Let workflows use one another

Basically what the title says.

I'm not 100% sure myself if, or how this might be useful to anyone, but I figured I'd at least throw it out there in case somebody might have a good use to it.

 

It'll work in a manner similar to passing a query from one action to the other on a single workflow, but you could set an action to use another (chosen) workflow(s) with the given {query}.

 

This could be utilised, for example in Andrew's "Should I watch this movie?" workflow, where you could just pass the query to three different workflows. This way the user could utilize the use of the workflow further.

 

P.S

This could cause some headache and redundancy I presume, since workflows might count on one another, they'll need to install more workflows to work, so something like dependencies in apt-get might be needed (if anyone knows how it works basically, they have a great system for checking for dependencies when installing packages).

Things like this have been noted as potential features in the future. For now, you could fake things like this by naming the second step (keyword) and then using AppleScript in the last piece of the first step to make Alfred show again with the keyword and whatever arguments already populated.

 

Let me know if you have any questions on how to do this.

 

Thanks

Thanks. I currently don't have any use for this feature myself, as I wrote above. I just thought it might be better to write it down here in case someone had an idea oh how to leverage such a feature in their workflow(s). If I'll have an idea that might need this I'll be sure to ask you how to do this though, thanks again.
