Another Things Shortcut, this one is for creating a project based on an existing task as a template.
It assumes there is a task in Someday that has a checklist items within it. This Shortcut will search for that task based on key words, confirm it found the right one, then make a project from it with each checklist item as a task inside it.
I like this approach, because the management of the template is super easy inside of Things, and this Shortcut could then be bigged up pretty easily with more features:
- make a menu of known task templates to use instead of typing keywords
- add ask for input actions to set deadline dates
- add placeholder text that is replaced with other ask for input questions
- show the checklist items as a list and select which all to add to the project in cases where maybe not all tasks apply
- and so on
