One action shortcuts from Rosemary Orchard.

I can’t tell you how much Shortcuts has automated in my work…actually I can. Every time I am on macOS and don’t have Shortcuts I feel handicapped. There are a very few things that macOS is better for. Browsing CSS selectors in web developer tools being one of them.

Today I automated 5 different project builds in Things so that I can hit one master Shortcut and then pick the type of project I’m building. Shortcuts will take care of the 10 items I need to create in Things and only ask me for relevant information.

This week I also automated:

  • posting via Working Copy to my site
  • Building my Friday email, and the blog post that goes with it

I’ve got a list of four or five other things that need automating so I can be as lazy as possible.
