Jack, we're in different time zones so October 23 at 12:01PM is still about 2 hours off for me, more at the time of the screen capture. My own 2¢ would be that noon, midnight, and tomorrow would be good to add.

Please download the latest version, it addresses issues with 12am/pm, and adds the keywords "noon" and "midnight" ("tomorrow" should work already).

Specifically, if you type "am" or "pm" with a time it should use the time as entered, otherwise it will assume a 24-hour clock if you use hh:mm or hh.mm, falling back to a time based on the current time if you just put e.g. "r at 6 to do something". Hopefully this is a little more intuitive now.

Workflow is not working for me on Mavericks (official release). Are you already working on a fix, Jack?

 

 

Note: OS 10.9 Mavericks

Working as of 10.9 Mavericks GM, but performance is slow (14x slower than 10.8) due to an apparent bug in osascript (which may affect other Alfred workflows too, or might just be limited to accessing Reminder data). This means that fetching data from Reminders is taking around a minute or so per reminder. I have implemented an imperfect workaround, which means you'll see an incomplete list of reminders some of the time (whenever the cache is being rebuilt, which is roughly every 2 hours of usage), whilst increasing the amount of time the cache process is allowed to run (to around 17 minutes). This is probably the best I can do for now until the bug gets fixed (which might never happen).

 

Notifications don't appear to be working, though this seems to be the case will all workflows in Alfred in OS 10.9.

 

You will need to enable access to your reminders. You will be prompted to do this when you run the workflow, but if you need to check, go to

System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Reminders

Make sure both "Alfred 2" (and "osascript", if it is shown) are enabled.

Jack, now it's working. Thanks for the quick fixes! The only disappointing news is that notifications have stopped again, even after I run your Notes workflow, which does show a notification. Go figure.

 

As always, thanks for all of your efforts on behalf of those using Alfred. I wish I had your expertise in coding!

Hi.  New to using workflows (and Alfred).  I understand the gist, but when i type "radd" it just displays google, amazon, and wikipedia search options.  Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere?  Thanks and sorry to bump this thread for a noob question.

You should type "radd title of reminder". If you want to specify time/date, see the examples in the first post (or type "r help"). You just use "radd" instead of "r" to force the workflow to create new reminders, rather than just showing you current reminders.

Nope (but I appreciate the sentiment)..

 

Please try this version to see if that fixes the issue:

I guess what I'm saying is, the command isn't doing anything.  When I type the command out, like "radd get pet food", only google, amazon, and wikipedia search options show.  Same when I type "r help".

 

Curiously, when I just type "r" there are several things that come up, like apps that begin with R, and then down at option 7 is "add a reminder".  But if I choose that, I'm right back to the results I've described.

I have the same issue. Workflow doesn't work for me since I have installed Mavericks. And yes, I have "Alfred 2" enabled in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Reminders.

Please run "rtest" within Alfred, wait for it to complete, and paste the response. See also the note about Mavericks compatibility at the start of this thread, if you haven't already.

Please type "rtest" into alfred, and then send me the results.

Curiously, that seems to be working perfectly.

 

I should note that you are on OS 10.8.5, so you won't need to adjust anything in System Preferences.

 

If you type "radd this is a test" into Alfred, what happens?

“radd this...” seems to work … it added the browser's URL to Reminders... and after doing this, the other ways to create entries seem to work too... no idea why.  :mellow:

Something similar happened to me (I'm on Mavericks). It was like I needed to teach Alfred to recognize the "r" command by showing it the radd command. Works great now.

I've tried to search this thread with no luck. Is there a way to change the default list that this workflow posts to? I've changed it in Reminders.app.

Well you have two options. You can specify the list each time by typing "in list <name of list>" at the end of each query, or you can edit the workflow and change the properties at the top of each "run script" step to the name of the list, i.e. 'property reminderList : "name of list"'

 

The workflow otherwise uses the first list it finds by default.

I just installed this workflow and was super excited about it, but it just doesn't seem to be working. When I follow the instructions (prepend the reminder with r) I am just getting to a google search, it's not adding reminders. 

Here are the contents of my 'rtest' clipboard. I am on OSX Lion - haven't upgraded this machine to mavericks yet. Thanks for your help!

Does typing "r help" work?

Can you give me an example of something you type that doesn't work?
