Hi let’s say I have a task that 2 people need to complete.
The action task is “proofread project paper”
and I tag it “Steve” and “Ben”
I’ve proofread the paper but Ben hasn’t
can I mark the task complete for myself and have it still incomplete?
then when he proofreads the paper I can mark his part complete.
I’m the only one using focus but some of my tasks also need to be completed by others.
OmniFocus is only designed to handle your personal tasks, so it’s a good idea to frame everything you enter into it from your perspective. To me it sounds like one of your actions is “Proofread Project Paper” and the other is “Get feedback from Ben on Project Paper”. You could group these two actions into an action group about collating feedback for the paper, or you could leave them at the top level of your project—but I wouldn’t try to combine them into one and track partial completion.
Just learning OF here so please pardon my ignorance.
If you created a tag “Proofread” and had two sub-tags - “Proofread:Steve” and “Proofread:Ben” - then created an check-off for each of those three tags, would the main tag “Proofread” get marked off automatically when both Ben and Steve completed their part?
