Recent Items 4.2 for Alfred 3: Docs, Folders, Apps + Custom Categories + Favorites + Interaction with Open/Save Dialogs and more...

Recommended Posts

why office documents can't be showed in the 'recent doc'? I will be very grateful if someone tell me the reason...

Thanks for the great workflow, it's the most helpful one I found so far for alfred.

 

However, I have an issue with calling up recent folders.

 

It's not the same list as in Finder-> Go -> Recent folders, but somewhat closer to creating a smart folder with options to search recently modified/ opened folders...

 

I am using Finder in column view, and the smart folder approach is known not working well with it. I need to deliberately double click a folder to make it appear in smart folder..

 

Is it possible to make the workflow calling the finder's recent folders list directly?

Thanks for this most useful workflow, it saves a lot of time! I have a small issue (Alfred 3.1.1, OS X 10.11.6), I have changed some keywords, e.g. I use ".fav" for accessing favorites. It seems that this makes some of the functions not work as intended, e.g. when adding or removing a favorite the list of favorites is intended to show but instead just "rec Favorites ➣" is shown, not the list. Any easy way to fix this?

It's not possible because Finder does not have an AppleScript command for that.

I'm having trouble with the recent Downloads feature. Gets stuck on loading and the script runs wild in the background. Tried reinstalling - didn't help. Any suggestions?

I'm having the same issue as @Cunning_Stunts. Use the feature daily, if anyone has any suggestions, would be very much appreciated. Thanks

 

I have made a test with the current version for Alfred 3 (4.2) and it seems to be working fine.

 

I'll make more tests but note that the workflow depends on Spotlight and, sometimes, it may be a good idea to delete the workflow and install it again. Note, however, that you will lose your customization.

 

Finally, make sure to update Alfred 3 and use version 4.2 of the workflow.

There is not easy way to do that. I'd have to change some scripts.

Hi @Carlos-Sz, strange yeah I'm definitely using the same versions as you but no luck. I've deleted a few times and reinstalled, cleared cache too. Thank you for testing anyway, i'll try and find another solution.Z

@Cunning_Stunts @Carlos-Sz strangely this just started working for again randomly this morning. Hadn't done anything different since testing yesterday. 

 

The workflow depends on Spotlight. Maybe something related to it. Thank you for your feedback.

Hello and thank you Carlos for this incredibly handy workflow!

 

Was wondering if there's a way to add Servers as a category (like the Apple Menu->Recent Items has). The link in the description/help file to "Alfred Metadata Analyzer" no longer works so I'm not sure where to start.

thank you @Carlos-Sz  .. this is a great script.. i just find one quirk with it.. i share a folder to several co-workers on the network, and it seems the files that they access show up in the results. I hope this can be fixed. thank you.
