I’ve set up a “menu” shortcut in a complication on my Watch 5. It’s running watchOS 7.0.2 (which is the latest offered at the time of writing.)
The shortcut just has 1 menu item (for now): PCalc. This works but there’s an annoyance: I have to confirm I want the shortcut to run.
Is there a way of avoiding this confirmation prompt?
I have a Watchface with a Pcalc (Lite) complication and it works without any prompt.
Thank you. But this is running a shortcut with a menu and PCalc is one of the items in the menu. (Currently the only one but that’s a different story.)
It would seem that any shortcut complication requires confirmation. I’ll also be interested if anyone knows a way around it. If only Apple would be more consistent about giving users the option of having confirmations.
So we’re back to “is there enough in the automation to warrant it?” question.
So, the menu shortcut gives me three taps to a lot of apps, widening the easy-to-access field beyond the 1 complication spot. It’s probably just about worth it. Would eliminating the confirmation change the calculus? I actually doubt it.
But, add to that actual shortcuts that do more than launch an app and it’s well worth it. It’s just that - so far- I haven’t seen (m)any.
