I’m caught up in the Cult of iOS Automation: a user of Drafts5, Workflow, Things3, Pythonista, etc.
The past couple days, I was working with Drafts and Things, trying out the various approaches in the Action Directory to feeding Things from Drafts. It’s not easy to remember specific syntax; I’m sure it becomes second nature after using a standard set after a short while. (I created a Keyboard Group with an “Add Text” action for each of the various inputs which solved having to keep looking them up.)
Why not just do it directly in Things? How could I ever have something in Drafts that would be auto-formatted to serve feeding Things without following all the special formatting rules. Why not just use split screen drag and drop to add tasks or just typing directly into Things when creating Projects, Lists and Areas, adding tags, etc.
Does anyone have tasks, projects, etc that don’t require manipulation to send to Things?
Drafts to Things automation is starting to seem silly to me.
