Automators FM Siri Shortcuts Gallery

Summary

I thought it might be a cool idea to put some shortcuts here in this thread that we create and others might find helpful.

As far as I can tell, there doesn’t seem to be a way to submit to the Gallery anymore (or, I’m just not seeing it). Either way, they probably don’t get approved too quickly (or often).

Post yours below and I’ll do my best to update this thread with new ones.

Anyone else have a Shortcut they’d like to share?

2 posts were split to a new topic: Turn on the Flashlight with Siri?

Random Student Picker

Here’s one I put together today for my teaching.
There may be better ways to do this, but by entering 2 text strings (one for your timetable and one for class lists), it picks a random student for the current class or presents a menu for all classes even you don’t have a class now.
If you tap on the name it picks another student from the class till all have been picked.

It’s slow if run within the app due to screen refreshes, but quick from the widget.

Timetable format: 1=Mon,0800,0905,ClassA&2=Mon,0905,1010,ClassB
Classes format: ClassA=Andi,Anne&ClassB=Bob,Bonnie

I love that you solved the removing an item from a list problem!

Credit where it’s due, I did use @supermamon’s tip to do it :slight_smile:
I hadn’t realised the filter files action (or that you could set the variable type) until I saw that post.

Shortcut Menu
Here’s another, this time a simple automated menu to list all Shortcuts that don’t have a pre-chosen character (.) and let you run one.

It was inspired by @MacSparky’s ‘off the deep end’ idea, but then being frustrated by the slowness of running Shortcuts from the home screen. This lets me have lots of Shortcuts in the widget and not manually curate the list.
Does anyone know if the iPhone Xs runs Shortcuts from the home screen significantly faster than my 6?

Nice. I’m going to add another Filter command to mine because I have pre-pended names for categorical purposes. This will work out nicely! Thanks for sharing!
