I love OmniFocus and have used it for years to keep my personal and professional life together. Recently I received a hefty promotion and have gone from managing myself and my work to a Vice President position in the company leading a team of about 20. Things are going great and I am working with great people. I’ve learned that information management if a very big part of this new job. When I have a conversation with someone on my team or someone else in the company I walk away with a ton of information and countless “Need to” things.
Does anyone have any suggestions for organizing things in OmniFocus using tags/folders/and projects? As an example, if I have a series of meetings I might walk away with things like:
-Need to get with J about E’s 401k issue
-Need to ask A about the status of Project X
-Need to ask A about the status of Project Y
-Need to investigate the history of Project Z
-Need to get with L to ask about the files for Project Q
Would you suggest tags for each person I interact with so that all of the “Need to get with A about…” items can easily be found together? Maybe a single action list called “Questions for A.” We have about 75 “projects” going on in my department right now, so I’m thinking maybe a folder for each project containing a single action list within it as the main, overarching place to put stuff with other projects in the folder acting as “subprojects” for the overarching. Then all of my “Get w/A” type things can go on the single action lists for each one of my department projects and get tagged with “Questions For A” tags.
Sorry for the long message. Just doing a bit of thinking. Any thoughts and help will be appreciated.
