This is a repository of the automated systems I use to enhance OmniFocus. If you find errors or would like to contribute to these, feel free to send me a pull request.

Which Files?

In each of the directories you'll find two versions of the script - .scpt and .applescript. In order to run them from OmniFocus, you'll want to use the .scpt version. The .applescript format is purely there so you can view the code online.


This is a launch agent designed to automatically parse the inbox of OmniFocus behind the scenes. You can email into OmniFocus and have it automatically parsed into the correct project and context. It can even have due dates, defer dates, flags, and estimated time.

To use it, you simply need to create a string that is to be parsed and pass it to the OmniFocus inbox. You can learn more about creating the string for this here.

Daily Task Report

I like keeping a log of the work I've done every day. And since I keep all of my work in OmniFocus, it only makes sense to automatically create a report off of yesterdays completed tasks. That's exactly what this script does.

Read Book Tasks

I read books on a schedule so I needed a quick way to create tasks for how much to read in a day. This script adds these tasks automatically after asking a handful of questions about the book and your timeframe. You can learn more about it here.

Task Shuffle

I've found that reviewing my idea lists generates more and new ideas if I can shuffle the tasks within a given project. So that's what this does. Select a project or projects and run this script to shuffle the tasks within each project.

Update Reviews

If that flag beside the Review perspective drives you crazy, this is for you. You can set dates for your scheduled reviews and move the Next Review Date of each project forward to the next instance of your reviews. You can learn more about it here.

Weather Activation

This is one of the more involved scripts I use. It will activate or deactivate a project in OmniFocus based on tomorrow's weather forecast. The project will go from On Hold to Active if it's being activated. It will go from Active to On Hold if deactivated.
