I habe been using OF Pro for around 5 years now.
Today I finally decided to stop using Tags and Perspectives.
- Too cluttered
- too complicated
- too much to organize
- friction of organizing the app
I just found out I dont need those. If I should have a packing list etc. I will just have a Template project inside OF and I will just duplicate it and and add it to the dedicated journey project. Fine adjustments will be done there. If I feel like in the process of editing that there have to be changes being done in the template I will just switch to it via the tab navigation.
Im aksing myself why I didnt come up with this idea more early.
So now basically Omnfocus is kind of like an todolist-outliner for me. I like it. It is simple and fast. even if I come to the app after a long time, everything makes sense and is all clear.
What do you think about my new approach? I could never be friends with tags and perspectives – they are too complicated for me and never have been helpful to do my tasks.
