Best tool for creating folders in several different locations/apps

Hi there— listener but first time caller.

Revamping my productivity workflow for 2024.

I “live” in Obsidian but use Todoist for to-dos and keep active projects in folders in an active Projects folder.

What I’m looking to do is automate the following when I create a new Project.

  1. Create a new folder with “Project name”
  2. Create project in Todoist
  3. Create folder in Mail

Ideally, It would be great if links for each of these “places” could be grabbed for pasting into Obsidian. (I have Hookmark).

As my goal is to learn some rudimentary automation, I was wondering if people could point me in the right direction. Is Keyboard Maestro the right tool for this? Is this feasible without scripting, etc?


Hello @DrFierce, you are correct; Keyboard Maestro would be a great tool for this work.

I use KM to set up all of my personal and professional projects across multiple apps. Here is an example of setting up for a YouTube video:

Unfortunately, I don’t have experience with Todoist so I can’t tell you how to do that part, but hopefully knowing it is possible will help!
