Parse Omnifocus Tasks

Recommended Posts

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!






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.

I have nested contexts (e.g. Technology : Online) and find the script doesn’t handle these. I also tried > and :: with a Project name, but was unable to see my tests in the named project. Am I misunderstanding the syntax?
