Works great! Thanks for this workflow!

 

Feedback on the new beta (v69)

• this command isn't working as intended: r thursday have a banana medium priority

The workflow will not set this reminder as medium priority.

 

• Additional app support request: Safari, Whatsapp, Spark (email client), Fantastical, Atom, CyberDuck, Parallels, terminal, Github desktop client, iTunes.

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:

Hi everyone. The new version is now live, if you are using macOS 10.12 and Alfred v3, I encourage you to update. Please see the first post with download links and updated usage instructions. Refer to the changelog at the bottom for more details about the changes.

 

Thanks everyone for your feedback, and sorry it took such a long time to get this update out!

I would love to assign a key command to the "r this" function.  Is that possible?  I tried but only got half way. 

 

Thanks!

Not really. I will think about maybe enabling triggers on the workflow to allow for this.

However you can at least do this:

Create a new workflow like so:

Alfred_Preferences.jpg.a2aa6887e9e3f386ff17f16f0e04b053.jpg

In the Run NSAppleScript:

 

on alfred_script(q)
  tell application "Alfred 3" to search "r this"
end alfred_script

This will prepopulate Alfred with "r this" when you press your hotkey, so all you need to do is press enter

@paulbryanvisual There's in fact a much simpler way than the one suggested by @surrealroad in his latest post.

 

Create a hotkey, and assign it the following configuration (except for the hotkey - obviously set anything you like for that)

When you use your hotkey, Alfred will pop-up with "r this" already populated.

Hope this helps :)

@Vero Thanks!  That is exactly what I had done and I have been using it a lot.  I was hoping to find a way to avoid the extra step of the Alfred pop-up and hitting enter.  It would be better if the action ran immediately.  Is that possible?

If you call an Alfred element with a UI, it's going to pop up.

 

If you don't want that, you need to directly call the downstream element that does the actual work. You probably need to add an External Trigger connected to that element and call it with the appropriate arguments via AppleScript. You can trigger the AppleScript via an Alfred Hotkey.

FYI the latest version (v73) now includes an external trigger. I just tested it with the "this" keyword, and it seems to work correctly:

Would you please elaborate again how to set reminders in Things 3 or this workflow doesn't support Thing 3? I saw it on the screenshot, so I suppose it should work well with it. Sorry if you have already answered. Thanks again for creating such a great workflow!

This workflow appears to no longer function in Alfred 3.7 build 938/OS 10.13.6…

 

Hey sots, most things seem to work for me. Can you elaborate?

Awesome Workflow. Any chance this might be integrated with the new Google Calendar or iCal? It'd be awesome being able to create calendar events too.
