politicus Posted May 21, 2014 Share Posted May 21, 2014 I've been trying to reorganize my 200 workflows these last weeks. I wanted to be able to find them as fast as possible. Adding a category to each of them, while helpful was not always "working". I sometimes have 15 workflows in one category, so I can't filter them only using the search bar. So, I decided to group them (i.e. putting all the workflows that let me launch a website into a "simple workflow"). I found it was way more effective because I had less results when I was searching for one workflow. The problem I still have is that for example for my website launchers (= open this url in the default browser actions) workflows, it can become quite a mess quite fast. For example, when you have 26 little workflows you want to add one new little action to the 13th workflow -> you have to reorganize the 14th, 15th, 16th ..., 26th workflows. Or, you'll get this: One solution would be able to be able to put these workflows in little"modules". Think about the way actions are displayed in Automator. You can drag them, close one by clicking on a cross. But the most important, they act as block. For a basic pinky (ugly?) proof of concept made in less than a minute in Skitch: That way, one could add actions to one workflow without having to reorganize all of them. What do you think ?
