  • Create more complex, dynamic project templates, including those that make use of dictionaries and date calculations.
  • Use text actions to combine TaskPaper tasks.

  • 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…
