Adding Contact Information to Tasks Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
OmniFocus is a great program, but I was wondering if there is a way to attach the contact information from my iPhone addressbook to an OmniFocus task? Has anyone done this?
 
It would appear that the only way to do this is to manually paste the phone number into the notes field of an action/task. It would be better, to my mind, if there was integration with the Contacts app.
 
Perhaps worth prodding Apple to create a URL scheme for Contacts.

There are already the sprouts of a URL scheme for Mail messages, (possibly a circuitous route to Contact details) but you still have to generate the URL on a Mac.

e.g. to copy the URL of the first currently selected message in OS X Mail:

Code:
tell application id "emal"
	tell front message viewer
		set lstSeln to selected messages
		if lstSeln ≠ {} then
			set strURL to "message://%3c" & message id of item 1 of lstSeln & "%3e"
			set the clipboard to strURL
		end if
	end tell
end tell
