Help: Reminders Workflow: After workflow shortcut defaults to google

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I tried searching for a solution to this issue. It seems like the type of thing people would talk about since it's happened to me in a few workflows and seems like a common thing I run into, but I'm not quite sure how to describe the problem. So when using this wokflow http://www.packal.org/workflow/reminders alfred always defaults to google search when I try to use it. I call up Alfred using my shortcut, then I type "ra" and the add to reminders workflow does show up (see screenshot), but as soon as I navigate to it and press enter it defaults to a search. Same thing happens if I type out the whole thing then press space.

Any ideas what may be happening? Is this an older workflow that needs to be updated or am I doing something wrong? Are there any threads that might be helpful? I'd appreciate any help.

I'm on macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (not sure if this helps)

When making a request or a bug report pertaining to a specific workflow, please do not open a new thread to discuss your issue.

Making a new thread, while it seems like it’ll give your problem visibility, will only fragment the discussion and make it less likely the author and users of the workflow (the people that can actually help) will see it.

Please read the Reporting Problems with Workflows topic, as it gives a nice overview on how to make a report with a better chance of being addressed.

@psicologo First, check which workflow version you're using.


You can grab the latest one from the link @vitor provided, or from Github:



I don't believe @surrealroad is maintaining the Packal version any longer, so that thread is your best starting point. I'm using the latest version of the workflow and it seems to be working fine :)
