I’ve been an Omnifocus user sycing among a Mac, iPhone & iPad using the OmniGroup Server. Suddenly, a few days ago syncing became painfully slow. A sync on any of the installs started taking at least a few minutes, often many minutes.
In the past I learned how one must be actively syncing on all devices to keep the speed up & filesize low. I use the Mac version far more than the iOS Devices for OmniFocus. So when it slows down at all, I make sure to sync all devices; sometimes it takes multiple tries, but it has always solved the problem. But not this time.
I’ve tried all sorts of things to get the speed back & nothing has worked. One of the things I tried was archive old data, since it had been at least a few months.
The problems started around the time I replaced my iPhone 7+ (running iOS 11.x) with an iPhone Xs Max (running iOS 12). I made sure there were no devices registered for syncing besides the correct 3. Except for 1 short time period … the iPhone had removed suddenly reappeared! So far this seems to be ok now.
Here are more specific descriptions of what I’m running:
MAC: OSX 10.13.1 (High Sierra); Omnifocus 2.12.2
IPAD PRO: IOS 11.4; OmniFocus 2.22.3
IPHONE XS MAX: IOS 12; OmniFocus 2.22.3
I’ve been planning to update all to OmniFocus 3. But I want to get everything running OK first. Any ideas what could be causing the sync problem & how to fix it?
Also, any suggestions for the least problematic approach for doing the OmniFocus 3 upgrades?
