Watch folder as trigger

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Wondering if there's a way for workflows to be triggered by a folder action.

Like, everytime I add a new file to the folder, I can start a workflow to rename, move, etc automatically?

You can call Alfred via AppleScript: tell application "Alfred 3" to search "your workflow keyword"
Put that line in your Folder Action script, and it will open Alfred when you add a file to the folder.
