Hi all - struggling with an action that takes a draft, (1) sends the contents to a Bear list; (2) adds some text to the draft before (3) sending a task to Things. I have this set up and it works just perfectly on Drafts for Mac, but the iOS version fails on the third step, sending to Things. Wasn’t sure whether to post the action or just show the steps…I do know that the first two steps add to Bear and add the text to the draft work. When I look at the action log, it basically says unable to open the URL.
Attached is the output of the action log - to make it a little shorter, I replaced the UUID of the Bear note with “UUID” and the title of the book to “The Book”
Opened Callback URL: bear://x-callback-url/add-text?id=UUID&mode=prepend&text=2020-09-20:%20The%20Booka&x-success=drafts5-callback-ignore://ignore/UUID&x-cancel=drafts5-callback-ignore://ignore/UUID&x-error=drafts5-callback-ignore://ignore/UUID&x-source=Drafts
Script step completed.
Unable to open URL: things:///add?title=Book%20report%20on%20The%20Book&when=tomorrow&list=personal
The strange thing to me is how this works fine on the Mac version, but fails on the iOS version.
So just making an action with the Things URL (as copied and pasted from above) works just fine. I think this means the URL form is fine. When putting that same URL in the three step action, and not even using the [[draft]], it gives me the same error as above. What I can’t understand is why it works on a stand-alone basis, but doesn’t work as part 3 of a 3 part action.
Here is the link to the action (I left out the UUID of the Bear note, it is just in as [[UUID]]):
(LINK REMOVED - MESSAGE IF YOU NEED IT…)
Thanks for any help here…
EDIT: Things is absolutely installed on the device! I have a Drafts action that I use a dozen times a day using a similar URL to add items to Things.
EDIT 2: I can paste that URL in Safari on iOS and it adds the task to Things.
