Feature request: Prompt action


Recommended Posts

How it works:

 

Drop it into a workflow and set the options:

Prompt text - this appears in Alfred's main input window with the cursor flashing after it. It would have to be fairly short, something like, 'Are you sure?'

 

Responses (optional).

 

A list of values that the user can select from. These will appear in Alfred's search results. 

 

or

 

A script that generates the responses using Alfred's results XML format.

 

or 

 

Nothing at all, so the user can enter any value.

 

The action returns the selected value in {prompt}

 

And with your other hand, you could code up a nice conditional action to go with it ...  :rolleyes:

Something like this may be possible in the future. For now you can fake things like this by using AppleScript and telling Alfred to search.
