The best shortcuts help us get things done, faster: Show us your best multi-step shortcuts for designer and developer productivity.
A multi-step shortcut is composed of multiple actions, often from different apps. The best multi-step shortcuts can be used across platforms, helping people to quickly get things done, often without even needing to open an app. These sorts of shortcuts are a perfect fit for macOS, and now that the Shortcuts app is on the Mac, we want to know how you plan to use your shortcuts to simplify tasks, remove complexity, or just make things in your life easier.

WWDC 21 Challenge: Design multi-step Shortcuts
Begin the challenge
We’re challenging you to share your favorite multi-step shortcuts for designer and developer productivity. Ideally, these shortcuts should meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Does it employ multiple steps in a novel or interesting way?
- Does it have a great experience both when used with a tap or click and when used with Siri?
- Is it uniquely useful on the Mac?
- Extra credit if the shortcut is fun or enjoyable!
You can create an entirely new shortcut for this challenge, or nominate one you’ve already created. Share your shortcut with the developer community on the Developer Forums.
Meet Shortcuts for macOS
Shortcuts is coming to macOS, and your apps are a key part of that process. Discover how you can elevate the capabilities of your app by exposing those features as Shortcuts actions. We’ll show you how to build actions for your macOS apps built with Catalyst or AppKit, deploy actions across platforms, publish and share shortcuts, and enable your app to run shortcuts from other apps. We’ll also take you through how Shortcuts fits in with existing Mac automation technologies like Automator and AppleScript.
Design great actions for Shortcuts, Siri, and Suggestions
Actions are the building blocks of shortcuts. They allow people to take advantage of your app’s functionality even when they’re not looking at your app’s interface. We’ll show you how to design actions that are useful, easy-to-use, and can be incorporated into powerful multi-step shortcuts. You’ll also explore enhancements around publishing and sharing shortcuts, ensuring that people can access your app in the way they want across all of Apple’s platforms.
