Copy OmniFocus Item URI to Evernote

Shared By: r.izumita

Description

Originally posted on CAPH Tech (Note: Website is Japanese / 日本語), this script will copy a link to the currently selected task/project/folder in OmniFocus to a new note item in Evernote.

If the item is a part of a OmniFocus Project, the script will add the Project name as a tag — creating one if none currently exists!

The Code

tell front window of application "OmniFocus"
    try
        set theTrees to selected trees of content
 
        if (count of theTrees) < 1 then
            set theTrees to selected trees of sidebar
        end if
 
        if (count of theTrees) < 1 then
            return
        end if
 
        set theSelection to value of item 1 of theTrees
 
        if class of theSelection is folder then
            set theURI to "omnifocus:///folder/" & id of theSelection
            set theNote to ""
        else if class of theSelection is project then
            set theURI to "omnifocus:///project/" & id of theSelection
            set theNote to ""
        else
            set theURI to "omnifocus:///task/" & id of theSelection
            set theNote to note of theSelection
            set theProjectName to name of containing project of theSelection
        end if
 
        set theName to name of theSelection
 
        tell application "Evernote"
            set newNote to create note with text theURI & return & theNote
            set title of newNote to theName
            set source URL of newNote to theURI
 
            if (count of theProjectName) > 0 then
                if (not (tag named theProjectName exists)) then
                    make tag with properties {name:theProjectName}
                end if
 
                set theTag to tag named theProjectName
                assign theTag to newNote
            end if
 
            open note window with newNote
            activate
        end tell
    end try
end tell

    This is a great script and works well. One thing it doesn’t do is leave a live link back to Omnifocus from Evernote. The link is there — in the Evernote note — but the link isn’t active. Is there any way to make it link back to Omnifocus?

    thanks
