A quick look at how I’m using the action button on my Apple Watch Ultra.

  • Get Focus Mode
  • If Focus Mode is Fitness
    • Start Dance Workout with an Open Goal
    • Stop Shortcut

Hm, I wonder if I can modify that for my package delivery focus. - Turn off Mute Unknown Callers…

@rosemaryorchard Neat! I probably shoud build a shortcut for me when I go cycling. (But I opted for an 8 from the 4, I’m not that heavy of a Watch user.)

@odd How are you muting unknowns? The “silence unknown callers” setting or something in Focus? I have been hoping Apple would let us flip “silence unknowns” somehow.

@mcg Oh, I just wasn’t sure what it was in English. Silence unknown callers is what I meant. I wish that could be set per focus mode, but until then, maybe a shortcut can fix it(?)

@odd As far as I know, Shortcuts can’t (un)set that. The best I’ve been able to do is have a shortcut to open settings to that option. Then manually toggle.

@mcg Ok, I might have to settle for that. I did give Apple feedback about this just before they shipped iOS 16, hoping someone actually read it.

@rosemaryorchard OK, I’m fanboy-ing a little right now. @RosemaryOrchard actually replied! Gonna set this up right now. Thank you!

@rosemaryorchard The “Get Focus Mode” action is iOS 16.1 onwards, but you could do time of day or similar as a proxy until that’s out :)

@rosemaryorchard Ahh. Just realizing I couldn’t find it. That makes sense.
