I am sure I am missing something very obvious, but I am struggling to get a Things URL to work as desired.
My draft is as follows:
things:///add?title=My Task Name¬es=Some task notes&checklist-items=&when=Tuesday at 7am&deadline=Thursday&tags=MyTag&list=Work&show-quick-entry=true&reveal=true
My action consists just of a URL, where I have selected the “Open in Drafts”, and the “Encode URL tags” options, but when I run the Action I get an error.
If I create the draft and replace the spaces with a
%20, disable there URL encode option within the URL action, then the action runs fine, so it seems to something weird going on with the URL encoding.
I have read about the option to wrap the [[draft]] tag with curly brackets to force the draft to be URL encoded, but this does not seem to work.
The annoying thing is, I have had the action working fine in the past, but deleted the action, so I am having to re-create it now.
By the way, the draft is created with a TextExpander snippet, (I type “thingurl” and it takes me to Text Expander where I can fill in things like the Task name, notes, task tags. Dates,deadlines etc…
The output from Text Expander then gets dropped into my draft and I choose my URL action to create the task within Things.
I know I am close, but just need some guidance on what might be wrong.
Thanks in advance!
