Lots of discussions about features, bugs and whatnot, so thought I would start a thread to discuss cool features, tips and tricks in OmniFocus 2.0. I am sure all of these are documented somewhere, but I wanted to highlight some of the more obscure ones.
Any Perspective can be set to your sidebar by clicking on the Star icon in Perspectives window (PRO?)
Perspectives can now have custom key commands (COMMAND + 1, COMMAND +2, etc)
You can drag and drop a task in forecast view and it will change the due date, hold down OPTION + COMMAND and it will change due and defer dates
The Inbox Perspective side color goes grey if there is something in there
There are now stats at the bottom of the window including Tasks and Projects
You can re-order the Perspectives and that will re-order them in the sidebar (Pro?)
You can select multiple days in your forecast view and it keeps the days you selected when you come back to it.
You can drag and drop from Inbox into Projects to create a new project
Custom Perspective icons show up in the sidebar and are black and white when not selected (PRO)
I’m back to OF 2 after 2 year break and using Things 2. I’m liking OF 2 and plan to stay - flatter, yes, than OF 1 but enough hierarchy to avoid overload, interface clean and uncluttered. I would welcome a “dummies” guide to setting up a kanban view - I’m not adept at scripting and would love a-z instructions from someone who’s created a great kanban. While I’m at it, would love to know how to successfully do a “dummies” version of OF 2 completed tasks to Day One - haven’t been able to make that script work. I promise to pay it forward with tips and tricks I can offer! thank you
That’s a great list Jason. I’m mostly new to the forums and didn’t know about (1) the dragging and dropping in forecast view to change the due date; and (2) selecting multiple days in the forecast view.
