Inside OmniFocus: Tags, Perspectives, and Automation
Here I wrote about some of my OmniFocus workflow, with some Workflow workflows as well as Launch Center Pro automation.
Workflow as an OmniFocus Trigger List
A workflow I frequently run to help me remember tasks is my Trigger List workflow. For those of you not familiar with them, trigger lists are essentially prompts you use to help you remember things you may have forgotten.
Interview with Rosemary Orchard, Creator of Automation Orchard
Jeff interviewed me about the launching of Automation Orchard and my love of automation.
Learn OmniFocus Workflows: Rose Orchard
This is a video where I demonstrate my workflow in OmniFocus 3 for iOS, as well as some Workflow workflows which I use to automate my system.
Workflow: Menus, Lists & Dictionaries
When should you use a list or a menu. What about a dictionary? If you’re not a programmer and have had little experience with writing for computers in general then this can be a little overwhelming.
Siri Watch Face
The Siri Watch face has been an unexpected gem for me - it is limited but still very useful. One thing many people miss is that you can customise the data sources for the watch face - so if you don’t want to see reminders to breathe, or the stocks then you don’t need to.
Overlay Contact Information on Wallpaper
A while ago Katie Floyd put out a call on Twitter looking for a replacement app which can overlay contact information onto your wallpaper for iOS. I thought “I bet you can do this with Workflow”, and I was right! Here’s how it works.
Launching Automation Orchard
I’ve been working on a project for a while - a place to find all of the automation content for Mac, iOS, Web and even your home, and it’s finally ready!
iOS App Review: Sidefari
Sidefari is a small utility which has had a place on my iPad since shortly after it’s release. It’s a very simple browser which uses the Safari engine, and it’s purpose is to allow you to view two different web pages at once. This feature has been built into iOS since Sidefari was released, but it still has it’s place for me.
Workflows for Project Planning With Trello and OmniFocus
Trello is a lovely service which offers Kanban boards for planning - and I often like to plan out projects there, especially ones that need to be done in multiple stages or have many areas of focus. OmniFocus is my task manager of choice though which means I need my tasks to end up in there to have any hope of accomplishing them. To this end I have created a few Workflow workflows to get the data out of Trello and into OmniFocus, they’re not very sophisticated - but they function very well.
