That’s exactly how I use scriptable too. I run a shortcut when I get to work, and among other things, it schedules notifications in scriptable linked to another shortcuts that I run through the day.
For example, The shortcut looks for my scheduled lunch time, pass it to scriptable that enables a notification 5 min before the lunchtime, so when the time arrives I got a notification, and then I’m able to run the lunch time shortcut.
Well… I haven’t really test the ifttt/zappier approach. I just prefer to manage it offline I think (which I do not know if it’s possible with ifttt).
I also set repeating notifications within an interval of 2, 4, 6 and 8 minutes, or until I pay attention to it, and then delete the notifications not delivered. This way I’m pretty sure that I don’t skip it. I guess that it would be possible with ifttt…
I really do believe this opens up Pushcut to a much wider audience - thank you automators forum for pushing me in this direction : )
I hope to extend this feature in the following days and weeks by
adding iBeacon support (should be quick)
adding more conditions to local triggers (see below)
snoozing and offline scheduling via x-callback URLs
local trigger conditions:
I am thinking about stuff like “Every day 7.30 PM, but only when I am at home”, or “when I leave work, but only after 1 PM” or stuff like that). I have not seen this anywhere yet, but I know exactly how I can build it - should be fun ^^
I am having difficulty with my iphone 6s and getting the list of pushcut actions to show up within ios shortcuts. On 13.1.1 now. I do not have this issue with my ipad on ipados 13. If you have any ideas for troubleshooting, that would be great. Overall I really like the app, but this has been slowing my ideas for further development, especially with my iphone being primary device.
I had to go into the ios settings for Pushcut>>Siri & Search>> enable the “learn from this app” which I think is what “enabled” them within shortcuts. Worked for a little while and then not again. Not sure if this is a shortcut donation integration issue…
it seems the new shortcuts integrations are quite flakey still. I wish I knew what is going on, but as a third-party app you just “offer” you functions and hope that the Shortcuts app will call it nicely.
Though I could never reproduce these issues, I am right now working on a “local, plain-old-file cache based” implementation of the Shortcuts actions to reduce the possibility of any funky behavior. currently, they check with the backend server if any new data is available before showing the list.
I have noticed (during development with the beta versions though), that once Shortcuts “breaks” with the integration (whatever the reason for that) - it seems to never really re-launch it. you will need to force-kill and restart Shortcuts.
the “fix” should be out later this week, and I really hope it will fix any instabilities in this area.
