Script to search contact based on name and copy all fields to the clipboard as plain text

Recommended Posts

Ideally Alfred would work just like LauchBar and let me copy multiple contact fields. I work in an industry where I have to share contact info all the time as plain text and LaunchBar is the only app I've found that can do what I want.


I'm trying to create a workflow that's attached to the Custom Action of the Name field. I select the name and hit Enter and the script will use the name to search my contacts and copy all the fields to the clipboard as plain text. I have very little knowledge of how to do this so I got stuck very quick. There's an action in Automator to do this but you need to pass it the actual ID of the contact which I have no idea how to get.


Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
