Dynamic (using variable) "Search Scope" for "File Filter"

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Here's what I'd like to achieve:

 

-Invoke Alfred to select a root folder

-Once chosen, select a first folder within this root folder, then a second folder

-Once both folders are selected, use a comparison tool to compare folders.

 

This is the workflow:

However, we can't use variables in Search Scope, we can only drop folders in it.

Do you see any clever way to do this without enhancing Alfred to support more dynamic Search Scope?

 

Thanks

Yes, you can. That's what the JSON Config utility is for. See the "Dynamic File Search" example workflow included with Alfred.

 

Moving this to the "Workflow Help & Questions" forum, as the requested feature already exists (if I've correctly understood what you want to do).
