    Shortcuts evolved out of the Workflow app.
    Share Sheet Shortcuts – “Edit any Web Page” is useful.
    Menus! “Walking Menu”, “Day Menu”, “Weekend Menu” etc…
    “Run Script over SSH” – supports SSH keys! If you use a centralized .ssh/authorized_keys then just add this one to .ssh/authorized_keys2 on most systems.
    Log Stand Hour – add a 1 minute walking workout to a previous hour with 0 calories.
    Shortcut on watch faces, and then schedule watch faces to change using a Personal Automation.
    Shortcuts to MS Office documents – use the “Open URL” action. Get the share link for your office document (e.g., the link you’d share to your collaborator) and then use the following url scheme: ms-excel:ofe|u| full documentation (ofe = open for editing, ofv = open for viewing)
    Charty (iOS app) = data visualization using Shortcuts. Charty
    Reddit Sub-Reddit on Shortcuts is full of ideas.
    Charty. Plot data from Shortcuts
