Recent Documents action and Microsoft Office apps

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm really glad the recent documents action is now in the beta. It is working really well with most Applications.

 

With the Microsoft Office apps the action says "no recent documents to show". However when opening the Application and going to File > Open Recent it does display the recent documents.

 

I'm guessing this is to do with the Office apps, but is it possible for you to get the recent documents action to work with them?

 

Thanks

 

Ben

You've found your answer but it's worth mentioning that if you open the Office files using Alfred, you'll see a list of these recent documents :)

 

Ok, so it's official that Alfred will not show (for example) the Recent files that Excel has in the "recent documents" entry of Alfred?

 

That's a shame. It would be very good if it would pickup the recent files from Excel/Word/Powerpoint

Office doesn't publish its recent documents in a way that can be read by other applications like Alfred, so you won't see the full list of files opened in Office apps. However, Alfred will present you with all of the Office documents you've opened with Alfred. :)
