (e.g. 1234567890), the phone number would display exactly as such when viewing the respective contact in Alfred. I would much prefer that phone numbers within Alfred's contact viewer be consistently formatted. I would much prefer a format such as 123-456-7890, though perhaps a menu of options to choose from would be a much better approach. Is this feasible to add? Thanks, Caleb
  7. Hi, how about making a FaceTime Call directly from the Alfred Contact Window?
  8. Route to contact or location This workflow calculates the route from the current location to a contact from your address book, or a specified location with Google Maps. The scripts are written in python and use the pre-installed objective-c bridge pyobjc to search the address book and determine the current location with CoreLocation. Because of this, OS X will display messages that ask for the permission to use CoreLocation and AddressBook. Requirements: The scripts use the shipped python version and the nice alfred module by nikipore (included). Because of the usage of OS X APIs there are requirements for the OS X version. I developed and tested the workflow on 10.8.4, 10.9.0 and 10.9.1, but perhaps older versions are also working (feedback?). Usage: Simply type "route" followed by the first or last name of a contact and choose the right one from the list. You can also just type an address to which you want the route to be calculated. Download: You can download the workflow from Packal https://github.com/abyth/alfred-route-contact-workflow Feel free to submit error reports or feature requests Important!: After implementing new features, the workflow title was sufficient anymore. You can find the new version here in the forum History 1.1Fixed index bugs regarding multiple addresses per contact 1.0Initial release
  9. Quick little Contact Action workflow that will allow you to select a contact's address in the Alfred Contact Viewer and see that address in the Apple Maps app. Download You will have to add the custom action. Use the screenshots below to guide you through setting up the contact action.. After the action is set up.. when viewing a contact in the Alfred Contact Viewer, you should be able to select the Contact's address and view it in the Apple Maps application.
  10. I asked this question in the Workflow Help & Questions forum (http://www.alfredforum.com/forum/13-workflow-help-questions/), but I believe I need even more basic assistance. Currently, Alfred is able to email a specific contact, but I would like also to be able to message a specific contact via the Messages app. If I start typing the name of a contact, Alfred recognizes that contact -- and can even open it, but from there I can't get it to message the person. I've tried various workflows to try to address this. I know how to launch the Messages app, but I can't figure out how to get it to start a new message to a specific contact. I can't make heads or tails out of the "Contact Action" trigger, and I'm not even sure that a Contact Action trigger would help me with this workflow. I realize that this seems very basic, so I feel quite silly. I would appreciate any help or ideas.
