TIP: Focus a Perspective on enclosing folders to track related repeating projects

This was something from OmnifFocus 1 that migrated fine to OF2.

I have six projects that recur daily at different times. I wanted to create a single perspective that would show me the recurring projects when they were active. Unfortunately, if you focus on a project and complete it, the recurrence is not focused into the new perspective.

I found a good way to work with this was to have a few folders enclosing the projects, and have all of them in the ‘daily’ perspective. That way, when I complete the daily work preparation project, the recurrence goes into the same folder and when it is available again, it shows up in the perspective. Here’s my main ‘Today!’ perspective:

Hope people find this useful!
