12. Sharing Actions and Workflows

Automator is a truly amazing technology that can benefit virtually every Mac user. Unfortunately, people are often intimidated by it and are unsure of how to get started. But you can help spread the good word about Automator by showing others what it can do and how easy it is to use. If you’ve created a useful workflow, send it to friends so they can use it, too. Once they’ve seen the benefits of Automator firsthand, they’re sure to begin adopting it themselves.

This chapter explores various ways of sharing actions and workflows with friends and colleagues, including emailing workflows, locating action files in the Finder, importing actions on your own machine, and printing workflows.
