I understand that you can Hook a link to create a new Note but why isn’t it possible to use the same logic to hook a link to a new task in say 2do or Omnifocus? Is there like a script to make this possible? I find myself more likely to create tasks out of bookmarks/links than I am to create notes…
You can do exactly that in OmniFocus.
Ah I see… So you could create tasks in GTD software… it’s just that 2do is currently not supported.
Looks like it should be possible with the x-callback-url scheme. Maybe that didn’t exist when they added the current limited support for 2do. Do you know enough to try writing your own script?
I’d love to see this for Things 3!
Things is fully supported — do you maybe just need to copy the scripts across for a Things3 entry?
I am unsure we are talking about the same feature, I must have misunderstood.
I’d like Hook to autofill a Things 3 quick entry. For example, I am in the browser, fire a hotkey and boom Hook generates a link, triggers Things 3 quick entry, fills the note field with the link and lets you input a title. I know there are plugins that allow you to do that, but annoyingly the Chrome plugins requires a separate shortcut and does not work system wide.
What’s the behaviour that you get at the moment when you do Hook to New… → Things?
Ah! My bad, I didn’t know that was possible. Thanks for clarifying, seems to be working as expected.
