List filter: diplay titles and subtitles variables

Recommended Posts

List filter is a feature I discovered recently. I use this type of workflow to create “DAT worflows". DAT stands for "direct access to". I use it as a faster way to access the page of a web application. What does such a workflow do? In Alfred search bar, I type a keyword, then the item list "Title" variable I have set in Alfred, hit enter and boom the webpage I wanted to go to, appears by magic in my default browser. Here are my workflow settings:

My question is there a way Alfred shows the item filters "Title" and "Subtitle" variables as it does in a "File filter" action?  For example:

For now, I have to type the workflow keyword + the "Title" variable of the list item.For example with my Gmail workflow:

I would like to have the "Title" and the "Subtitle" variables of any item of the list suggested to me in Alfred's results before I type the "Title" variable.

 

Thank you.

Top left. Change “Argument Required” to “Argument Optional” and it’ll work.

 

For future reference, when you need help with a Workflow you’re building, you should always upload it somewhere and include the link. Debugging can already be hard with access to the code; doing so with only screenshots and descriptions is way harder.


See the Reporting Problems with Workflows topic, as it gives a nice overview on how to build an effective report.
