Complete and Await Reply Script

May 21, 2014

Just in time for the launch of OmniFocus 2 for Mac, here’s an update to my Complete and Await Reply script.

This script marks a selected action as complete and creates a new action, like the selected one but prefixed with “Reply on:” and placed in your Waiting For context. It’s great for email and other actions where you expect a reply but want to make sure you don’t forget to follow up if the reply doesn’t come.

There are lots of changes and improvements to this script beyond OmniFocus 2 support.

to make the new task due in 3 days.


To install the script in OmniFocus 2 for Mac, choose Help → Open Scripts Folder. Drag the Complete and Await Reply file into the scripts folder. You can then use Customize Toolbar to add the script to the toolbar in OmniFocus if you like.

Share and enjoy!

(And drop me a note @curtclifton on Twitter to let me know which script you’d like me to update next.)
