Automating OmniFocus 3 Using Siri Shortcuts: Advanced

March 13, 2019 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

This session builds on the foundation of Automating OmniFocus 3 Using Siri Shortcuts: Basics and Automating OmniFocus 3 Using Siri Shortcuts: Beyond the Basics.

We’ll delve into more elaborate workflows, including those that involve multiple apps and online services. You’ll learn how to create dynamic project templates that leverage powerful and flexible Siri Shortcut actions (e.g. dictionaries and date calculations).

Session Overview

Attend the live session and learn how to:

  • Create more complex, dynamic project templates, including those that make use of dictionaries and date calculations.
  • Use text actions to combine TaskPaper tasks.
  • Create repeating tasks in TaskPaper.
  • Create OmniFocus tasks by choosing from a list.
  • Use TaskPaper tasks stored in Drafts and files (e.g. iCloud or Dropbox)
  • Turn an existing project into a template.
  • Make use of Siri Shortcuts that are run from within OmniFocus (via Share Sheet).
  • Make use of Mac project templates (i.e. those that use Populate Template Placeholders AppleScript) on iOS.
  • Create Siri Shortcuts that integrate OmniFocus with other popular third-party productivity apps.
  • And more…

Prerequisite
