Google Docs to OmniFocus setup steps
1. Select Google Docs
Click the Google Docs icon to select it as your source of tasks and events.
2. Connect Google Docs
Note: Google Docs setup requires a two-step process to 1) connect your account, and 2) authorize access to specific Docs.
Grant permission to connect TaskClone to your Google Drive/Docs account. You will authorize access to specific Docs in a later step. Be sure you're authorizing the specific Google Docs account you want to use. When you are returned to TaskClone, click "Next" to continue.
3. Select OmniFocus as your destination
Click the OmniFocus icon if visible or select OmniFocus using search field. Click “Next” button to save and continue.
4. Find your OmniFocus Email Address
Login to OmniFocus in different browser tab, locate and copy the unique email address where OmniFocus will receive and process the tasks we send. Learn more.
5. Enter Destination Email for OmniFocus
Paste unique email from OmniFocus in the Destination Email field that appears in the TaskClone setup wizard.
Click Finish button. You're now connected, but there is one more step.
7. Authorize Individual Google Documents
Because Google Docs requires granting access to each specific Doc you want us to process, we've built a simple Google Docs Add-on to make that easy from within Google Docs. Install our Google Docs Add-on just once (see instructions) and then use the add-on whenever you want to grant access to one or more Google Docs (see instructions).
