MailTags Workflow 2.5 (Tag + Project + Tickle)


Recommended Posts

Mailtags Workflow 2.5

Workflow to tag, tickle and set Project to emails using MailTags 3.

The workflow was suggested by rdpozo.

Usage

  • Select email(s) from Apple Mail app
  • Bring Alfred and type the keyword mtag (for tagging) or mproj (for Project) or mtic (for Tickle)
  • Select a tag or Project or Tickle from the list or type a new one. You can also type multiple tags separating them by comma e.g. tag1,tag2,tag3
  • Hit return key

You can set a new email Tickle by typing the date (e.g. 4/5/13 or 4-5-2013 or 4.5.13) or by telling how many days from now on (e.g. 5 days or 10 days).

 

To delete all tags or tickle hold control key (requires MailTags 3.2.2).

 

Type the keyword inbox to access your emails and set tags (return key), a tickle (control key) or a project (option key). This feature is still in progress. It will be slow if you have several messages in your inbox. Any feedback will be appreciated.

You can also use a hotkey to bring Alfred or a second hotkey to tag with the text inside the hotkey configuration (see screenshot below from version 1.0). The same with Project.

But, would it also be possible to tag mails using the "Projects" tag?

I have several Projects assign with color which I would be great to access though Alfred. But I guess then Alfred needs to find the projects before it can present me with an option to tag the specified e-mail?

 

Is this too complicated?

I should have something related to projects later today. Thank you for your feedback.

This is awesome.  Thanks for doing this.

 

What would also be great is handle tTickle dates and a few other things.

 

and pull in Omnifocus, Things, theHitlist projects for the project list.

 

The projects are polled regularly by MailTagsHelper and stored in ~/Library/Mail/Indev/ExternalProjects and simple plist files.

 

If you need any assistance or is there anything that I can do to help, Let me know

Thank you very much. This is one of the most useful workflows for me. Great!

 

Great to hear!

Hi Scott

 

Nice surprise! 

 

I bought MailTags yesterday due the workflow (although MailTags was in my purchase list for some time) and I’m still learning what it can do. 

 

I own OmniFocus and I see a “OmniFocusProjects.plist”. The other two are “ThingsProjects.plist” and “theHitlistProjects.plist”?

 

By the way, I couldn’t find a list of all tags used in MailTags, only preferred. Did I miss something?

 

I’ll try Tickle dates for sure.

 

You can list the workflow, no problem at all.

 

Do you have an email so I can eventually contact you privately?

Great workflow - very useful. Thanks.

 

Great to hear!

 

Excellent workflow, thank you.

 

Is it possible to add multiple tags in one go or do I need to go through the procedure for each tag I want to add?

 

Cheers

 

Multiple tags feature is in my to do list. :)

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Great and promising workflow, thanks! I have Mailtags 3 and Things so it would be great to have support for adding Thing's projects via Alfred as well (and also multitagging an email message as suggested above).

Keep up the great work.

 

Thank you. Support for external projects is also coming soon. :)
