After installing Big Sur the iMessage workflow I used since 2013 broke, so I started looking for an alternative workflow.

This one looks promising, but sadly its not working with Big Sur.

If I type im or sms and the phone number it works fine but with im or sms and the contact name it opens the messages app and starts a new message to an unspecified contact.


Would love to get this one working.


So, I have been maintaining this workflow for a few years now in a forked branch from the main repo. This year I have just started a new workflow based on the previous one. 


I just finished this today, so let me know if you encounter any issues. It's working fine for me on Big Sur.

Interesting....It seems to be working okay for me on Big Sur. I, too, had been using a different workflow "iMessage to Friend" multiple times a day for years and years. It doesn't work with Big Sur, unfortunately.


The biggest difference with this one, is that before I could literally type my message in the Alfred pop up window. This workflow, while great, only seems to open up the contact I type in Messages. I then have to have exit out of the Alfred window to begin typing my message. Is there a way to actually type the message in the initial window?

 I read your comment a few days back, and it inspired me to add this feature in along with some other changes.


I am posting the link to Workflow on Github while I wait for the Packal submission to finish.
