How to enable a workflow from Alfred search bar?

Recommended Posts

I have a workflow to create a direct link of a share link of Dropbox from clipboard. For example, the normal Dropbox sharable link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/abcxzy/filename.txt?dl=0. I build a workflow to quickly change it to a direct link as https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/abcxzy/filename.txt?dl=0. Just a quick explanation for my purpose.


Now I'm using a hot key to trigger the workflow but I want to call it from Alfred search result. For instance, I want to set the keyword `dbdirectlink` for this workflow. Then I toggle Alfred and type this keyword, one of results should include the workflow. I can start it by pressing Enter. 


I'm a newbie. Do you have any ideas?

Thank you

Go to your workflow, add on that workflow page a Keyword trigger (from "Inputs"), add your keyword to it and then link that trigger to the remainder of the workflow after your hotkey. You can then use both the hotkey and the keyword to trigger the workflow.
