Project items in inbox?


Sorry if this question is trivial, I’m a bit of a noob when it comes to Omnifocus, but is it possible to have your inbox tab include items from your projects as well?

I would essentially like my inbox to be the one-stop-shop for all the upcoming tasks at hand.

The inbox is intended as temporary storage for items you haven’t yet categorized or assigned to a context. It’s essentially a project with special status in the interface, so it can’t contain items assigned to other projects.

You could get the effect you want with Perspectives. For example, you could flag the items in the inbox and then use the “flagged” Perspective to show you everything that’s been flagged, across all your projects as well as inbox. Or in a similar fashion you could use the Today Perspective to show you everything due today.
