Tight integration between OmniFocus and Launch Center Pro is continuing to unfold. Michael Schechter posted about some really fast ways to capture tasks using using the
[clipboard], and canned text in the action URL. Genius. I rushed to set this up and am really loving it.
If you’ve played around with Launch Center at all, you’ll recognize
omnifocus:///add, which allows you to add a new task. Ken mentions URLs to open a
/perspective, and all of these work with Launch Center Pro.
Context, folder, and task URLs can be generated from the Mac client by selecting something and using Edit->Copy As Link.
When you copy the link from OmniFocus on your Mac, you’ll end up with a URL that looks something like this for a context:
And this for a single-action list:
Perspective URLs use the perspective name rather than an internal id: “omnifocus:///perspective/PerspectiveName
A note here: you’ll have to encode the spaces in a perspective names with a
%20. The URL for my Next Actions perspective looks like this:
I set up some @contexts that make sense to be quickly accessible on iPhone, like @errands, @phone, and perspectives I’ve set up like Next and Daily.
Seeing this type of workflow ninja stuff (finally) on iPhone really excites me.
