I have an AppleScript Script(?) that accepts registration requests by opening up an e-mail and clicking around in a browser. I'd love for this to be able to run without my personal computers requiring an internet connection. Would I be able to set up an Alfred workflow with Zapier to run this script on a cloud computer when gmail receives the registration request? Thanks.
Hi guys, I've recently downloaded Alfred and really like it. I'm trying to create a workflow now and have been struggling with how to go about it. I've tried to lay my problem out below 1) I receive an email from an address that I have saved in a Google sheet. 2) I open up the email and see that they have pasted a link/some text that I need in the email. 3) I want to use a trigger that copies the text I select and adds it to a specific row and column in my Google sheet. I'm using Zapier and feel comfortable with setting up Zaps with Alfred. However, my issue comes when matching the email I'm on with the correct row and column in the spreadsheet. In my spreadsheet, I have the recipients email address and even the message thread URL. So I could use these as a unique modifier quite easily. I'm just not sure how to set it up so that I have these bits of data to use in my zap. Any guidance on this would be very much appreciated. Thanks everyone. - Mike
tl;dr: A new Alfred workflow to launch Zapier workflows from your keyboard. Ever wanted a quicker way to add data to your web apps? Say you get an email from a potential customer, and you want to add them as a new lead to your CRM. You have to copy their email address, open your CRM app in your browser, find your Lead page, open the Add Lead page, and finally paste in the info. Or if you wanted to find more details about a contact—perhaps to see what products they've bought from your store, or their last email to your support team, or the notes you wrote about your last call with them—you'd need to open a handful of other apps and search in each one manually. Personally, I wanted a simpler way to send template emails. I wanted to enter a contact's name in Alfred and have it find details about the contact in address book, then make a new draft email to them. That's why I made this Zapier for Alfred workflow. Zapier's to web apps what Alfred is to your Mac—it connects 750+ web apps (including Evernote, Salesforce, Shopify, Gmail, PayPal, and much more) so you can build workflows and automate tasks. And with Zapier for Alfred, you can start those workflows from your Mac's keyboard. Everyone will have a different use case, but the core workflow works the same. You'll make a Zapier workflow, and connect it to your Zapier for Alfred workflow in Alfred. Then, to run it, you'll enter some text into Alfred, and this workflow will send it to your Zap to kick off the online workflow you made. Then you can get the results back to your Mac in a Pushbullet notification, email, Dropbox file, or even an SMS message in Messages.
