I TOTALLY get it! I was wishing for this yesterday.
I’ve created a perspective for a job that I have, CHPC, and when I click on it it then lists the tasks in a simple order based off of due date and flagged. GREAT! Clean and simple and not a lot of friction involved, just what OF is supposed to do for me.
On the left (Mac) are my contexts and I can simply click one (say ‘iOS’ or ‘errand’) and it filters my lists. EASY! BAM! Look how productive I’m being!
But on the iOS device I click on this same perspective and it lists all my tasks, again, clean and simple, but there is not way to click on a context to filter.
I COULD go into edit perspectives here, select a context to focus on, but I don’t want to edit my perspective. What if I forget to change it back? I’ll have to undo this step eventually, so it is really 2 steps every time. Plus the buttons to do so aren’t prominent, you have to scroll down to get to it. All in all it is a LOAD of friction! I was being productive but now just got knocked off the horse and SQUIRREL!
I get it… I would LOVE to see a context button.
