Shortcuts by Difficulty Level

Some actions are more straightforward, while some take a bit to learn about and implement in your shortcuts.

Browse them depending your current comfort level, then move up a level to see what else is possible next:

Simple

Simpler shortcuts that solve a problem with just a few steps – these are easier to learn from.

Average

Average shortcuts that include a bit of scripting or use of variables.

Complex

More complex workflows that solve a particular problem well.

Shortcuts by Supported Features

Some actions are more straightforward, while some take a bit to learn about and implement in your shortcuts.

Browse them depending your current comfort level, then move up a level to see what else is possible next:

Library

Your everyday shortcut that works well triggered from the Shortcuts app. This applies to almost every shortcut.

Automation

Shortcuts designed to run using Personal Automation triggers – ideally none require interaction so they work well in the background.

Widget

Helpful to use regularly from the small, medium, or tall Shortcuts widget.

Siri

Shortcuts designed with names that are easy to trigger with Siri and purposeful interaction.

Spotlight

Works well when triggered through the system-level search.

Share Sheet

Simpler shortcuts that solve a problem with just a few steps – these are easier to learn from.

Link

Works well triggered from the URL scheme, as in shortcuts://run-shortcut?name={URL-encoded name of shortcut}.

Run Shortcut

Useful as a subroutine inside other shortcuts – performs a specific function on the input and passes it as output.

Example

These shortcuts are good examples of the main action included.
