I recently had the enormous pleasure of being able to return to Learn OmniFocus, joining Tim Stringer to share some moves about using iOS Shortcuts with OmniFocus . We also went through ways to use this to customize Home Screens with widgets, with particular thanks to great apps that augment Shortcuts capabilities:

Tim has made a sample version of the video freely available to all, so I’ve added it here below, and is sharing the Shortcuts I built as part of his page highlighting this video/event.

Now in OmniFocus: Opens the Morning, Afternoon, Evening, or Weekend perspective in OmniFocus based on the day of the week and the time of day.

Now in OmniFocus Widget: An adaptation of the Now in OmniFocus Shortcut that displays tasks in a Widget, with some help from WidgetPack.

OmniFocus Charty Ring: This Shortcut makes use of Charty to display a graphical representation of your daily progress.

Add to OF List: Allows you to add a task, complete with notes, to a predefined list (project) in OmniFocus. Using this Shortcut eliminates the overhead of manually adding actions to projects and promotes consistency. This Shortcut leverages Toolbox Pro to create an attractive and functional menu.

Learn OmniFocus subscribers get a full-length video with more detail and context. If you’re an OmniFocus user and haven’t yet checked out the Learn OmniFocus resources, I highly recommend it.
