Hi there everyone, I have recently purchased keyboard maestro in a bid to stop a potentially embarrassing issue, but truth be told I am no programmer and am at a loss as to where to start.
Basically I do some things for three separate conpanies. What I would love to do is have a shortcut which would open up say three browser windows and the correct email account in airmail for company one. Then when I send out any email I won’t male the mistake of sending it from the wrong email account, as I am working exclusively in that company section.
Then I want to close down everything for company a, and use another shortcut for company b and finally company c.
Is this possible, would anyone be able to help me set it up either in here or via pm
Many thanks in anticipation
I am not sure that Keyboard Maestro is the solution to the problem as I understand it.
I will say that Airmail has two features that can be helpful;
- it has a preference that asks you to confirm the sender account before a mail is sent; as well as
- a delay feature which allows you to set a period before a mail is actually sent. Assuming your cold sweat comes on quickly enough, you can then dive into the Drafts folder and save yourself!
Beyond that, I wonder if the solution would be to set up three different accounts on your Mac and use Fast-User Switching between each of the identities? You could even use different desktops to remind yourself which account you are in!
Thank you so much for that, I didn’t even realise that, if we take email out of the equation, or even switch to a different client, is there an option with km to do the browser launch idea I had
We need to know what web browser you're using, but if it's scriptable then what you want to do is possible.
Examples are: Safari, Google Chrome, Vivaldi.
It seems to me that Airmail is somewhat AppleScriptable, so it might be possible to check your sent-from address before you send a message.
I am using Safari,
I have no particular objection to using Apple mail if that makes things possible
I just wouldn’t know where to start
Thanks for your help so far
Okay, here's one example.
Opening URLs in Safari.kmmacros (5.0 KB)
We can get MUCH more sophisticated than this.
