Just returned to OmniFocus today because the new iOS 11 features resolve most of what was given me headaches in the past with OF. As I was playing with the app, I was looking for a way to create links to notes in the Notes app and items in the Files app. I discovered this great trick for any app that has the “Add People” option:
- From the file you want to create an OF task from, click on “Add People”
- OF will be among the icons on the bottom; click it
- When the email page opens up, just click “Continue” and the OF task creation sheet will appear with a link back to to the item pre-filled in the notes section
Works like a charm and the links appear to work in Mac.
