Yak Saver Workflow: Using the New Expression Utility

Amongst all the new features in Alfred 5.1, there is an inconspicuous new workflow object: the Expression Utility. It allows you to do maths calculations within your workflow without having to code a script.

It became immediately useful in the Yak Saver Workflow. Because it uses a Delay Utility which waits a number of seconds, you'd have to do some arithmetic yourself to configure the desired wait time.

Now we can ask for minutes and let the Expression Utility do the maths.

Much better! A small change which makes a big difference.
