Does anyone have a workflow (perhaps automation-based) for tasks that automatically expire or reset if not completed by their repeat date? Here are my two use cases:
I have a daily task with, let’s say 5 subtasks. If I don’t finish all the subtasks by the end of the day, I want the whole thing to start over the next day. Otherwise, I find myself doing tasks 1–3 on Monday, then 4 and 5 on Tuesday, and suddenly remembering at some point that I was supposed to do 1–3 again as well.
I have some client work where the actual tasks are in other systems, but my responsibility is to do put in X hours per month for a particular client. It’d be great to be able to have tasks like:
- Make sure you’ve done 5 hours for client by this week
- Make sure you’ve done 10 hours for client by this week
- Make sure you’ve done 15 hours for client by this week
- Make sure you’ve done 20 hours for client by this week
and have each one of these automatically disappear at the end of the week if it doesn’t get completed.
This 2nd case doesn’t really feel like what Omnifocus is “for”, but if there were some workflow for me to shoehorn it in, that sounds a lot easier than adding another piece of software to my system.
Grateful for any ideas!
