It's Christmas time, and that means tracking package deliveries!

To simplify this, here's my donation to FARR: a small set of aliases to launch the page showing your package tracking information from major shipping companies (obviously you need your shipping number for this).

Aliases supported:
  • usps (US Postal Service)
  • fedex
  • ups
  • UPS tracking number - if you just enter a UPS tracking number starting with "1Z", that alone will trigger UPS tracking

The .alias file is attached.

Merry Christmas!





NOTE: Download the latest version of this alias pack with icons here:

wanted to help out... this is basicly the same alias file, but i have included dhl, as well as regex's for the non-ups shippers.

giving credit where credit is due: i borrowed the missing url's and regexp from the track package plugin for firefox. though, I could have found the information easily, and i doubt the devs care. smiley but to be nice, you might think of installing it if you use firefox, handy little tool.

Cool ! I'll be tracking my new hard drive !  smiley

(Just for those who don't know how to use this alias file : copy the file into the custom alias directory : C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\AliasGroups\MyCustom\  ; that's it !)

hey, heres a new version, due to this bug(?), i was unable to do this the RIGHT way (notice $$1$$2) but, it does work. This alias package does virtually identically to the originals but it now only has one alias line for each shipping provider (instead of one with regex, and one without)

if you downloaded version 1.1 i posted a few posts up, then it is functionally identical and you only need to download it if you want to smiley if you dont have 1.1, get 1.2

Hope I edited the right version anyway here is a zip which also has icons included. If it isn't the right version feel free to implement the icons from my example. smiley

Great idea, but I wanted to be able to use the hotkey copy function to load the tracker links for all of them and use the index to select. I am a FARR newbie (so don't know if I did it right).

I created an alias "track", regex "^track (.*)", pasted all the results from your tracker alias file into the actions, and created a hotkey to load track %cliptext% into the search window with copy selected text checked.

Now I just highlight a tracking number in an email, use the hotkey, then select the appropriate service from the list. Saves a few keystrokes from entering the service shortcut (ups, dhl, etc) and cut and paste the tracking number.

I also added a couple of Australian trackers:
aae $$1 | https://trackandtrace.aae.com.au/$$1
fastway $$1 | http://www.fastway.com.au...ices/track-your-parcel?l=$$1

Cheers
