Thank you, this is handy! Would it be possible to support custom date strings as shown in the results (“Added: date”)? Personally I would prefer the form YYYY-MM-DD. I realize that this can be done in the Python code, but it would be convenient if date formatting could be changed by e.g. a workflow variable or another easy way that does not require the users to tinker with the Python code.

Done....date string can now be formatted in WF settings

 

Wow, that was a really fast update! It works perfect and is very convenient to change the format in the WF settings, thank you very much!

I noticed that the results when invoking this workflow does not behave as ordinary Alfred results, e.g. result items (files) cannot be dragged to be copied to a folder and I cannot access File Actions as usual by pressing right arrow. This limits the usefulness somewhat. Is it possible to get the result items behave as standard? I'm on macOS 10.14.2 and Alfred 3.7.1.
