I trying to add a Fantastical event with AppleScript. Aparently the Fantastical Suite is quite simple as there is only one verb.

parse sentence v : parse sentence
    parse sentence text : sentence to parse
        [notes text] : Notes to add to the event or reminder
        [add immediately boolean] : If true the sentence is parsed and immediately added to the calendar.

I've managed to parse the sentence but I unable to set the notes and add immediately parameters. Can anyone help?

I don't have Fantastical but does this work?

parse sentence "my sentence" notes "my notes" add immediately true

That does work (although the result is not what I expected in the app). Thanks – Sebastien Feb 21 '13 at 9:25
