Hi, this is my first time with workflows. I can launch the workflow, get the lists eg inbox, today etc. but I cannot work out 

how to create a new todo item in any of the lists. I would welcome any advice

 

Regards Anteric

 

Welcome to Alfred community.

 

You can learn how to operate the workflow by holding the action modifiers keys and reading the item subtitles. In order to create a to-do just select the target list and use + .

This action not work with Russian language ?:

 

 

Info from debug:

 

Starting debug for 'Things'

[2018-05-02 13:38:10][ERROR: action.script] 0:82: execution error: Получена ошибка от «Things3»: Не удается получить list "–Т—Е–Њ–і—П—Й–Є–µ" of application "Things3". (-1728)

I think problem with russian Inbox translating and russian project names.

Did it worked for you before or you've just tried the workflow for the first time?

If the keyword todo is not working for you, please paste here what you get in the debug console after typing it.

 

The keyword isn't working for me; here's the debug output:

[2018-11-06 14:46:04][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument '(null)'
[2018-11-06 14:46:04][input.scriptfilter] Script with argument '(null)' finished
[2018-11-06 14:46:04][ERROR: input.scriptfilter] Code 1: 0:61: execution error: Not authorised to send Apple events to Things3. (-1743)

It used to work at one point, but that was quite a while ago (I've simply not got around to looking deeper into the issue until now).

Thank you for this!

 

Is it possible to use the workflow to send you to Things, specifically showing you the Today view of a specific tag?  For example, I use tags to break up my life by 'Work', 'Family and Friends' and 'Personal'.  So, it'd be great if I could call the workflow to put me in a specific view within Things.

I will look into implementing such feature. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hello - just installed the Workflow, works great! Thank you.

 

Question: Is it possible to perform a search for tasks in Things 3 via Alfred? I'd like to type in:

 

todo "searchstring" and then either open Things3 and display the search, or see the options inside Alfred already as a dropdown and enter to open task.

Would that be possible at all? 

 

Thanks!

I just installed this and it seems really buggy that it's not usable. Not sure if perhaps there is an issue with Catalina?

 

My Inbox currently has 45 items in it and they don't show up with this workflow. Most of the other sections are blank as well but sometimes an Area will take a few seconds and then populates with Projects and items. Pressing enter on a Project focuses it in Things instead of showing the items within in in the workflow (I believe the docs indicate that that they should show in Alfred), or at least opening the project in Things.

 

Looks like it could be useful if it worked and was fast.
