Omni Automation – Fundamentals

Learn foundational skills for adding features to OmniFocus on iPhone, iPad, and Mac using Omni Automation Plug-Ins.

Omni Automation is a technology that allows you to add functionality to OmniFocus on iPhone, iPad, and Mac using “plug-ins”. This technology is also supported by Omni’s other apps and can be a helpful way to create a bridge between OmniFocus and OmniOutliner, OmniGraffle, and OmniPlan.

This course will help you tap into Omni Automation’s power by making use of existing OmniFocus plug-ins, including those featured in our OmniFocus Plug-Ins Directory. This session doesn’t assume any previous knowledge of Omni Automation and doesn’t require any programming skills.

Please Note: OmniFocus Pro is required to use Omni Automation on Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
