URL scheme help

#1

Hello,

I'm simply trying to store a link to a specific GoodTask List in another app to make it easy to go directly to it. Using goodtask3://view?list=[prompt=inbox] simply takes me to the top view (Focus, in my case). Playing with exchanging the words 'view', 'list' & 'title' don't make any difference, either...

Thanks,

Mark

HI @mc1z, thanks for using GoodTask.

To move to specific list, you can use below 2 urls.

goodtask3://view?title=[prompt:Title]&view=[prompt:View]

or

goodtask3://view?section=[prompt:Section]&row=[prompt:Row]&view=[prompt:View]

title : Full title of list (case insensitive)
view (optional) : 1 (List), 2 (Day), 3 (Week), 4 (Month)

section (optional) : number of stack on list view - 1 ~
row : number of row on selected section - 1 ~
view (optional) : 1 (List), 2 (Day), 3 (Week), 4 (Month)

Thanks!

I saw that page on the help pages, but I can't figure out how to get that to work. Using the syntax you quoted, I thought the following should work:

goodtask3://view?title=[prompt:Inbox]

Is that correct? Because it just takes me to the top view (Focus, in my case)...

If you have some list named 'abc', you should use below

goodtask3://view?title=abc

If you want to go to a list that's on second section at first,

goodtask3://view?section=2&row=1

Thanks!

Ok, that did it - I had tried that, but it didn't turn into a link in OmniFocus. For some reason, I had to restart OmniFocus to get it to work. Probably because I"m using a TestFlight version - at any rate, having your specific example did the trick.

Thanks!

Mark
