Generate Markdown of Drafts – V 0.1

Create a new draft with metadata list of all the drafts in the selected workspace.

This action (created with the help of ChatGPT) generates a markdown list of all drafts in the selected workspace. It offers:
1. Display Options: “Card” or Table View
2. Sort Options: Modified (Descending or Ascending), Created (Descending or Ascending), or Alphabetically (A–Z)
3. Group Option: Group Flagged drafts at the top
4. Configurable Default Options: You can set your own default options for the category, output format, sort by, and group.
