Delegated script Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I released a script useful if you often delegate tasks.
This script duplicates the selected task to a WFor context, and mark the selected as completed.

Case of use: When completing a task by delegating it to someone, and waiting for its completion.
- You've just finished the task "Mail Bob about contracts to buy some land on the Moon - Great opportunity: don't miss it" and are waiting for Bob's opinion.
- Select the task, and execute this script
=> it will duplicate the task into the WFor context, and mark the original one as completed

You can download it at:

I would love to get feedback on this script. Please contact me to tell me what you think about it, what you want in next versions...

Thank you Tim for the fixes on the applescript dictionary.

I also like to note in the beginning of those tasks "WF Bob to ... "

This has the advantage that when reviewing a project in planning mode the WFors are clearly identifiable as well as the person concerned. Also can one easily make a search in the DB even if one does not use a specific WF context per person.

I use a context per person, for all WF and other tasks.


Hi Mario,

I released the version 1.1.
It allows you to define a string that is prefixed to the duplicate.

Please let me know if it fits your needs.

Hi, I wonder if anyone has this script, as it seems to be unable to download it from Lutin anymore.
I was also thinking about a _delegate_ script.

Idea is to create an email out of the task including the
note. After sending the same will happen plus you get asked
when you want to follow-up / the due date is.

please think about it. Since you have a script already, from my
side I do not see the need any more to create one myself.

Maybe you can add this into your script.

bye Udo

I already did a mail script.
Check out the 4th post of this thread to combine the Mail and Delegated script.

The option to get asked when to follow-up is something I want to include in the Delegated script.

However, I don't know when I will be able to do it.
Feel free to edit my version!
