Can I directly resolve a URL from a snippet in my browser?

Recommended Posts

I use snippets very heavily at work to store commonly used URLs and phrases that I include in emails, slack, etc. I share a collection with coworkers of our most commonly used links.

 

One of the tools I use, Docsend allows me to generate custom links that have tracking embedded. They don't have an API so I need to create the link through my web browser every time. I'd like to have a collection of our most commonly used items in Docsend so a snippet collection is perfect, but I'm looking for a way to automatically open the link in the browser. Sort of like holding down the control key when clicking enter, but I'd like it to resolve the URL from my snippet.

 

Is there any way to do this or something similar? I know I can use a lot of custom web searches, but this wouldn't be something I can share with my larger team.

What do you mean? You want to type the snippet somewhere and the URL opens in your browser?

The ideal would be for me to open the snippet viewer using Cmd-Option-C, find the snippet I want and then hold down a modifier key to open in browser. I don't believe that's possible so trying to figure out what the closest/most convenient/fastest option would be.

Put your URLs in a List Filter?

 

I'm sorry, it's not really clear what you're trying to do. Why can't you type the snippet in your browser or Alfred to open the URL?
