Auto-Flag by Context Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello, I have setup my omnifocus workflow where I use context as a priority level, so I use High, Medium and low Priority context. What I want to know is if there is an apple-script that can automatically flag all the action sthat use the context High Priority or maybe that all items that I flag automatically get that context.

I believe that could be useful as I have setup my iOS devices to use the icon badge for flagged items so every time I have a high priority item it will be represented on my home screen.

The simplest script might look something like this:

tell application id "OFOC"
	tell default document
		set flagged of flattened tasks where name of its context contains "high" to true
	end tell
end tell
or, going in the other direction which you mention:

tell application id "OFOC"
	tell default document
		set oContext to first flattened context where name = "high"
		set context of (flattened tasks where flagged = true) to oContext
	end tell
end tell
thank you. One las question how can I keep the script running in the background
You can't; you run it periodically, or as needed.
and perhaps one way of running it periodically would be with some kind of Hazel rule (as in ).

(perhaps whenever the OF cache changes, but with a few minutes lag, to avoid circularities).
I'm planing to convert the script into an aplication and then runing it every x time with lingon3 as a launchd
