Simple Messages workflow?


Recommended Posts

I've found several older mac messages workflows, but they don't seem to work very well. Is there a simple way to just call up Mac Messenger, write in a name from contacts and have that open the messages app with the contact already selected? Similar to the automatic send an email to a particular contact?

It's already possible to call any API from Alfred. Whether Alfred will be able to call Shortcuts depends on Shortcuts more than Alfred.

Shortcuts will have a command line tool and be scriptable via AppleScript, so there’s nothing that Alfred needs to do to integrate with it.

Realistically, how many contacts do you want to do that for? You could set them up yourself in a List Filter Input, then open sms:<contact_phone_number_OR_imessage_email>&body=<url_encoded_message>. That’ll open the message to the correct person with your prepopulated message. Example: sms:+46771793336&body=Hello%20random%20Swede!&.

 

Tip: Always end the body with a &, to keep the punctuation marks.
