Automating the creation of pipeline tables?

Idea

Hi all

I use pipelines to manage my tasks, and I was wondering if there was any way I could create a 4 across table that had dates for sixth months filled in on the left column, a blank 2nd column, `TO POST` filled in on the 3rd column, and an empty fourth column.

I was thinking about using the app called Workflow on iOS to do this, but I'm not sure how to and if there are any better ways to do it.

Thanks in advance!

I'd be interested in seeing the Workflow script.  I'm able to create and populate a table using Applescript on my Mac

Regarding your task data.  I store each task as a separate note, and use the reminder feature for start/completion dates.  

You might find Evernote's Top List view useful (Mac/Win).  It's a table, and allows column selection

I mean I'd like to create a table like this:

Whenever I run the Workflow/script. I'd like the dates, and status columns to be filled out. I use Windows, and iOS, and is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, these days I'm restricting my programming to Applescript on my Mac

Workflow on IOS looks interesting, but it's limited

Just for the record I'd suggest Airtable as an option - it's a programmable spreadsheet that could generate a new table with headings and settable dates...but you'd have to copy and paste the result into Evernote,  or paste a link to the table.

Tried out Airtable, never really liked it. The workflow I'm using is perfect for me. :)

Good post about the Pipelines, have not seen that method before. It sure looks like a nice visual for sure to see your outstanding tasks.
