Since I don’t use OmniFocus archiving, I know I don’t have a full and complete understanding of the Archive functions. (I’d like to use it, but its current incarnation is not helpful to me.) The comments on this post really made me take notice though.
We’re three major versions into the product and on the heels of the newest version, but it sounds like people are still having to find workarounds to kinda sorta partway get Archive to do some of what they want. Archive seems to still not work the way some people need it to work.
Now I get that Archive is probably just fine for some people. I need the ability to Archive Now. I need to be able to select a single project for archiving. And I need to be able to archive and preserve a complete project in its then-current state - including any uncompleted tasks. In my world, some tasks will just never be completed, but I need to know that, and I need to preserve them in that state for future reference. (And yes, I have submitted this as a feature request in the past.)
To get back to my main point though, do many OmniFocus users find that you’re having to work around the way Archive functions?
I’m curious to know if Archiving workarounds are common, or if my use case is just so unique that OmniFocus and/or OmniFocus Archiving are just not the best solution for me.
