I've always loved this workflow, and had only minor issues with it (usually me forgetting the syntax) but this latest update is fantastic. It's so much more intuitive and I use it constantly. Thanks for the great work!

Thanks for the great workflow. I created a feature branch on Github to add rstudy - which will create five reminders over increasing intervals. 
The idea of is to apply spaced repetition- a learning strategy, to increase recall by revising after 1hour, 5 hours, 1 day, 5 days, 25 days. 

Let me know if you find this a  useful feature - I find rstudy this works well since so much of what we learn is from the internet.

Sorry for the late reply here. I didn't realize you had responded. Anyway, the only example that works is actually adding a task. I can type 'r some text' and it will add 'some text' as a reminder. Nothing else works. I always get a "Reminder command not recognized or no matching reminders found".

 

radd, rshow don't work either. Not sure why. I did get rtest to run and here is the output:

Hey, I found this thread by googling the "Reminder command not recognized..." string. 

 

When I type in one of your test commands, like "r today release the hamsters," it does the following:

  1. For about five seconds, it says "Processing request..." (Screenshot_1)
  2. For another five seconds it says "Reminder command not recognized..." (Screenshot_2)
  3. Then, after the delay, it allows me to enter the reminder as normal (Screenshot_3). 

So it works, just after a bit of a delay. 

 

Unfortunately rtest doesn't seem to work, no matter how long I wait before running it. 

 

This would be a killer workflow for me; many thanks for your work putting it together, and I hope I can figure out what's causing this delay.

All these commands works correctly.

Please take a look at my screenshots.

I have the same issue. Any command other than creating a reminder shows "command not recognized" I'm running MacOS Sierrra 10.12.1 (which could be the problem). 

 

Also, when running "r this" I can't seem to set a time for my reminder and sometimes the title I set won't stick. It will give it the subject name of the mail item or the title of the chrome window instead. It's a little inconsistent there.

Please see the first post. *Only* creating reminders are supported. in Mac OS 10.12.

Thanks, I see you mention that the "bug" may never be fixed by Apple. Do you think it's worth adding a clause to the subtext in the workflow to avoid repetitive questions from people who can't read (like me?)

Hi there, first off I love your product!


Sadly, I recently upgraded to Mac OS Sierra (10.12.1) and now cannot get the recipe to work. When I launch alfred and type r help, or remind me in ... nothing shows up. For some reason, rtest is the only thing that works, here are the results. Any ideas!?

 

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi can you check you are using this version of the workflow:

http://bit.ly/1UlcR8F

 

It appears that you upgraded from Alfred V2 to V3 and it can't store your preferences properly. Failing that, please try manually creating a folder at /Users/XXXX/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2/Workflow Data and see if it then works.

Hello everyone. I have a new beta version available. This has been rewritten from the ground up in JavaScript for Automation. It now requires Alfred v3+, MacOS Sierra+.
NEW: Enhanced date/time natural language parsing. Never worry about the correct syntax again!
NEW: Better messaging about what will happen when actioning the item.
FIXED: (Hopefully) improved performance.

 

However, there are still several features from the previous version that have not yet been carried across to this version. As such, this should be considered a beta version. The following are currently missing:

• Support Lists
Support Apps
• Auto-update support
• "help" keyword
Note created notification
• Quit reminders automatically
Support priority

 

If you:

  1. Don't mind trying this out
  2. Have Alfred version 3
  3. Are using macOS Sierra
  4. Don't need any of the absent features

Then please feel free to give it a spin:

Heh I'm not sure what happened there. I'll check my profile settings.

 

Nope, doesn't look like I can change it back. Must be something they've changed in the forum software.

Piece of feedback. It's small and doesn't really impact me. 

My screen vid software doesn't show it, but in this video Reminders.app is beach-balling for 15 seconds or so. Again, the screen vid software shows the mouse pointer as a normal pointer, but it's actually the spinning beach ball.

Updated the beta version to v66, which brings back support for priorities.

Priority

To set the priority of the reminder, either use exclamation marks right at the start or end of the command (! for low priority, !! for medium priority, !!! for high priority), or type the priority right at the end of the command (these can also be abbreviated, for example mp or p lo). For example:

  • r !!! in 2 weeks an important meeting
  • r thursday have a banana medium priority
  • r decide what to have for lunch !lo
  • r make a turkey sandwich p3

Updated the beta version to v68, which brings back support for applications via "r this".

Apps

Get reminded about the app you're using, for example the selected file in Finder, or the current tab in Chrome or Safari.

To create a reminder about the active app, simply type r this. Or keep typing to set a date, priority or a custom title, for example r this drop some sick beats on Friday !!!.

The following apps are currently supported:

  • Adobe Acrobat (Pro/DX)
  • Chromium
  • Contacts
  • Finder
  • FoldingText
  • Google Chrome
  • Google Chrome Canary
  • Mail
  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Microsoft Word
  • Safari
  • TextEdit
  • TextMate
  • Vienna
  • WebKit

Apps can be added on request. Just raise an issue with the app you use. As long as it's freely available and has AppleScript support, it can be added.

Updated the beta version to v69, which brings back support for lists.

Lists

To choose a list to use on a per-reminder basis, type in <list name> list right at the end of the command, for example r Get Santa outfit !2 in Christmas list. If a matching list can't be found, you won't be able to action the command.

In all other cases, the default Reminders list will be used (typically the first one). If you prefer, you can edit the defaultList variable within the workflow's Arg and Vars node (note that you'll have to edit this each time you upgrade the workflow however).
