[SOLVED] Simple 'Open a File' workflow

Recommended Posts

I'm just trying to create a simple workflow that will open a template when I type in the word 'sphere''.

Thought I had it figured out but when I type it into Alfred, nothing happens.

Here are some screenshots of the main workflow modules and when I open them up.

I'm trying to open a template that's specific to the application Reaper

Thanks for any input here.

When asking for help with a Workflow, please upload it somewhere as we can’t properly help you without access to it. Debugging can already be hard with access to the code, and you’re asking us to guess yours from a description. There are multiple places where your code or Workflow setup may be going wrong. Without looking at it we’re shooting in the dark.


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

 

But why are you using a File Filter and a Launch Apps / Files if you’re always opening the same file in the same application? Just connect a Keyword Action to the Open File.

Vitor,

Thanks so much for getting back to me.  I did some more digging on the Alfred website and found my answer here: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/start-your-day-workflow/

I just built that workflow and modified as I went along. Done!

Sorry for the 'newb' question.  I've actually been using Alfred a while but am just now trying to get into some more intricate uses with it.

Side question: Are there video tutorials?

Thanks again

Not officially. But the written documentation is top notch.
