    Hey!! on the contacts app, anybody knows a way to export all contacts but individually at once, so you have one vcf file per contact? Because It' only possible to export all of it in one vcf file but I want individual vcf files.

    Maybe with automator? How do I do that? Anybody has a clue?

    Automator is a Mac app. You posted in the iOS Apps section. What, exactly, is your setup?

    Oh ****, sorry I posted this on iOS section. Should I repost this in the mac apps?
    I have mac sierra,15 inch, 16GB Ram
    AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB

    Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB

    I don't know it that helps... But my question is really about the contacts app, not necessarily automator!!!

    I don't know if the instructions posted in this Apple thread will work. Worth a shot.

    Yeah thanks, I seen it already.
    But I don't get this step:

    Automator vCard Instructions: 1. Open Address Book. 2. Select entries you would like to export as individual vCards. 3. Open Automator. 4. Select Custom Workflow. 5. Add the following workflows in this order: Get Selected Address Book Items, Export VCards. 6. Change the setting in the Export VCards flow item to "Individual VCards". 7. Select a folder to export the VCard files. 8. Click Run.
    That's why I mentioned automator in my original post.

    1. Open Contacts
    2. Select Contacts to be exported
    3. Open Automator
    4. Create New Workflow
    5. Select Library>Contacts
    6. Drag "Get Selected Contact Items" to the workflow area
    7. Drag "Export vCards" to the workflow area
    8. In the "Export vCards" box change "Export" to "individual vCards" and choose where you want the export to go.
    9. Click the "Run" button
