I have been struggling a bit with the OF2 learning curve. After reading a lot of posts, I figured out a simple workflow that I think will work for me, based on 4 perspectives.
My “Available” perspective simply lists available next actions, with this recipe:
- Don’t use project hierarchy
- Group Actions by: Project
- Sort Actions by: Due
- Filter by Status: Any Status
- Filter by Availability: Available
- Filter by Duration: Any Duration
- Filter Contexts: Remaining
Works great, except for one thing: empty projects (ie, projects that do not have any tasks in them) appear in the list. I hope this upload works:
“Fix M&A” is an empty project, although OF is showing me the project title twice (which I don’t understand), once as the project title and once as a next action (but there is no next action in this project).
Is there a way to stop OF from displaying empty projects in this perspective?
I realize one response might be “don’t have empty projects,” but I sometimes do, and that actually works for my workflow. I realize I could just defer the empty projects, but then I get into the game of having to keep deferring the empty projects, and I understand that, in fact, this may what OF is trying to force me to do.
Appreciate any thoughts or comments. Thank you.
