Hi, just call for help here, if someone has an advice on this.
I was very excited when Omnifocus supported Siri. I would finally be able to voice tasks into Omnifocus while driving to work, as ideas get through my head.
Then… well, I don’t know if it is me only, but I just can’t make Siri work with Omnifocus in a stable way.
I use the same syntax, the same phrase at different times to instruct Siri to open a task in Omnifocus and it gets me invalid responses most times: Either it looks in apple music, or in internet, or tells me it cannot do that…or goes to the phone contacts… only once in 5 times it actually opens omnifocus and enters a task in the Inbox, let alone more complex instructions.
¿Any better experience around? ¿Do you rely in Siri to voice tasks in Omnifocus while commuting from work? ¿Maybe Siri shortcuts you use to make it a bit better?
I’ve used Siri instructions for example, “Remind me in OmniFocus to empty the bins at 9pm tomorrow night” with relative success on iPhone but with much less success on apple watch.
So when I dictate on apple watch I simply instruct Reminders App to record the instruction and pass it to OmniFocus via the optional setting in OmniFocus.
So if I find myself with the iPhone in hand I do it the proper way and with apple watch I use the second method, ie, drop the ’in OmniFocus’ command.
