Reminders Script for DTTG and Things iOS

The Things Reminders script that is included with DEVONthink Pro (Office) works nicely to format the document link with the document name in the task note field. While this works great on the Mac, this presents a challenge to using the link in Things iOS to open a document in DEVONthink To Go. Things iOS does not recognize a link with a document name as a valid link, and click on the link’s name will result in the note displaying [LINK1].

I have modified the Reminders script to also add the x-devonthink-item… link to the note field so that clicking on the link in Things iOS will open the document in DEVONthink To Go (assuming that the user has synced the linked document to DEVONthink To Go).

There is a property variable at the top of the script that will revert the script back to the default behavior if the variable is set to false.

Move the script to ~Library\Application Support\DEVONthink Pro 2\Scripts\Reminders and update the scripts from DEVONthink’s Script menu ‘Update Scripts Menu’. The script can be renamed but you’ll want to keep the script name unique from the default reminder script to keep a DEVONthink update from overwriting the script.

Works nicely! Brilliant!
