It was just a month or so ago that was thinking I needed a good way to take particular OmniFocus lists with me on my watch, because I love ditching my phone when I can.
Lo and behold, Cheatsheet, an app I love, just added Shortcuts support. This means I can very easily create a list from OmniFocus and put it in a cheat, making it ready to take with me (requires Cheatsheat’s Pro in-app purchase, but well worth it).
- Minor update
- Added Maps as a source for phone numbers in the Phone branch
- Added alert to Bookmarked URLs branch to align to all the others

- Added branch for Things, using its
show URL scheme
query parameter to show a particular project, or else the
id parameter to show a built-in list
- Added branch for DEVONthink To Go
- Added branch for Craft (requires choosing the workspace to open when you actually use the URL, but hey, you play the hand you’re dealt)
- Added branches for OmniFocus 4 Beta
- Added branch for Agenda 13.1 Beta
- Added comment actions to capture changelog and protips
I was listening my pals Jay Miller, Rosemary Orchard, and David Sparks discuss Hook on a recent episode of the Automators podcast, and got thinking about how often I benefit from linking across resources on my phone/iPad (or would like to benefit from it, if I actually did it more).
Some real examples:
- Put a phone number in an OmniFocus task
- Reference an OmniFocus project in an Agenda note
- Add a location in a Note
And plenty more.
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.
I recently needed to conduct a series of user interviews at work to get feedback and engage in testing a new product, and thought this would be an awesome use case for Shortcuts, so that I could book meetings easily.
