Emailing tasks to others Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I just downloaded OmniFocus yesterday and already love it! One feature that I know I will need regularly is the ability to email tasks to others. My husband often goes shopping for me and asks that I email him "the list". I used to use Appigo TO DO and this was simple. Can't find the simple solution in OmniFocus. Also, I have a project that involves many people. I'd like to email them their individual tasks without having to re-enter the info into an email. Is there an automatic way to do this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You can download an applescript which exports whatever is selected in Omnifocus' right-hand content panel to an Apple Mail plain-text message (in the Taskpaper layout).
You can send a project or a context (assuming that in the case of the delegating tasks to others you've got a context for each of them) by going to File>Print and then choosing the PDF button on the lower left and choosing Mail PDF.

Thanks for the idea.
