The Hit List Application Custom Scheme

The Hit List allows to use a custom URL scheme. This is very useful when I creating a new task by another application.
In this post I describe how to apply this Hit List functionality to my project. Below you can see how to use it on the kanban card to create the refill task for the kanban battery organizer.
Recently I build the kanban battery organizer. And I have used the Hit List custom URL scheme to create the inventory refill reminder task. More details on the battery organizer you can see on the video below.
