File Action Triggers
Updated in Alfred 4.5
Creating a File Action Trigger
By default, Alfred will always show your custom action in the list of available result actions when files are selected, unless you specify the file types for which you want your action to appear.
For example, if your action is only relevant to images and PDFs, you can drag individual files (a jpg, a png and a gif file) to add their types. Alternatively, you can add the ContentTreeType (+public.image for all types of images).
The file action trigger can then be connected to an object that will perform the relevant action.
Once created, your action will show up in the Universal Actions view when selecting files of the relevant types.
You may also limit the action to only showing when Single, Multiple or Single and Multiple arguments are selected. For example, select
Single input arguments if your workflow only works with single file.
