Omni Automation: Append/Prepend Text to Task Name

Context

From time to time, I need to add a series of similar tasks to OmniFocus which begin or end with the same word(s) or phrase(s).

For example, I might have a list of questions to complete for university that looks like this:

But of course I would like to add some more information so that, when looking at these tasks in other perspectives, I have more context than just the question number.

Solution

I have written an Omni Automation script for OmniFocus that allows me to quickly and easily prepend or append text to a series of selected tasks. You can see it in action below:

The Script

The plugin file can be download from GitHub here. At that link you will find instructions for installing the plugin.
