Does anyone have a list–official or otherwise–of the URL schemes for OmniFocus? I’m trying to craft a URL to point to a particular project within OF. I’m writing this on an iOS device, not on OSX at the moment.
And specifically, is there a way to point to a Project, rather than an individual task?
The same links created when selecting ‘Copy as Link’ in OmniFocus for Mac, also work on iOS. These links look like “omnifocus:///task/xxxxxxx”. Unfortunately, the identifying string after ‘task/’ is a random string of characters. There is not currently a way to discover the specific URL for a task or project from within the iOS versions of OmniFocus.
If this is something you’d really like to see, drop us an email and we’ll be sure add your thoughts to our development database!
It is, however, possible to use URLs on an iOS device to access perspectives:
Access the Inbox using a URL of the form omnifocus:///inbox.
Access built-in perspectives as well as custom [perspectives] (Pro) by their names (not object IDs) using a URL of the form omnifocus:///perspective/Completed.
The name lookups support our usual “SmartMatch” completion matching, so if you have a project named “My Project” you’ll be able to use “omnifocus:///task/mp” to get to it (or whatever the first match for “mp” turns out to be).
It doesn’t appear that the functionality has been carried over yet to OmniFocus for Mac, but I imagine we’ll see it eventually.
