combine different workflows together


Recommended Posts

I checked a bunch of similar questions but so far have not find an answer to that.

 

Usecase: I want to build an e-mail that has differents variable parts in it that get used elsewhere too. I my idea was to make it modular: define the modules as workflows (as they have interactive variables in them) and chain them together in one bigger mail workflow that calls the modules and put all outputs together.

 

I defined external triggers for the modules but can't find a way to call them appropriately and afterwards save the outputs as a variable I can use. (The external trigger output would end the flow and I can't get the apple script variant to work).

 

Can anyone help out?

External Triggers don't return anything. If you want to get information from another workflow, you need it to "call you back" with the info (or dump it to a file).

 

My Firefox workflow supports this, for example. You call its External Trigger with the name of another External Trigger it should pass the info to.
