Workflow to perform query in FileMaker

Recommended Posts

I would like to use Alfred to query a FileMaker solution. I have a script in FileMaker that executes a query based on the contents of the Clipboard. And I have assigned the ⌘-1 keystroke as the trigger. Here is the procedure that I'm trying to build.


- Invoke Alfred.
- Enter "fm " to tell Alfred that this is a FileMaker query.
- Enter the search string.
- Press Return.


Alfred would then


- Copy the string to the Clipboard.
- Activate Organizer.fmp12.
- Wait until Organizer.fmp12 is frontmost.
- Perform the ⌘-1 keystroke (which will cause FileMaker to perform the query).

I have created a workflow that recognizes the keyword and copies the search string to the Clipboard. But I don't know how to proceed. Any help would be appreciated.

macOS 10.13.6
Alfred 3.7
