Quick Access to DEVONthink with Workflow for iOS

February 01, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

While I really like DEVONthink for iOS, I'm frustrated by the lack of shortcuts and user editable smart lists. I can't do much about the lack of smart lists, but Workflow gives me a very easy way to configure launchers for my most used DEVONthink documents and folders.

Workflow Shortcuts

The entire workflow is just three actions long. The first action is just a dictionary with a nickname and a URL to the location in DEVONthink.


And if you sync Workflow and DEVONthink across iOS devices, this same workflow works on all devices. The unique item links in DEVONthink are consistent across devices.
