Thanks to suggestions from several users we managed to pull it off and finally offer you “official” Nozbe Bookmarklet and Nozbe Applescripts. These will come in handy especially now, when you’re browsing lots of web sites for Xmas shopping or when you’re processing lots of Email (who isn’t?).
What is a Bookmarklet? What is an Applescript? Why are they all so cool?
Watch this video and see how these small widgets can help you add actions to Nozbe from virtually everywhere:
To access your Bookmarklet and your Applescripts, just go to your “Settings” and you’ll find them there.
What is the Bookmarklet good for?
- remembering a web site (the [LINK] of the site you’ve added the action from gets saved)
- remembering something to shop later
- adding stuff to Nozbe while browsing any page (including Facebook :-)
- processing Gmail email messages (unique link to each messages is saved with the action from the Bookmarklet – see video)
- ... and you can use Nozbe’s natural language and action parameters
Impotrant: Your Bookmarklet is yours only. It’s got your API code embedded into it, so unless you want people adding stuff to your Nozbe account, keep it only on your personal browsers. While we realize it might be less secure this way, but thanks to this solution, you don’t need to be logged in to add stuff to Nozbe. The upside? Entire bookmarklet works via SSL secure connection so when you add actions to Nozbe, they are encrypted.
Bookmarklet should work across all the browsers and all the systems. Just drag it to your Bookmarks bar and you’re good to go.
And the Bookmarklet is really pretty:
Applescripts configuration is for more geeky Mac users but I’ve provided a handful PDF that should help you configure those.
What are the AppleScripts good for?
- Email-to-Action script is great for processing email. The entire contents of the message is being copied to the action comment with a link to the mail message in Apple Mail! (see video) – it’s basically an easier way of doing this
- Add Action to Nozbe script is great for adding tasks from anywhere on your Mac. New thought? Just use a handy keybaord shortcut, write it and done! Fire-and-forget simple. (watch the video for more examples and walktrhough)
I’d like to especially thank Brian Tait (Bookmarklet idea) and Mark Anning (for sending his Applescripts) and Michael Hyatt for encouragement and testing… as well as other users for testing and contributions. When was the last time I told you guys that you rocked? You really rock and we love preparing goodies like these for you all :-) Enjoy!
