I only have OF v2 on my Mac (it’s old v 2.5.3) and it hasn’t been used in a long time. I don’t have the OF iOS app.
Well I’ve haven’t used it because I don’t get constantly reminded of my due/past due tasks. I need that.
Well after a few months of not using anything to mark down todos, I turned to the Apple Reminders app (on my Mac & iPhone) to put down to-do’s, and I have noticed … I’m getting due dated tasks done because one thing, persistent reminders.
With Apple Reminders, when a reminder hits it’s due date:
-it appears and remains on my iPhone locked screen (until it’s done) staring me in the face. I love this.
-on my Mac, the notification swoops in at the upper right of my screen and will not only go way until I defer it to the sensible time frames I’m offered: completed, 5 min, 1 hour, tomorrow, or ignore.
Well, ignore would be bad so I don’t select that, but I chose the right timeframe, and I get caught in a routine of proactively deferring my reminders until in relatively short time … the task gets done!
For me, that works.
Well, does OF 2 and OF iOS treat notifications of due to-dos the same way on the Mac & iOS? If so, I’d go back to using OF in a heart beat as I do love and miss having projects and nesting to-dos in projects.
As it stands I’ve get dozens of due todos in OF, and they are sad reminders of what I haven’t done and they don’t rear themselves in my Mac OS. The only thing shown to me is their quantity, shown as a number on the OF dock icon.
Any advice appreciated.
