One of the things that I hate about OF is a lack of a quick shortcut to select today’s date, or see a pop up calendar (ala Gmail) to set a date. Have I overlooked some easy to accomplish this? Thanks.
If you enter 0d (i.e. zero days from now) into the due field on the Mac, the due date will be assigned to today’s date.
I hope this helps!
p.s. There’s also a popup date selector in the Inspector. Though I find it’s generally most efficient to enter the date using OmniFocus’ flexible date entry.
Thank you! Just tried the 0d and it worked
@silverlaker— You’re very welcome. Good to hear this did the trick!
@timstringer I see in that documentation that there are shortcuts for days, weeks, months, etc. Is there a syntax for ‘X’ minutes from now? Can’t seem to figure that out.
@jm.torres — I don’t think there’s a way to specify minutes, though you can specify hours (e.g. 2h). You can also enter an exact time (e.g. 7:50am).
@timstringer Ah, that’s unfortunate. Thank you for the quick response.
One of the things I find disappointing on iOS is there doesn’t appear to be a “type in” field for Due or Defer dates.
