Job $$ : Apple Script to backup each context separately Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello,


I need a simple apple script which open the software“OmniFocus” and export each “subcontext” as a csv file.

Right now I have to click on each subcontext, click onfile-> export which takes a lot of time. I want to automate the processusing apple script.

I already have a script which open Omnifocus, and export everything.


Best Regards

Here is a rough draft with which you are welcome to experiment

Code:
-- Export tasks of each Omnifocus context to a separate .csv text file on the User Desktop
-- Ver 0.01
-- Copyright ©2010 Robin Trew, UK. All rights reserved.

property pOutPutFolder : path to desktop
-- property pFolderName : "OFContexts "
property pstrHeader : "Task ID,Type,Task,Project,Context,Start Date,Due Date,Completion Date,Duration,Flagged,Notes" & return
property pDblQuote : "\""
property pDbldblQuote : "\"\""
property pComma : ","
property pType : ",Action"

on run
	set lstContextTree to ContextTasks()
	WriteContextFiles(lstContextTree)
end run

on WriteContextFiles(lstContextTree)
	if length of lstContextTree > 0 then
		repeat with oContext in lstContextTree
			set {strContextName, lstContextChiln, lstTasks} to oContext
			if length of lstTasks > 0 then
				set lngTask to 1
				set strCSV to pstrHeader
				repeat with oTask in lstTasks
					set {strTaskName, lstTaskChiln, strProject, strContext, dteStart, dteDue, dteDone, lngMins, blnFlagged, strNote} to oTask
					
					set strCSV to strCSV & (lngTask as string) & pType & WrapQuote(strTaskName) & WrapQuote(strProject) & WrapQuote(strContext)
					if dteStart is not missing value then
						set strCSV to strCSV & WrapQuote(dteStart as string)
					else

					if dteDue is not missing value then
						set strCSV to strCSV & WrapQuote(dteDue as string)
