Bad behavior on phone number field

Recommended Posts

On Alfred contacts card the phone number format is displayed unformatted when added by the OS X Contacts App, although it's well displayed when added by the iOS Contacts App. Look:

Nevertheless, both fields are correctly displayed on Mac and iPhone Contacts App:

Apologies for the slow reply - Posts in the bugs forum can sometimes take a bit of time to get a response as we need to investigate the issues or check their status in our system.

 

Due to the fact that there so many different ways to format phone numbers based on numerous different standards across the world, our view for version 2 was that Alfred would use the format provided to him by OS X, leaving the logic to your system settings and OS X itself. This allows users to use their respective country's formatting, or an alternative formatting of their choice.

 
However, a few OS X updates ago, bugs were introduced to the Contacts API, resulting in the phone numbers being passed wrongly formatted (or not formatted at all).
 
In the light of this, we have a ticket to improve this in a future major version of Alfred, so that Alfred doesn't rely on OS X. In the meantime, you can manually enter the contact details in Contacts using the format you want, and this will be fed through by OS X. :)
 
Cheers,
