Contact Action Trigger

Create a Contact Action trigger to set an alternative action to be performed on an Address Book Contact's field when you select it in Alfred's Contacts Viewer.

Contacts Viewer


Contact Action Example Use

First, create your workflow and connect the Contact Action to an action. Once you've created your workflow, go to Features > Contacts to set the custom action.

Create a Contact Action trigger and a Run Script or Run NSAppleScript action, containing the necessary script to use your favourite VOIP software.

Contact Action Example

Go to Features > Contacts and create a new Custom Action for the "phone" field.

Contact VOIP Example

When you next press Return on a phone number in Alfred, instead of performing the default Alfred action for a phone number (copying the phone number to your clipboard), it will start your VOIP call.
