Create to-dos with Alfred
In order to add a workflow to Alfred, you’ll first need to buy the Alfred Powerpack.
To send a new to-do to the Inbox – or directly to an existing project or area – use the + keyword. A
title is required and the other parameters are optional. Here’s the complete syntax:
+ title #tag1 #tag2 [project name/area name] ::note >duedate
Created by Cultured Code.
Create to-dos with LaunchBar
You can send to-dos to Things via the Add to Things command that’s included with LaunchBar.
Support for Other Launchers
In order for your favorite launcher app to send to-dos to Things, it must support running AppleScript. Here’s the AppleScript that it needs to run:
tell application "Things.app" parse quicksilver input q end tell
q is the string for Things to parse. Things understands the following syntax when parsing text from a launcher:
title #tag1 #tag2 [project name/area name] ::note >duedate
If you would like to suggest changes or send us a new launcher extension, plugin, or workflow, write us an email.
