Tim's Text Modifications Actions Group
The WordPress Actions here are extremely useful.
Create a pre-defined packing list in Things. You will first be prompted for a Trip Name, Note, and a date of when the packing needs to be completed. Sends a project to Things, broken up by areas. Uses a modified version of Send to Things by Tyler Eich.
Useful action keys and their associated duplicate actions that can be copied to other action groups. Duplicate actions are denoted with a prefix of “ ⸁ “ in the action.
Create a single task to Reminders with a note to a specific list from a prompt (no draft required).
Creates a reminder with a link back to the draft, setting a due date and time for the reminder.Note: This can use the following apps: Reminders, GoodTask, Things, Todoist, and OmniFocus.
As Tim mentioned, potentially not safe for work or around children.
