"Post notification": upstream variables.


Recommended Posts

As I was trying to add a post notification to one of my workflows and failed, I decided to take a closer look at how post notification action works.

 

Documentation on Alfred's website didn't help as I am too stupid to understand what the three lines from "The title" to "content" do mean. I do get the post notification get the output of another action but that's it :)

I do not get the notion of "upstream variables". Plus, I do not see how to substitute them into the output with {var:varname}?  

 

Can anyone explain it to me please? I am completely lost. 

 

Thank you!

You've heard of workflow variables? Those. Passed into the notification.

The same way as {query}. You write {var:SOME_VARIABLE} in the text field, e.g. Title = “{var:THING_NAME} was {var:THING_ADDED}”, Text = “You now have {var:THING_COUNT} {var:THING_NAME}”
