Searching for files by date created/modified?


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to search for files by date created or date modified? For example, I'd like to find all the files created on the 28th of April. 

 

You can create a file filter and set the search scope to be today, last 3/7/30 days or older than 30 days. 

 

For example, I have a file filter called "new" for files 3 days old or less:

Type "new" followed by the spacebar to begin a filtered search, e.g. "new index" or type "new" with two spaces to list entries by latest.

Thanks, this may come useful.

 

Is there not a way to search for a specific date?

This isn't possible in Alfred by default, but it's likely that a script could be created, allowing you to specify a date in a workflow. I've moved your thread to the "Workflow help & questions" section so that fellow Alfred users can help you out :)
