Can iOS shortcuts display a OF project?


I’d like to create a iOS shortcut which when run would open OF and display a particular project – is that possible with the latest OF for iOS?


It’s possible in the very latest OmniFocus 3.4 TestFlight builds. Check out the “Show in OmniFocus” Action.


OK, thanks for that info.


I’m assuming this latest build will also allow a shortcut to retrieve today’s tasks. That I’m looking forward to as it, together with my calendar entries, would form my “daily briefing” draft in Drafts. (I can already pull in my calendar entries that way.)


It depends on what you mean by “today’s”, but if you want to retrieve tasks for use later in a shortcut (to add to a draft, for example), I’d check out the “Query Tasks” shortcut action. If it doesn’t do what you need in order to build your Draft, let us know!

P.S. Before we ship this action is slated to be renamed to “Find Tasks” to better match the naming of built-in shortcuts.


Thanks! I’ll look out for this Shortcuts action - whenever it ships.
