Fallback Searches

The following sections cover the Alfred fallback searches that are provided by the Doctor Drafts Alfred workflow.

Fallback Searches can be configured to be displayed in Alfred when you type in an entry. When the entry does not match a keyword, Alfred can be configured to offer up some tailored searches. Ofen this is tied to people’s favourite search engine and other web sites. But, they can also be linked up to other types of searches. In this case searches related to Drafts.
