Using OmniFocus to manage everything you need to do on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch? Then you'll love our new Zapier integration with OmniFocus. Using the Omni Sync Server's Mail Drop address, Zapier can add new tasks to your OmniFocus inbox automatically.

That way, you can link your online team productivity tools to your personal task list in OmniFocus, ready for you to organize and prioritize on your own. Whether you want to add tasks from a team to-do list app like Asana or Trello, create new tasks from your CRM or sales app, or just get a task added to OmniFocus when it's going to rain, Zapier's app integrations can add all of that and more to OmniFocus for you.

Here are some great apps to add tasks to OmniFocus, or check out our OmniFocus integrations page on the Zapbook to get started building your own OmniFocus automations:

How to Use This Integration

  1. Install a recent version of OmniFocus on your Mac or iOS, connect it to the Omni Sync Server, and copy your Mail Drop email address. Also make sure you have a Zapier account.
  2. Connect OmniFocus to Zapier using your Mail Drop address.
  3. Check out pre-made OmniFocus integrations.
  4. Or create your own from scratch in the Zap Editor.
