While a nice looking list is nice, I can’t deny that I sometimes want to look at a graphical representation to get an overview of things.
Is there some way to easily get a visual representation of what’s in OF? Like a mindmap, concept map or something similar?
There was this - not sure if it is still working
I really like the Rob Trew python script to export my whole OmniFocus database to a mindmap. I used it a lot in OmniFocus 1 and tried again with OmniFocus 2, but It didn't work at the beginning.
I had to adapt a little bit, so I think it was a good idea to post it here in case of someone faces the same problem.
You can have a look at the original discussion in the old OmniFocus forums about this script is here :
The python script …
( but I have to say that the insight which it gave me into the pattern of what OF (reveals | conceals | decorates) became a factor in my moving away from OmniFocus )
I used the Rob Trew script to move it into a mind map for a while, but gave up on it a while ago.
I agree with the OP though, a built-in visualisation tool would be great. Surely Omni could leverage some of their OmniGraffle technologies to give us something that looks great and is fully integrated.
Yes I agree some sort of timeline overview would be great. I have seen them in Bitrix and Pagico
