Updating Reminders or other items through Shortcuts is an absolute breeze and really easy. But OF (3 not 4) doesn’t support updating tasks natively in Shortcuts. I understand this might be doable via Omni’s own Automation but I haven’t the foggiest where to even begin with that.
I think any solution (update a task; delete it and recreate it with new info etc) could work as long as it can be triggered through automation. Does anyone have any suggestions on how; or if it’s even possible? Thanks.
I’m told you can run Omni Automation via Shortcuts. But whether natively or via URL I don’t know.
This might suit you.
I’ve read about Omni Automation in patch notes and seen it in Shortcuts. But since it requires some scripting knowledge, I wouldn’t know where to begin. I didn’t see any examples of updating existing tasks on the Omni Automation site.
Yes, I can confirm you can update tasks via OmniAutomation. I am just starting a trip so I wouldn’t be able to respond for a while. You could start digging and perhaps search some of the scripts I posted for examples.
I looked through, and you’ve done a lot of cool plugins, unlocked2412! But I think most of what I could see went way over my head. I suspect it’s a relatively easy case (for someone well-versed in scripting) to adapt some of them for what I want, but sadly I couldn’t quite manage it. OmniAutomation is really tough for a layman :-/ Thanks for wanting to help though!
Here is an example for you to play with:
The following shortcut adds the string
World to the name of a task whose id is
g_cSnZ310QA. Change it to suit your needs.
