I’m really proud to share the Action group I made to add your drafts to things. This is a group that I’ve personally been using and refining for about a year now.
I’ve been disappointed in the past with script-heavy Things actions that rely on parsing your draft for due dates, projects, etc, and usually require you to use very specific syntax. This group has none of that. This is focused on taking the content of your draft and quickly putting it into a place in Things. Need to do this thing today? Just hit the “Today” action. Need to do on a specific date? Choose “Pick a Date,” and type when it needs to be done.
This is very tailored to how I use Things. For instance, there’s an “Add to Work” action and an “Add to House” action that assumes you have those projects or areas in Things. If you don’t, your to-do will simply land in the inbox. Those are really meant to be customized to choose the projects or areas you add things to the most.
The “Pick a Project” action is the most complicated one, and assumes you have a Draft with a list of projects that matches that of things. This was super tricky for me to build, and I relied a lot of the Drafts community to help making it. Thank you!
Anyway, hope some Drafts/Things users find this one useful.
