App to App

One of the powerful features of Omni Automation is the ability to share data between applications by using a Call and Response technique where data is retrieved from a second application to be used by the host application.

In a Call and Response scenario, a script targeting the host application is executed. This script uses the tellScript() method of the URL class to generate an Omni Automation url containing a function for extracting data from a second application. The main script then uses the call() method of the URL class to send the URL, causing the passed function to be executed by the targeted application, which returns the function result to the main script. The main script then uses the returned data in manipulating the host application.

The short video below demonstrates the concept of Call and Response:
