Apple Mail Jott to OmniFocus AppleScript Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next

I've modified the basic AppleScript that comes with OmniFocus so that it pulls the Jott message out of the e-mail. It assumes that a single message is a single task. I even included a link back to the original e-mail. However, the link I put into the note doesn't work quite right.

Does anyone know of a way to put a link into a note processed by "parse tasks"? I include something like "Jott message: message://<>", which is the correct format for the link, but it doesn't automatically appear as a link. Worse yet, when I manually type a space after it, OmniFocus creates two links: "message://" and "". It seems to view the "<" as a separator (which may be correct from an RFC standpoint).

If I instead send the text "Jott message: <message://<>>", I manage to get the "<" included, but it also includes the first "<". The link becomes: "<message://<>".

The script is below if you'd like to try it out.
