I would probably recommend starting by creating a workspace that filters drafts to meet those criteria. That would likely be:
Inbox does not include flagged
End date filter enabled with related date for Today minus 7 days.
It would then be pretty easy to write either a Drafts action that processes drafts in the that inbox, or a Shortcut that could be scheduled with automations to run periodically in the background. Drafts has a “Get Drafts from Workspace” shortcuts action, and you can repeat over the drafts returned by it to archive them.
Hi thanks for the input! If I move messages to another workspace I won’t be able to see them any more though. I want to be able to see them in my list until they are archived. Also I want them to be searchable.
I use drafts a dozen times a day for quick notes and I end up with close to 100 notes sometimes. I want to keep them around for a few days. The flagged ones are notes I will come back to. any other suggestion on how to handle this? Quick notes vs notes to keep.
Ok I had no idea workspaces were basically filters. I thought they were workspaces like on Notion or similar apps.
I was able to create a workspace that includes only unflagged messages 7 or more days old, but I can’t seem to get a shortcut to work. Here’s what I have so far - it only archives one message each time I run it. Any suggestions? Thank you!
