Hi there all,
I am enjoying Agenda as a writing environment with the ability to schedule blog posts, newsletters etc and just open up and start working on them in my writing blocks on my calendar. The only problem is that the developers have still not implemented a basic share sheet (very frustrating!)
I just want to be able to read my RSS or Safari pages in IOS and share the Title, Highlighted text and URL into a Folder in Agenda called ‘Inbox’ for processing later. Easy to do with Ulysses but I can’t work out how to do it in Agenda -anyone know?
Or is there a way to bring Agenda functionality to Ulysses? I.e. to assign a target date to a sheet and then have it show up in chronological order in a folder?
You could do this with Drafts in the middle (which is what I do). Send the Title, Text, and URL to Drafts, then use a Drafts action to create a new note in Agenda (which has a URL scheme if not a share extension). I suppose Shortcuts might work as well for that matter, but I like to use Drafts because it pops up the note and allows me to add comments before sending off.
Thank you - yes I’ve got this going too with drafts sending nicely into a new note in my Inbox folder in Agenda - a good workaround but I keep thinking I must be missing something as to why I cant go direct to Agenda . Sounds like I’m not
The trickiest part might be the URL encoding steps. You’ll see that a lot of the text actions are “URL encoded”—this simply means converting them to a format that can be used in a URL scheme, such as by switching spaces with %20.
If you want to include selected text from the article, it’s a little tricky. If you Share selected text (e.g., select text → Share), Reeder doesn’t pass the selected text and the article link to the Share Sheet (nor would most applications).
There’s an easy workaround though: use the clipboard. If you want to do this, select the place in the text block at the bottom of the shortcut where you want to insert a quote (e.g., after ## Notes:), tap Variables, and tap Clipboard. Now when the shortcut runs, it’ll insert whatever’s currently on the clipboard in place of that variable. So copy the selected text in a given article, then share the article to this Shortcut.
