Help to make emails into tasks Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Thanks Lizard, but I don't have control over who sends this particular emails.

The colons are nicer for the iPhone because they are on the first shifted keyboard rather than the math keyboard. The project string is matched exactly as if it was entered in a project cell in OmniFocus.
To specify a context, use @ (at sign), followed by a context name or abbreviation. Like project names, the context name is matched exactly as it would be in OmniFocus.
 
Thanks Lucas,

I am not sure what do you mean by "mail tags"

Or, you could make a modified version of the script to make it go to the specific project for that particular individual.
Thanks again

Mail Tags is a plug-in extension for Mail that lets you do lots of really nifty things with mail messages, like tagging and assigning projects and due dates. The tagging feature, combined with smart folders and searches, is worth the price of admission to me.

Hi Lucas, I have Mail Tags now

I can't see how to apply it to OmniFocus? Any ideas?
