Add Event or Todo to BusyCal

Recommended Posts

You can specify a calendar by using the slash trick (that's how I call it): End the event string with "/" and the first letter of the calendar, i.e. "cinema today /p" ("/p" for calendar "Private").

I have a simple request.  Is there a way you can statically add a location to the script. Example I want to type busy Test Meeting and have it create a new meeting named Test Meeting with my conference bridge already in the location field?

 

Sorry I am a beginner so this might elementary.

It's actually quite easy. Open the workflow and double click the action that says "open URL" (the upper right one).

In the URL field (which currently says "busycalevent://new/{query}") you just append the keyword "in" and your location. Be aware that you have to URL-encode some characters, i.e. spaces become "%20". A list of those characters can be found here.

 

An example: if your location was "my sweet home", the URL field should be changed to "busycalevent://new/{query}%20in%20my%20sweet%20home".

Hope this helps.

Is there any way to modify this workflow to work with Daylite instead?

 

I'm sorry. I don't know Daylite. BusyCal works with URL schemes, so you may try to look for URL scheme support in Daylite and build something like this yourself.

I use a CRM app for the Mac called Daylite. Is there any way to modify this workflow to work with Daylite instead?

Thanks

 

1) Switch on the reminder syncing service inside Daylite by installing the profile

2) Just use any of the workflows to add events to reminders, and choose the reminder calendar to be 'Worklist'

Great tool iEnno!

Having trouble with the slash trick. I have 4 lists: Q1,Q2,Q3,Q4.

'New test /Q4' Opt+Enter didn't seem to work. Hmm, any idea why? Thank you!

The workflow uses the URL scheme "busycalevent://new/-{query}" to create the Todo. According to the docs this should work. In a quick test I indeed got this working so I don't really know how to help you :(

Please advise how and when I input the "option" modifier" to get a To-Do entry

 

Instead of just pressing ↩, you press ⌥↩
