First of all, really sorry to be (way) less present here in the past days, new baby is taking lot of time ! Of course I keep on enjoying coda, helping people when I can, and reading interesting feed of the forum, but have less time to write detailed answer in the community ! Hope you still remember me
Anyway, I wanted to share with you a workflow I’ve set for my own case, that aims to feed any of my databases with my iPhone & Siri, and a combination of todoist/make applications.
Here is my blog post about how I set that
Enjoy if so, and let me know what you think !
Quentin, still in love with coda community
That’s an awesome tip.
I’m trying to do the same on my side.
How do you set up the Siri shortcut ?
I need to add one more step after “Hey Siri”. Before entering the name of the task like this :
“Hey Siri” → “Create a Task” → “Name of the task” → “Category”
is it possible to remove the middle step ? To do it like that :
“Hey Siri” → “Name of the task” → “Category”
And just a curiosity, why not using a Todoist coda pack instead of Make ?
The step your talking about is required to indicate to siri I want to execute the action of creating a task in Todoist otherwise it won’t know which app to use if I only give the name of task
I tried Todoist pack but the modification are hard (only name but not due date for example), and I don’t need to have a mirror system. I just use Todoist as a captur tools, because every day I’ll have access to my computer to sort and manage the idea/tasks I’ve quickly captured !
But you’re right, this is clearly possible !
