I’d like to request advice on the best way to set-up OmniFocus for the handling of tasks requested of others. I’m CEO of a fairly sizeable company and alongside my own “to-do” requirements, i have a management team of direct reports, to whom i have continual task lists of items they need to complete, tasks i’ve delegated, or simply things they need to come back to me on. Some of these will be via email and i am often in a situation where i suddenly realise, some time later, that i’ve not had a response to one or more emails for whatever reason. On that last point, it would be ideal if i could automatically have tasks created in my OmniFocus when i send certain emails to others with tasks in them.
I want to ensure i have a structure where i am on top of tasks of others, and am reminded where necessary. Am unsure what the “best” way to do this is and how others are using OmniFocus to handle similar situations.
Our company server structure is Windows Exchange based for email, and i use iPhone (with Exchange set-up) and MacBook as well.
I’m a new user of OmniFocus and am implementing based on the GTD model (which it seems OmniFocus is set-up for anyway). I’m currently using OmniFocus for iPhone, but will add the Mac software on a MacBook soon as well. I have Omni Sync Server set-up in readiness. Not currently upgraded to Pro - unsure if i should or need to for what i want to achieve (possibly!).
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions!
