Here's a quick workflow that uses Omnifocus' built-in parsing syntax (the kind that is used for Omnifocus Mail Rules: @ for context, > for project, # for start or end time). You can edit the applescript to add whatever context or project specific stuff you want. Hope this is useful!

Update:

 

From bnmnetp's suggestion, I added Subtext that summarizes the syntax. I also added two others for oft-used contexts (Waiting and Assignments), but you can delete or edit those at will.

Great stuff,  In my copy I added the following text to Subtext just to remind me of the syntax:

 

@ context  # date > or :: project $ estimate  ! flag 

 

I just serves as a nice reminder, especially for those who are new to the syntax.

Can someone show a query with all of the syntax items used? I'm having trouble with it.

 

Thank you!
