Automating OmniFocus – 2015-04-25
April 25, 2015 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
By introducing convenient shortcuts and automation for OmniFocus activities that you perform on a regular basis you’ll be able to access and create actions and projects faster than ever before. The cumulative time savings that is available by applying these techniques can be quite significant. Additionally, having more efficient ways to access OmniFocus features reduces friction and encourages regular use of OmniFocus.
In this webinar we’ll look at a multitude of ways to add speed and convenience to OmniFocus on both Mac and iOS. Building on the material that was covered in the Taming Email with OmniFocus webinar, we’ll also look at some web-based solutions that help automate task creation behind the scenes.

- Installing and using AppleScripts with OmniFocus for Mac.
- Conveniently launching OmniFocus AppleScripts using FastScripts.
- Creating an OmniFocus project based on a predefined template, complete with prompts for project-specific information.
