AS - importer for MLO (mylifeorganized) Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

as announced in this post, I was working on an import solution for mylifeorganized into omnifocus.

I now more or less proudly present an import script for that purpose.

The performance is definitely a todo item. (1300 task-lines in xml
take approx. 10 to 15 minutes)

import features:
- dates
- notes
- structure
- flagged (in case either urgency or importance > 100)
- goal (week/month/year) => sets due date to end of week / month / year

- use existing contexts in omnifocus
- use estimated time

bye Udo

gut gemacht
Hi, your script is exactly what i was looking for. I'm new to scripts though and wondering the steps i'm meant to take to use it;

1. export entrie outline of mlo to ".xml"
2. run your script with the exported mlo.xml

Two issues though;
1. Midway through running the script, I get the error can't get folder "inbox_mlo" of defaulot document - 1728
2. Once finished, it says "export transfer completed" but i can't find the transfered data anywhere in omnifocus. Am i missing something?

Hi Johnjj,
I'm running into the same problem kih305 did. If you get a chance, would you mind letting us know what you think the problem is?

you just need to create a folder "inbox_mlo" in the library folder (upmost level)
Then the script can add all the projects/actions into this folder.

That should be it.

Has anyone used this recently? I am on MLO 3.x Standard and want to try moving over to Omnifocus.. I see this thread is from last year tho...
It would be absolutely brilliant if we could turn this into sync between the two apps.

it's been a while I checked the forum, but really like to see
the interest in the script.

To answer to the latest post - the performance of apple script
is really a pain. Since I'm now using my business laptop more
and more I'm using MLO most of the time and keep business
and private projects seperate.

technical wise:
MLO has some other information in it's xml-file then OF has.
To keep the sync the a solution would be to add that to the notes
field in OF. But it would be just a hack.

let me know if there is someone who has interest in working
on that too.

regards Udo
