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.
Hope this is the right place to ask: Is there a way to (fire/trigger/make happen/acknowledge) an event from an Apple Watch? I’ve been playing around with Pushcut, and I have set it up to log the comings and goings from home and work . After several days of trying to figure out why things weren’t working, I realized I did not have a Default action set up for each. That is now in place, but after several more days of testing I signed into Airtable (Pushcut -> Integromat -> Airtable) and I noticed that simply dismissing the event form the watch doesn’t cause it to perform the action. Is there a way to get it to do so? Or do I need to open my phone?
 Is there a way to do this that doesn’t require four individual notifications on Pushcut?
currently, actions (including default actions) cannot be executed from the Apple Watch.
however, I am happy to announce that the next version will come with Apple Watch support.
unfortunately, it will not be possible to run shortcuts or open URLs on the watch (simply is not doable on watchOS). however, it will support online actions and HomeKit requests directly from your wrist. Pushcut will also come with a new “run web URLs in the background” feature that will also work from you wrist (like IFTTT webhooks).
in terms of logging coming and going:
I believe Integromat comes with location monitoring built in - so for this case (if “fully automatic” is what you want), try setting it up without Pushcut in the middle.
one way of doing it with a Pushcut confirmation that does not require 4 separate notifications: you could use integromat location monitorin as trigger, have server-logic that evaluates if it is a “log-worthy” event, you can then send a Pushcut notification “Should I log this?”.
Include the details of the event as Input, and have one “Confirm with Integromat” action that will perform the actual log. I hope you can follow what I mean here.
Have you considered adding some kind of auto snooze feature? Currently I just schedule through shortcuts 3 different notifications, adding 3 minutes to the notificaction time, but it would be great if this feature could be triggered directly from Pushcuts instead.
