Hi I have an applescript that sends Outlook emails to Omnifocus - and it works when I run it manually, by clicking on and running the script.

Is there any way to do this with a shortcut without installing any 3rd party apps?

Thanks in advance.


Make a new Service using Automator.
Add your AppleScript:


Make a keyboard shortcut using System Preferences:


Keyboard shortcuts will work across applications.
