[SOLVED] Workflow for browsing a specific folder in Alfred?


Recommended Posts

I want to browse a specific folder in Alfred, sorted by date, triggered by a simple keyword. (I have a screenshots folder that I want to be accessible in Alfred so that I can drag a screenshot into a document.)

 

Can someone point me in the right direction? I've made some early stabs at it in the Workflow editor but I'm hopeless.

 

Thanks.

Thanks so much for this. Where is the Workflow Environment Variable located?

 

On a side note, I don't understand why such a complex workflow has to be built when all I need to do is browse a specific folder within Alfred. I can do it manually but it would be nice to have a quicker one triggered by a keyword.

Click the [𝑥] in the top right. You’ll see it on the right of the panel that opens.

It doesn’t. It’s not particularly complex, either, it’s just versatile: it has four different sorting methods and can do different things to the files, but in practice you’re only going to use one (that’s what I do). Either rdn or rda, in your case.
