I’m just getting my workflow integrated. Which is another way of saying I don’t have much experience with drafts other than as a way to capture text quickly and efficiently.
I’ve started keeping a log using drafts. My daily log is formatted using markdown like this:
- H1 day and date
- H2 ToDos: a list of all the tasks I accumulate over the day formatted with a dash and then brackets and followed with the actual task
- H2 meeting title or project: with notes from that meant to recall my reaction and/or record what I actually did during the project work
I’d like to process my marked todos into Todoist with an action. I’ve tried various actions from the gallery – process meeting notes, list unchecked tasks.
I first I got the satisfying green bar indicating everything worked but no tasks showed up. I check, I tried tests. Nothing.
So I deleted all the Todoist actions and started again. Now I don’t even get the satisfying green bar.
I tested my general ability to run an action – I’ve moved notes to bar, shared them with the share menu, and sent markdown to devonthink.
I’m confident that I’m just making a straightforward, simple, and obvious mistake but I can’t figure out what it is. I’d appreciate any pointers as to what the issue is so that I can resolve it.
PS – In case it’s helpful the broader work process I’d like to get to is importing a daily agenda from Fantastical into drafts and then have the note pre-formatted in the way described above. Then at the end of the day send tasks to ToDoist and send send the notes section to Tinderbox so I can explode them into separate blocks.
