TIP: Append to running lists with the "Add to list" action


#21

No heading so that’s not a problem but some idea of how to modify the script to prepend would be good.

Thanks!

I updated my tweaked version of this action:

  • new Add option to append or prepend items to a list.

  • Collect list names from tagged drafts.

  • Create new lists inside the action.

Can you add in the description and code comments that to identify a list, the set tag (e.g. lists) and ## header is required?

Thanks for the fork!

Hi - This worked great for me for a while - not sure what I did, but now when I try to add something to a list, it creates a NEW list whose only item is the Draft just acted upon…
Any thoughts what might be causing this? I’m suspecting it may have something to do w the fact that the old lists have been archived; so when I go to add to them, it creates a new list in the Inbox; however, I don’t want the lists sitting in my Inbox… but rather out of sight, out of mind…
Any help would be welcomed!

The action is only looking for list drafts in the inbox.

I have a tweaked version of the action that has a few additional features. I updated it to look in the inbox, flagged, and archive which might work for you.
