I'm wanting to do something similar but on the iPad there's no way to find out what the link is. I know I can create a link on the desktop and it still works on the iPad but if I create a new Context when I'm out I can't link to it.

I suppose my questions are:

1. Can Projects/Contexts ONLY be referenced by magic ID or is there some human friendly name I can use?

2. Is there some way to determine what the magic ID is from the ipad?

3. Is there a way to trigger an OmniFocus search from a URL? (that would be a fallback position).

4. What would cause the magic ID to change? If I embedded (say) omnifocus:///task/jexW10LHv6C all over my notes in another app, would moving or renaming the context invalidate the link?
