I typically use the Forecast view almost exclusively. Would love to be able to email tasks to OmniFocus for example but they drop into Inbox and remain unseen in Forecast view as they do not have a date attached. Wondering if there is a way to see a Counter or Number on the Inbox tab so I will be reminded to review new Inbox items and assign due dates.
There is no option to display a counter in the Mac version. However a counter is displayed in iOS version.
However you can set an indicator on the Perspectives button in the Mac version. Go to Preferences - Notifications and under the Highlight perspectives heading, select Inbox. This will place a coloured indicator bar on the left hand side of the Inbox button.
It doesn’t jump out at you but once you know it’s there, it does alert you to Inbox items.
Thanks! Your explanation makes perfect sense but does not match what I am seeing. When I view the tab you are referencing I always see the darker gray bar. I have assigned due dates to all items in the Inbox and there are no NEW items in there. When would it go away?
