Cannot get Alfred to open contacts in BusyContacts

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help - I cannot get Alfred to open a found contact in Busycontacts, instead it always opens in Apples Contacts. I have followed the suggestions here & this makes no difference:-

Any suggestions?

 

OSX 10.11.3

Alfred v2.8.3

 

Thanks

Hi Gareth,

 

Could you share a screenshot of exactly what you've set in your own Contacts Advanced preferences?

 

Cheers,

Hi Vero - I'm really sorry, but after battling with this interface for 10 mins, I can't figure out how to post a screen shot! Can you tell me how to do this, or give me an email address & I will send this to you. Thanks Gareth

Hi Vero - I'm new to this forum, so not sure if you saw the image I posted (per your request above) - I posted this at

Any help would be appreciated

 

Thanks

That look to be configured correctly - what do you have configured in Alfred's main contacts tab? What happens if you use cmd+o on a selected contact.

 

Cheers,

Hi Andrew

 

This is a screen shot of the main contacts tab

When I use cmd-o the Contacts app opens & not Busycontacts.

 

I experimented by removing the selection, to open Contacts in Alfred & then the contacts still just open in the Contacts app.

 

I am unable to find a way to get these to open in BusyContacts...

 

Thanks

I'm having the same trouble. I've pasted the BusyContacts URL handler (busycontacts://show/{uid}) in the Contacts/Advanced screen in Alfred's Preferences. The only way I can get a contact to open in BusyContacts from Alfred is to uncheck the "Open Contacts in Alfred" box on the main Contacts screen. Leaving that box checked and hitting ⌘O still opens the contact in the Contacts app. Any suggestions?

As far as I can tell, in both of your cases, you're using the correct URL handler for BusyContacts to be used.

 

Neither Andrew or myself use BusyContacts, but I'll be dropping a line to the BusyMac team a line to ask them whether they have any tips for you :)

 

Cheers,

Vero
