Top 10 Alfred workflows in 2021
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
Zoom with alfred
Zoom with Alfred is one of the amazing and fastest workflow to join scheduled/re-accuring zoom meetings. Instead of opening your email for meeting details, clicking on the link, and you have allowed 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 1 or 2 seconds of just typing “zm” in Alfred.
