IOS Automation - Part 2

Date: 28th April 2017

Duration: 49:05

Show ref: SCOM0625

iOS offers less options for automation than the Mac due to sandboxing, which limits what apps can do. But there are still some powerful automation tools available if you understand how the basic building blocks work.

In Part 2 of this iOS automation series, we dive deeper into automation workflows for iOS and give you several specific examples of how to implement these yourself. We walk you through some important concepts (like setting/calling variables and using prompts for text entry), and show you step-by-step how to construct these workflows for yourself.

In this tutorial we demonstrate:

How to get around the lack of a share sheet in Mail

How to append Amazon links to an Evernote note

How to create multi-step workflows like using AirDrop to send screenshots to your Mac and then automatically delete them from your iOS device

How to integrate prompts and set variables for use in iOS automation workflows in Workflow and Launch Center Pro

How to send multiple tasks to OmniFocus from Drafts and create OmniFocus project templates in Workflow

How to use Editorial to automate writing tasks and use Python scripts inside of Editorial workflows

When it comes to getting things done, a little planning and organizing can go a long way.

In Part 3 of the GTD Productivity series, we show you how to leverage the hard work you did in capturing (Part 1), clarifying, and organizing (Part 2) into increased efficiency by utilizing your task management tools to display just the tasks you need to do, when you need to do them.

Following on from the extremely popular GTD Part 1 episode (SCOM0578), Mile Schimtz takes a look at two other important facets of the GTD system - Clarify & Organise.

Underscoring the core principal of using a trusted system as your task manager, in this case OmniFocus, Mike looks at using other applications we’ve previously covered on ScreenCastsOnline to set up reference files.

A new presenter for this week - Mike Schmitz.

Mike is a productivity wizard and takes us through some of the first principles of being productive on your Mac and iOS device - how to effortlessly capture thoughts, ideas, tasks and reference files for later action.
