Remember the Milk script posted Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I don't know if this answers the question, but I have a script that converts an Entourage email to an OF task and another one that does the same thing for a Mail.app email. Its not instantaneous like the RTM plugin is, but it works well enough for me.

In Entourage/Mail.app I have a rule that's:
- if from contains "notify@jott.com"
- then run applescript "send message to Omnifocus"
- mark the message as read
- file it away in a special folder

I think you can also use the Mail Pref pane in OF to do this. Under the section "Handle messages having", click "a subject starting with" and enter "(Jott to Self)". I haven't tried this, but it seems like it should work.

Scripts can be found at:

Ok. I reloaded it and tested it. Try again.

I posted a new version of the script. I hope it works for you.

Thanks SO much. I have a quick question. I think it might not work in Leopard (10.5)? When I try to run it, it says that 'classic' it's not supported. Any feedback it's appreciate it.

Thanks a lot. Martin.
 
It should work in Leopard, though I'm running 10.4.11, so I have not tested it yet. Try opening it with your Script Editor, recompiling it (if errors show up, let me know by private message), and then save it as an application. Let me know how it works.

HI MB, sorry for my delay. Somehow (among the many threads I am subscribed to) I missed your last post.

I tried opening in script editor and re-compiling. It did not work. I get a syntax error, and the text of the script once opened does not make any sense. Take a look at this screen capture. I get the sense I am doing something wrong, but not sure what...

Hi. I don't think you are doing anything wrong. It may be Leopard, but I doubt it. I've recompiled the scripts and corrected a couple of bugs that may have created problems for you. I've reloaded the scripts to my web site. Try again. If this does not work, I'll send you a text file with the script. If running the application downloaded from my web site does not work, and if the script does not work even with pasting it to the Script Editor from a text file, I'm afraid that it may be a Leopard issue. I doubt it, though. I'm pretty sure the script should work easily in Leopard. When it finishes sending the email, a window appears saying so.

Sorry that this is not working for you. It works really well for me!

Hi,
Since I don't (yet) know Applescript, I came up with a fairly simple workaround. It does rely on being able to create an alias email address. I think the steps necessary are the following (there may be an extra unnecessary one in there, but I'm sleepy at the moment. . . )

-- in Omni, set Mail to respond to "Omnifocus" and add "notify@jott.com" as a valid address.

-- that should have added a new rule in Mail called "send to Omnifocus." Change the recipient to plain vanilla "omnifocus" by simply removing the plus sign (+) since that does indeed confuse jott.

-- Go to your mail account in the sky -- in my case .Mac -- and create an alias; the name I gave it was Omni Omnifocus and an appropriate address that .mac will accept. Suzy Omnifocus should also work just fine.

-- now go to Jott and add Omni Omnifocus and whatever alias email address you have created.

-- Now, when you call Jott, just say you want to jott Omni (or Suzy, etc), and the voice will say, in my case, "Omni Omnifocus?" Since that's who the email is addressed to, the mail rule in Mail plops the text straight into Omni's Inbox.

-- I've not yet tried adding Omni Omnifocus to IWantSandy, but since I do Jott to Sandy, and that service is better at parsing natural language into calendar entries, I keep meaning to try it as a very, very roundabout way to get from my phone to iCal. Ah geek joy!

I hope this helps someone!

ciao,
Gretchen
 
Two points: one on my scripts at http://camartis.org. I fixed the problems that people were having downloading the files. It should all work now.

Second, on Jott: I'll post later when I updated the site, but I have been testing a script that allows direct transfer from a Jott message to OmniFocus. So far it works well with action items and sets the deadline from the reminder date. I really enjoy it, but I have other things I want to do with it. I'll try to update my web site with it by Monday or Tuesday (I'm leaving on a trip in a few hours).
