Best Alfred Workflows

Alfred is a productivity application for macOS, which boosts your efficiency with hotkeys, keywords, and text expansion. Alfred community has developed thousands of workflows to help users to become more productive and shorten task time.
Below is my favorite recommendation of Alfred workflows that I have been using almost every day. is saves a lot of time with other Alfred build-in functions like clipboard management.

I have tested the below workflows, which are compatible with the latest macOS BigSur and M1 apple silicon macs.
NOTE: to start Alfred use. use Option + Space keys

Alfred Launch Key

Zoom with alfred

Zoom with Alfred is one of the amazing and fastest workflow to join scheduled/re-accruing zoom meetings. Instead of opening your email to view meeting details, clicking on the link, and you have to allow launching the meeting from your browser, it could take up to 2 minutes to complete the whole process each time. What if I told you we could establish a Zoom meeting as quickly as possible in just one or two seconds of just typing “zm” in Alfred. and that’s it.

All you have to do is to “Define” a meeting for the first time only with Metting URL. we can also use the long URL that includes the meeting encrypted password, it will launch the meeting without prompting you for the password.

  • Add or Define a new meeting
zma <meeting URL>

# example
Notification Center
  • Delete a meeting from the LIst use
zmd <meeting>

Passwords provide the first line of defense against unauthorized access to your computer and personal information. The stronger your password, the more protected your computer will be from hackers and malicious software. You should maintain strong passwords for all accounts on your computer and Internet services.

StrongPassword workflow provides the ability to Get or Generates a strong password by leveraging multiple sources.

The following examples show the creation of a strong password that includes 12 characters, you have the option to include or exclude special characters.
