Fixed a syntax errors for the trip name and added the trip name to the subsequent checklist prompt step.

Create a flexible packing list by selecting one or more categories (queries drafts with the packing tag). Processes the selected categories into a single packing list and creates a new draft. Optionally send to Reminders as a task.


  • script

    /*--- Create Trip Name Prompt ---*/
    // Trip Name Prompt
    var p = Prompt.create()
      p.title = "Enter List Name"
      p.addTextField("tripName", "Trip Name", "", {"placeholder":"Enter List Name","autocapitalization":"words","wantsFocus":true})
    // Create variable for later use
    var tripTitle = p.fieldValues["tripName"]
  • script

    /*--- Create Checklist Prompt ---*/
    // Query all drafts with tag `packing` to get category titles
    // get your category drafts
    let catTitles = []
    let drafts = Draft.query("","archive", ["packing"])
    // map them to a lookup object
    let lookup = {}
    for (let t of drafts) {
    let dTitle = t.displayTitle
    lookup[dTitle] = t
    // Checlist Prompt
    var p = Prompt.create()
    p.title = "Select Categories for "+tripTitle
    p.message = "Select one or more categories to add to your list."
    // change [] to catTitles
    p.addButton("Create Packing List")
    var success =
    var selected = p.fieldValues["categories"]
