Searching for Custom Task Data Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello, I have an OmniPlan where I have custom data attached to a task. Because I have a lot of data I want to search on that data.

However when I try to find any of the text that is in the custom data field it doesn't work. Is this not supported?

Thanks
Michael

The applescript library does have a function Lookup() for finding tasks through custom data.

You can also use a more general idiom of the form

Code:
tell application id "OPla"
	tell front document
		try
			set lstTasks to tasks where value of its custom data entry strKey contains strVal
		on error strMsg
			display alert strMsg
		end try
	end tell
end tell
 
And in the GUI, you can use View > Filter Tasks

(Your custom fields will appear at the bottom of the drop-down)
 
Thanks, should finding via Command+F work though? Does that only search the task name? Is there any reason it wouldn't search the other displayed columns?

Thanks for the help!!

It seems to search only the name field.

Worth making a request through Help > Send Feedback ...
