Workflow for Outlook V16 Search


Recommended Posts

Thanks for a great workflow @xeric, it improves my workday a lot! 

It's nice how the search results open in the current space without activating the Outlook app first, and thereby avoiding potentially switching space in order to focus it.

 

Would it be possible to implement the same behaviour for composing new messages using olknew? I.e. opening a new message in the current space without activating/focusing the base Outlook app.

 

Cheers, M

I have Outlook for Mac version 16.56.  The workflow opens up the search (shortcut olk) of the emails correctly, but will not open them.  It only brings the Outlook app up, not the individual email.  It also doesn't seem to find any of the current emails in my Inbox.  

 

Mac 11.6.1

are you using the 'New Outlook'? If so, try to turn it off, Applescript is not supported (it sounds like it will be at some point) and the parts of the workflow relying on Applescript are not working. 

Also, your debug file is huge and mostly containing your personal email, you might want to delete if the problem is resolved.

Thank you.  I turned it off and it seems to be doing a much better job of searching and opening the actual emails.  

 

*I deleted the file.

New to the forum. Had the same issue with "New Outlook" .... searched and identified the email - "New Outlook" doesn't bring up the message but legacy outlook does. Which is a pity as I like the New Outlook better. Using 16.57 Outlook version on Mac with 12.2.1.

 

I am not using workflows - can someone point me to the workflow being discussed here? thank you
