When I view an email, I want to be able to create a reminder based on some information in the email so I can act on it later. I’m using the standard iOS Mail app. Currently, I have a Shortcut that accepts input from the clipboard (I select and copy the subject line) and it creates a reminder on a specific list. Then, I flag the message so I can find it later without having to scroll through my email.
This works fairly well but I think it could use some improvement. It’s not as streamlined as I would like for it to be. This is my wish list:
- Easily access the sender field to add more info to the reminder itself.
- Automagically gather the info I wanted without manual interaction of the select and copy.
- Flag the email for later reference. Or, can I store a link to the email in the Notes section of the reminder?
I installed Scriptable to see if it can address some of these requirements. I only see one item for Mail, which sends an email.
I’m looking for suggestions on how to approach this.
