If you regularly need to set the same files or directory structures somewhere, say a set of prebuilt scripts and template files for certain types of regular projects, this workflow is meant to make your life easier. It can take files, directory structures, and even URLs, and set them up as templates that’ll be copied over to your frontmost Finder window (if you’re using Path Finder, it will be used instead). Files and directory structures will be copied, and urls will be downloaded when requested (so you always get the latest version). To keep your templates synced between machines, use the `lists_dir` Workflow Environment Variable to pick a custom save location. If you have a template that consists of a directory, you can place inside it an executable script with the name starting as _templatesmanagerscript. (the extension will be your pick), to be executed automatically after copying. It has a lot of options and you’ll likely use most of them, so I’ll fire through them succinctly: Add to TemplatesManager [File Action] — Add a file or directory to your local templates. tml (TemplatesManagerList) [Script Filter] — Show a list of your local templates. Type to sort with your query. Press ↵ to copy the selected one to your frontmost Finder window. tml (with ⌘) — If the selected template is a directory, instead of copying the directory itself, copy what’s inside it. tml (with ⌥) — Delete your template. tme (TemplatesManagerEdit) [Keyword] — Open the templates directory so you can add, remove, and edit them manually. rtml (RemoteTemplatesManagerList) [Script Filter] — Show a list of your remote templates (download name and url). Type to sort with your query. Press ↵ on the selected one to download the file to your frontmost Finder window. rtml (with ⌘) — Paste contents of template file, instead of downloading it. rtml (with ⌥) — Remove the url from your remote templates list. rtme (RemoteTemplatesManagerEdit) [Keyword] — Open the remote templates urls file in a text editor so you can add, remove, and edit them manually. rtma (RemoteTemplatesManagerAdd) [Keyword] — takes the URL in your clipboard and adds it to your remote templates list.

It would be great when you say that "we have over a dozen examples and over 40 templates" (or words to that effect) if you appended that webpage (Alfred Blog > Tips and Tricks > Learn to Create Workflows with Alfred's Built-In Examples) with a follow-on webpage and link with a list of those examples and templates that you speak of, serving as a repository for us to go to for a one stop place to download from.
I just added workflow snippets to my Time Stamp Workflow and noticed that I had never shared it. So, here it is. You can use "ts:stamp" to list the pre-defined date/time stamp format and paste the current date/time into the top application. Or, you can use the "ts:build" to build your own date/time stamp to add to the list. I also have several predefined snippets: ;tsl = the current date/time using the last select date/time stamp. ;ed = the current date/time in the mm/dd/yyyy format. ;dow = the current day of the week. ;nsu - the next Sunday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nmo - the next Monday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;ntu - the next Tuesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nwe - the next Wednesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nth - the next Thursday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nfr - the next Friday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nsa - the next Saturday date using the last select date/time stamp.
