When an instance of an OmniFocus repeating task has a tag, and that instance is completed, the next instance of the task will also have the tag. Depending on the tag in question, this may not be the desired outcome. In this post, I consider some Omni Automation approaches to help us get the results we want.
I finally had a little more time over the last month to dig into some Omni Automation development, with some substantial work on the Move to Action Group and Agendas plug-ins underway. There is more to come on these! Move…
Amidst the chaos of moving, I recently had the opportunity to chat with Andrew Mason over at The Omni Show.
I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to talk all things OmniFocus, “productivity”, and life in general.
A summary of OmniFocus Plug-In updates for the month of March, including new ‘Work On…’ and ‘Tag Tasks Due Today’ plug-ins, a major rewrite of my ‘Scheduling’ and ‘Custom Complete’ plug-ins, and a variety of bug fixes and small improvements.
I joined Tim String at Learn OmniFocus for a live workflow session, and had a great time talking all things OmniFocus and Omni Automation. Video recording available here.
I consider some of the overarching principles I try to keep in mind as I iterate on my OmniFocus set-up.
A quick look at how I’ve set up my project list in OmniFocus, including naming conventions, folder hierarchy, and action groups.
An in-depth look at the many tags I use in OmniFocus to manage constraints and optional conditions, group tasks together, and work with dates.
How I use ‘macro-context’ tags to filter the tasks in my dashboard view down to just those I want to act on right now.
We run through some simple, quick automations to remove some friction from the process of working with my OmniFocus ‘dashboard’ set-up, with a little help from Keyboard Maestro and Alfred.
