Yes, that’s right.
So to give a real world example, I have a Shortcut driven daily review that I do each morning that includes the following steps.
- Open a custom planning perspective in OmniFocus where I can see what tasks are due today and flag others that I want to accomplish today with a “today” tag
- Return to shortcuts, retrieve the tasks that are overdue, due today or flagged “today” and allow me to selectively add these to my calendar (I typically just schedule larger tasks that are due to take 30 mins or more)
I found that if I just put a Wait to Return after the first step, the shortcut would often have been killed before I returned to do the second.
So instead I moved the second set of actions to a separate Shortcut and used the Pushcut Schedule Shortcut action to run this a couple of minutes after I’d launched my OmniFocus planning perspective. This gives a notification that you can just tap on when you’re ready to run the second shortcut.
Not perfect, but it’s the best workaround I’ve found.
