Using Postbox with Things and OmniFocus Pro

Postbox works with Things and OmniFocus to help you get more done with less effort.

To get started, please download and install the latest versions of Postbox and Things or OmniFocus.

Using Postbox with Things

To Setup Postbox to use Things, please follow these instructions in this order:

A new Things to-do can be created within Postbox by selecting some text and then:

  • selecting Things: New To-Do with Selection as Note or Things: New To-Do with Selection as Title from a contextual menu
  • selecting Services from the Postbox menu, and then Things: New To-Do with Selection as Note
  • using the keyboard shortcut: command+option+control+shift+0 to create a new to-do with the selection as a note

When you create a new Things to-do within Postbox:

  • the selected text will become the to-do title or note depending upon selection
  • a link back to the original Postbox message will be created within the note

 

Using Postbox with OmniFocus Pro

A new OmniFocus Pro to-do can be created within Postbox by selecting some text and then:

  • selecting OmniFocus: Send to Inbox from a contextual menu

When you create a new OmniFocus Pro to-do within Postbox:

  • the message subject will become the to-do title
  • the message sender will be linked along with a link back to the original message
  • the selected text will be placed into the to-do body

If you select a message in the message list, and then select OmniFocus: Send to Inbox from the contextual menu, then:

  • the message subject will become the to-do title
  • the message sender will be linked along with a link back to the original message

Note: This integration only works with OmniFocus Pro, as the regular version of OmniFocus does not support AppleScript.
