I’ve been using OmniFocus since its very first release and incredibly frustrated with the continued lack of any collaboration feature.
I NEED to collaborate with my wife on various personal and business related issues, and with my teammates on business issues.
I tried using ToDoist for the tasks that needed collaboration while keeping my main list in OmniFocus, but this is a complicated solution as running two different systems means twice as much to keep track of.
I can only hope that after OF Mac 3 is released that OmniGroup will address this glaring omission, but I am not hopeful. There was lip service paid to collaboration in the 2018 Road Map published earlier this year:
For OmniFocus 3, we’re adding support for linking tasks between unrelated databases. The idea is that I can send you a task (with its notes and attachments and due date) and propose that our tasks be linked, and you can choose whether to accept the link or not. While our tasks are linked, we can each see updates to the status of that specific task. But in each of our databases, that task can live wherever we want: so I can turn my task into its own project with a number of subtasks, while you might have that task as one step in a sequential project.
…but this feature is absent from the current iOS release (unless I’m missing something).
PLEASE OMNIGROUP, GIVE US SOME KIND OF COLLABORATIVE ABILITY IN OMNIFOCUS!!
I know software development at this level is not easy, but how hard can it be to implement something like what ToDoist offers, where projects can be shared, and any given task can be assigned to another user.
Curious how others in my shoes have dealt with this problem?
Grateful for suggestions/solutions.
