Is there natural language entry?


#1

Hello all,

New to OF. If I want to create an entry, can I add fields as part of the Subject, ie

“Buy milk tomorrow 8AM”

Or is there a way to use the TaskPaper format to enter a task.

Hope I am asking the question correctly…

Thank you

Yes, but I believe only in certain fields. For example:

in the Due field, you can type “tomorrow” or often shorter strings like “tom” and hit enter (or tab) etc. Not sure where any comprehensive list of allowable phrases and abbreviations resides however.

Short answer - not at present.

There’s a substantial discussion here, which might be helpful:

Also, it is somewhat doable using alfred and this workflow:
