Other Languages

If your language isn’t included in the list above, you can use the guidance from Apple’s developer documentation to form commands that Siri will recognize in your language.

Note: The most important part of communicating with Siri about OmniFocus is adding the equivalent of ”…in OmniFocus” to your command. Without this, Siri won’t know where to send the command.

Siri supports four types of activities associated with OmniFocus.

Adding Projects:

Searching:

  • Accomplished using Siri’s understanding of searching for notebook items. In OmniFocus, these items include tasks (actions) and lists (projects and contexts). Modify the phrases in your language to reference the items in OmniFocus that you want to list or find.
