I’d love to have a script for OmniFocus 3 that removes the “Today” tag and marks a task complete (or vice versa). Is this possible?
I have many repeating tasks (often deferred upon completion) that I might tag as “Today”, but don’t want to be tagged as such in their next instance.
I have little knowledge of OF scripting - in particular for OF3 - though I have cobbled some things together for OF2. Any guidance is appreciated!
this seems to work
tell application "OmniFocus"
tell front window
set selectedTrees to selected trees of content
set selectedTasks to every item of selectedTrees
tell front document
repeat with i from 1 to count of selectedTasks
set theTask to the value of item i of selectedTasks
set currTags to name of tags of theTask
repeat with x from 1 to count of currTags
set currTag to item x of currTags
if currTag = "today" then
set currTag to (first flattened tag whose name is item x of currTags)
remove currTag from tags of theTask
mark complete theTask
It does! You rock. Thanks so much!
wow this is amazing. You wont happen to be able to modify the code to do the same task in a specific project name?
I’m just getting started. Can you recommend a tutorial on where/how to actually enter this script?
