When I click on a Hook link to open an Omnifocus task, it opens in that project. My most common “project” is “Single Task”, use really just for 1 time tasks. But they may be recurring, and typically I’d have a hook link in the note field to hook back to the other app.
So typically, when clicking on a link that will open in OF, it opens in this very long list of tasks that are in my “Single Task” project. That active task is also in my most used perspective, TODAY. I would love for it to open in the TODAY perspective, instead of the Single Task Project.
I suspect there’s no way to do that, but any thoughts/ work arounds appreciated!
Thanks very much @devynosborne and yes, was trying to see if it could show up in a specific perspective, but guess that’s not possible. That said, I’m finding that links FROM OF to an email, pdf, etc are way more useful for me than links TO OF, so not a big deal…
You’re welcome! I don’t have any specific resources, though the OF forums are full of invaluable info. I’m no coder, so I mostly just search forums, ask in forums, and Google – and then hack things together. Most likely, someone else has tried what you want, or pieces of what you want.
I actually recently asked something similar. I consider myself a bit of a power user, but this one stumped me. I hope they implement it someday!
I’ve found enormous value in the script included with Hook to link to a Mail message**. I previously did this with macOS Scripts, but that was a bit cumbersome. Now I simply use my Hook shortcut and get the message link. I use this all the time.
** I’m pretty sure I changed the script to the one included in this thread, which allows it to work with Apple Mail across all devices, independent of Hook.
