These 6 Alfred Workflows Can Help You Increase Your Productivity
Become an Alfred Powerpack Power User!
I promised Chris and Bruno on Twitter the other day that I would show them more of my workflows and try to convince them to buy Alfred's Powerpack. Today I'll show you an excerpt from my 50+ workflows. Start small first.
Bitly URL Shortener
Attentive readers and Twitter followers may have noticed that I have my own short domain: nttr.st. This points to Bitly, which I use as a URL shortener service. With this workflow, I create short links without visiting Bitly. All you have to do is install the workflow, insert your Bitly Access Token and you're good to go.
Can I Use
Can I use this feature in Safari (the new IE)? I have asked this workflow many times and was promptly directed to the appropriate CanIUse page.
This is definitely one of my most used workflows. How often do you need a placeholder text? With this workflow, I have one right away.
"Have you ever turned your WiFi off and on again?" this question is not as classic as the one with the computer restart, but nevertheless this skill has already solved one or the other network problem for me. With a few taps on the keyboard, the WiFi is first turned off and then turned on again.
Meetings on Zoom and Co. are no longer a rarity. Every day I spend time in various apps to see my work colleagues, customers, and friends. Some have easy to remember shortcuts to mute the microphone, others do not. The problem is that they all use different shortcuts to quickly mute themselves. That's why this skill is very helpful for me. With my own keyword, I can now toggle the microphone. A tip if you use this workflow, check out this issue to fix a volume issue.
