OmniFocus has the ability to set a projects status to “dropped” or “on hold”. Unfortunately, it seems like this isn’t true for actions. Actions can only be set to “active” or “completed”. Can somebody please explain why? I would really appreciate it if actions would offer the same abilities that projects offer.
One or more of the postings here or a blog from Omnigroup promised that a future version of OmniFocus would include an option to put tasks on hold.
The limitation until now was, the database format of OmniFocus did not support the additional designation. Or they just had not yet gotten around to making that change. Or there was not enough demand for it.
