I didn't see a way to run workflows from the iOS app.  Did I miss something?  If not is this something that is being considered?   I think this would be the real power to be able to run a multi step workflow.

There is a new Remote Trigger object you can add to your workflow which is then available from the [+] button when adding items for a remote page.

 

You can even setup whole remote pages within a workflow which are exported with the workflow itself if you were to share it.

We have some screencasts coming in the next month which will show you how to get the most from Alfred Remote :)

 

Cheers,

After I added a remote trigger and creating a new page I was able to add a button to run my workflow.  However I'm not quite sure what remote pages are.   I tried to add my workflow by clicking the "+" on the remote tab I see the message "No workflows currently contain remote pages".  I guess the "+" is to create pages on not add individual workflows.

 

Hopefully you can talk about what remote pages are.

Hey Andrew, on a related note I feel that the contextual menu for Run Workflow Trigger in the Remote section of Alfred Preferences could get quite cluttered. By the time I have 50 workflows all offering remote triggers things are going to get quite out of hand! Before I updated to 2.6 I was kind of expecting some sort of drag and drop interface.

Just some random ramblings :)
