Inbox contains tasks with contexts


I recall in OF1 tasks in the Inbox were removed after receiving a context or project. It seems that after I assign a context or project to a task in OF2, they no longer disappear from the inbox. Is this a setting that I’m missing?


It depends on two settings in the Preferences pane ( ⌘, or OmniFocus>Preferences… on the menu).

Suggestion: play around with the options on these two items*, and in case you need more info, you can either check online help (the “?” icon on the Preferences pane itself) or page 137 of the user manual.

e.g. you might want to change the 1st to ‘Either a Project or a Context’ and the 2nd to ‘Immediately’

Hope this helps :D


Thanks so much!
