Automators 43: Capture and Review

2 Likes

I really enjoy the tips and tricks that you two bring to the table.

For me, there is so much information that I can’t casually listen to the podcast any more! My mind fills up with possibilities and I have to pause it and go back. You can’t do that safely when you’re driving.

What I do now is set your podcast to not delete after I listen to it and mark it as a kind of homework to review later… Maybe I should make that a task. :slight_smile: :smile:

If that’s a common problem for people, perhaps a community driven effort to expand the show notes with more detail could be a worthwhile effort? I’ve seen that as the show notes approach for some podcasts in the past. “All” (?) it would require is a wiki and some control to avoid the Internet spammers and trolls.

I’d LOVE if something like this were to exist.

BUT.

I can’t commit to helping in that area. I’m learning to say “No”.

In this episode, David talks about how he has a shortcut that opens a specific email inbox. I have not been able to figure this out. Anyone know how this is done? Can it be done through the default mail app or would I need to use a third party app?

Was I right in hearing that Rosemary is playing with the new Javascript automation in OmniFocus?!

Oh yes you heard right!

Are there screenshots form the David’s and Rose’s homescreens somewhere? I couldn’t find them on the shownotes or chapter-art

Try…

Is there a podcast or blog post where @RosemaryOrchard talks in depth about her prompts and how that works in more depth?

There’s a blog post linked in the show notes which shows the shortcut (well it was a workflow at the time) I use and has some more detail.

whats is the app that they mention for brainstorming?

MindNode! It’s part of SetApp.

While WFH I’m trying to catch up on my podcast that I normally listen to while traveling. In this episode David mentions how he created some custom icons using SF Symbols in OmniGraffle. Does anyone know how he did it?
