Save a workflow
After creating your workflow, you can save it to use again or share with others.
If you choose a specific type of workflow, such as an Application or Calendar Alarm, the workflow is saved as that type. For example, if you chose the Calendar Alarm workflow, when you save it, Automator automatically opens Calendar and creates a Calendar alarm event.
If you’re creating a standard workflow, you can save it as a document or an app. When you save your workflow as a document, you can open it for editing or to run it in Automator. The workflow document does not run automatically. When you save your workflow as an app, it runs immediately when you open it.
Choose File > Save.
Select a location for the saved workflow.
Click the File Format pop-up menu, then choose a type of workflow:
To save your workflow as a standard workflow that runs in Automator, choose Workflow.
To save your workflow as an app that runs immediately when opened, choose Application.
