New OmniFocus widgets on iOS

I can’t help but think the new widgets are actually less useful, since now I can’t complete my tasks directly from the widget, which I used to do all the time. Anyone else feels the same?

that’s the way Apple meant widgets to be.
Show information, but not make it actionable.
The latter is probably for a next iteration

@caruso YAs @Janov mentions, this is a limitation of iOS 14. If you’d like to be able to interact with this type of widget in the future, we’d recommend sharing that feedback with Apple! I think the best way to do that is via this webpage: https://www.apple.com/feedback/

If we had a widget that combined the Forecast (numbers) widget with Today (a list of tasks) I’d go for it. It would have to be a large one, I think. (I know @kcase was asking for comments on widgets a while back.)

Maybe this is one I’ll have to try to make with Scriptable - but it would be nicer if it were “native”.

In general, I think large widgets are hard to justify as so many of them aren’t information dense enough to warrant a whole screen. But this one would.
