Having recently switched from the 2.x version of Alfred to the latest 3.0 version, I naturally wanted to port over all of my workflows. Some of my Alfred workflows include:
There’s a really great roundup of Alfred 3 compatible ones here.
Another that I made good use of was the Asana workflow. Asana is the best productivity app out there, so when I first discovered back in the day that there was an Alfred integration, I was psyched.
Fast-forward to a couple weeks ago, when it came time to add it to the new Alfred. I downloaded the
.alfredworkflow file only to be surprised to find that it wasn’t compatible. Wha?

Some forum digging confirmed what I already saw: it’s not compatible out of the box. That’s annoying, but not an issue.
What I ended up doing was symlinking the old Alfred 2 directory to the new one, so that the Asana workflow was happy. This also let me avoid having to manually tweak the
.alfredworkflow script itself. Here’s how:
After that, everything worked like a charm!
Now to just tackle that todo list…
