politicus Posted November 29, 2015 Share Posted November 29, 2015 I have been creating a lot of workflows that let me access a specific url of a specific website. For example, a workflow that would open the page of the "Alfred V2 suggestions Feature Suggestions". So that, I just have to open Alfred, type the 3 letters of the keyword, hit enter and voila. I use keyboard shortcuts to open the urls I use often/daily (= about 20 urls). With keywords based workflows, I can open urls that I use "now and then" (= about 100 urls). It is really a game changer as it makes it smoother/faster than typing the address bar in the browser. The problem is creating the workflow. Not that it is hard or that much of a time killer. It is just that it could be streamlined. Here is my idea. The goal of the feature is to create a workflow that will be launched via a keyword and will open one url. I would love to have a workflow that when launched would: - take the url of the active window of my browser (Google Chrome), - launch Alfred, - create a blank workflow similar to the "Open URL with a hotkey" (The only difference here is the hotkey trigger would be replaced by a keyword input). - would open the input panel so that I could add my keyword. I would just have to hit enter and boom. Job done! I know I could use the clipboard feature but urls are too often to long to be red. And workflows with keywords are way faster.
