There are times I am given a list of names of people that I need to schedule appointments for in our organization. The names are typically given first, and then details come later.
I would like to create a capture buffer where I can quickly capture the names line by line, and then process the list of names with the types of appointments that need to be created. Is there a way to do this in org-mode?
Create a capture buffer for capturing a vector of appointments:
C-c c a v
Enter the following list into the capture buffer:
John Deere Adam Smith Jane Doe
Execute function to pre-process buffer into the following format before saving to target:
* John Deere ** NEXT Schedule appointment for John Deere to meet with board of directors SCHEDULED: <2000-01-01> ** TODO Add John Deere to Board of Directors agenda * Adam Smith ** NEXT Schedule appointment for Adam Smith to meet with Mr. Robins SCHEDULED: <2000-01-01> ** TODO Add Adam Smith to Mr. Robins' calendar ** TODO Verify meeting with Adam Smith and Mr. Robins occurred * Jane Doe ** NEXT Schedule appointment for Jane Doe to meet with board of directors SCHEDULED: <2000-01-01> ** TODO Add Jane Doe to Board of Directors agenda
