Hi all,

I often track numeric values (e.g. weight, hours worked), or strings (e.g. food items etc), in a spreadsheet or Evernote, often multiple times a day. 

 

It would be great to use alfred to quickly do that.

A great workflow would have a [keyword] [value] syntax, so that a [value] (plus maybe a timestamp) would be appended to a google spreadsheet (or Evernote note) specified by [keyword].

 

For example, entering "hours 5" in Alfred would result in appending the value 5 and corresponding timestamp to a google spreadsheet named "Hours Worked". 

 

Has anybody thought of something like that?

 

Thanks!

Giovanni

If you have a local copy of the spreadsheet & it's formatted as a CSV, this can be done with a single line bash script (this is why I put this kind of stuff in Dropbox....).  If you need to call an Evernote or Google Docs API &/or use a proprietary spreadsheet format it gets more complicated b/c you need to authenticate etc.

 

Take a look at doing: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/974-doingtxt-a-time-tracking-workflow/
