New Outlook version 15.6 150113 - (Office 365)

Recommended Posts

I am trying to modify the Outlook workflows posted here to work with the new version of Outlook. I added the new data path to the search scope (Users ▸ brad ▸ Library ▸ Group Containers ▸ UBF8T346G9.Office ▸ Outlook ▸ Outlook 15 Profiles ▸ Main Profile ▸ Data) but it does seem to find anything no matter what I search for.

 

Spotlight finds things without any problems when I use the search parameter "kMDItemTitle", which is what I want, to be able to search for a subject string. 

 

Anyone have any ideas? This is the only thing keeping me from moving away from Mail.app for good (the Exchange attachments bug is killing me).

I don't have access to the latest version of Outlook but just taking a glance at the workflow you mentioned, it looks like there may be one other thing to change. Without being able to see the structure, I can't confirm that this will fix it but, let try this..

 

In the workflow, it also specified a file type. The workflow specified a com.microsoft.outlook14.message file type. Try navigating to the area that you know the data resides and find a file that you can confirm is an outlook message. Remove the current file type in the workflow, then drag one of the files that you believe to be a message into the file types box. It COULD be that it was attempting to filter on an outdated file type.  As mentioned, this is just a guess. Let me know back how this works please.

That was indeed where the problem was, David. I actually gave up and created my own from a template just before you posted this and figured out that was where the problem was. I admit I did not realize it was this easy to create your own workflows. I have made a few with Applescripts now and am really seeing how much use I can get out of Alfred...very exciting.

 

Thanks for the reply, David!

Could you share your workflow? Coincidentally, another user contacted us asking about this kind of workflow today, so it'd be great to share it with them too :)

 

Great to hear you're enjoying creating your own workflows now :D

 

Cheers,

Vero

I just posted it here, Vero. Hope it helps. I also posed a question there that you pros might be able to help me with!

 

I took a look at your question and I believe that this CAN be done but its a bit more advanced. Essentially, the way your doing this now is with a File Filter. It's basically the same as a regular file search in Alfred, but targeted to a specific folder or kind of file. To do what you're wanting to do would require a custom Script Filter. A Script Filter allows you to generate the output that Alfred shows through scripting. With that, you could make the text of the results show anything you wanted, but requires scripting knowledge.
