Send WhatsApp Message Without Saving Contact Using iOS Shortcuts
One of the most annoying parts of WhatsApp is that you have to add a phone number into your contacts first to be able to send a message to that number. When you are doing house searching or selling something and have to message number of random numbers, this quickly fills up your contact data with junk My v1.9 shortcut that I built Allows you to WhatsApp any number without adding them into your contacts The Workflow is smart so you can customize the country code in the parameter. By default I have set it to 65 which is country code for +65 (Singapore). When you first install the shortcut, it will ask you for your country code. If you have a phone number in your clipboard the workflow will give you a choice to use that phone number or enter a new number You can run it as a widget or add to your home screen as you see fit The latest version now allows you start WhatsApp chat from the iOS share sheet as well Enjoy ! Ps. This requires iOS 12 or above of course as you need shortcuts app!

Prefferably a separate folder in your notes app. I got this idea from myself. I sometimes talk to myself especially during the pandemic and aome of those things i say are worth writing down but i never have the time to type them in by hand as i speak so this will definitely help me. And i hope some of you will find it helpful as well. Tip: edit the dictate settings in this shortcut to the language you use before using the shortcut.

Shopping List Alert at Multiple Locations
Make a shopping list that will alert you at multiple locations. iOS Reminders doesn’t support alerts for multiple locations for one reminder, so this shortcut takes your dictation and creates multiple reminders, each with a different location. It will then run through your reminders list to see if you have checked any reminders as completed, and it will remove the remaining duplicates automatically.
Convert Chinese (Traditional/Simplified)
If you are a Chinese (or speak Chinese language), this helps you to convert any Chinese Text into their counterparts (Traditional to Simplified or vise vesa). Just copy any Chinese text then say to siri "convert chinese", Siri will save the converted result in clipboard. Why? beacause 'Convert to' button on iOS only shows up when editable text is selected and for some reasons, sometimes it doesn't show up at all.
This shortcut allows you to translate anything on your clipboard to multiple languages at the same time ( default is English, Japanese and German. Please modify the shortcut to suit your personal needs), without asking you 'pick a language'. Then it ask you if you need to save the specific result to clipboard.
OmniFocus Templates with (or without) Relative Dates
This shortcut allows you to generate new projects or action groups within OmniFocus from templates you set up within OmniFocus. You do not need to get involved with TaskPaper, and get to keep your templates inside OmniFocus where you are free to revise them at will without babysitting TaskPaper templates in some other app. Personally, I keep all my templates in a top-level projects folder called “Templates,” but because the trigger for this shortcut is using the share sheet from a template, you can keep them wherever you’d like in your OmniFocus project hierarchy. (It doesn’t even matter whether you prefer your templates to be projects or action groups.) There are two conventions your templates should adhere to: 1. Any variables you would like the shortcut to offer to replace should be formatted as <>. These can be in any text fields: task names, tags, notes, etc. Anywhere <> if found, the shortcut will replace it with what you specify when asked. (If nothing formatted this way is found in the template, the shortcut will not prompt you.) 2. If your template contains defer or due dates, the shortcut will prompt you for a predicate date*. If you do not wish to process these dates, merely select “Okay” and the default answer provided will ensure your dates are left alone. (If no defer or due dates are found, the shortcut will not prompt you.) *Predicate dates are where things get fun. This is a date which is ‘ground zero’ for the template. All the dates in the template will be processed to center on this date while preserving their relative distance to one another. For example, one could set up a template with a set of tasks with a variety of defer and due dates having to do with the first visit with a client. One task might be deferred until that appointment date, another might be due a week later, and one might need to be done three days prior! Predicate dates allow you to plug in this ‘ground zero’ date and the shortcut will process all dates to center there. Here’s how it works: You set up your templates as if the ground zero date is 01/01/2045 12:00 AM. (This date was used simply because picking a date much further out caused Shortcuts not to recognize it as a date.) I like to label my templates as something like “New Client (Predicate date: first session).” So, for a task I want to be due by the client’s first session, in the template that task should be due 01/01/2045 at 12:00 AM. If there is a task I’d like to defer until a week after the first session, in the template it would be 01/08/2045 at 12:00 AM. And so on. When the shortcut prompts you for a predicate date, it first gets the time between that date and 01/01/2045 at 12:00 AM. It then applies that difference to all dates within the template, moving all of them by the same amount so that they are predicated on the date specified while remaining identically spaced in relation to each other. What was three days apart in the template remains three days apart in the output. (I even have a few templates whose predicate date is the current date and time.) To trigger the shortcut, navigate to your template inside OmniFocus, whether it is a project or an action group. Use the share sheet to send it to this shortcut. As previously described, it will prompt you for a variable name and/or predicate date if these are relevant (if it detects any <> or dates). The shortcut offers to output the processed template to your OmniFocus Inbox (as an action group), an existing Project (as an action group), a project Folder (as a project), or the top-level projects folder (as a project). Your original template remains where it was, unaffected and ready to be called upon whenever it is needed again.
