Hello all users and OmniFocus developers,
How does one schedule meetings with OmniFocus 3? I have started using OmniFocus using your the book “Creating Flow with OmniFocus 3” from Kourosh Dini as a guide. And came to a situation which is puzzling me: how to schedule meetings? I wanted to schedule a meeting for the first time in OmniFocus and discovered that it isn’t possible. Or is it? Apparently, from what I could understand so far, we need to use a separate calendar app that is linked to OmniFocus. Is that correct?
I used the search function in my pdf reader to find more information in the book about how to do that, but couldn’t really find any. And that puzzled me. Is it there and, for some reason, I couldn’t find it? Or did he consider this information to be obvious and therefore doesn’t need to be written about?
What increased my “puzzledness” even more, was that I also couldn’t find anything about this in any of the official OmniFocus support websites, the online manual, nor the User Forum here on Discourse. The closest I could find was in this message: https://support.omnigroup.com/of-and-calendar/ , where it says: “OmniFocus isn’t meant to be a calendar replacement, but rather a calendar complement. The calendar does well when it comes to keeping tabs on events that happen at a specific place and time. However, many of our tasks don’t schedule so neatly—that’s where OmniFocus comes into play.” Why is the interplay between OmniFocus and a calendar app considered to be so unimportant that the people who developed and the ones who use it don’t even mention it? Or was I just unable to find the information?
