What features do people most want in OmniFocus Web?


#1

Given that based on previous years the Omni roadmap probably drops soon, what features do people most want for OFW.

For me it would be:

  1. Focus
  2. Perspectives

#2
  1. A web API with the ability to add actions with all their parameters (tags, dates, etc). I would use this for integration with other apps through Napier.
  2. Perspectives (edit: view only, not the rules editor)

If (1) was added I would subscribe to OF Web just for that backend capability; I use the Mac & iOS clients exclusively.


#3

I’d really like to be able to re-order and move projects/folders/tags.


#4
  • Multiple selection for bulk editing.
  • Click on tag to jump to that tag.

#5

Perspectives is the biggest one.

The ability to mostly just use the keyboard… keyboard shortcuts and tabbing around aren’t very good right now.


#6

Ability to select/edit multiple tasks. Also view deferred items in Forecast.


#7

Deferred in forecast is available now on the rest url: https://test.omnifocus.com/


#8

Ability to set up my own Omnifocus web app on my own servers. I haven’t even looked to see if that is possible now but unless that was an option I won’t use it. Data security and privacy are my main concerns.

I remember there was an article about how OmniFocus Web works with regards security:

https://inside.omnifocus.com/blog/security-and-encryption-in-omnifocus-for-the-web

TLDR: if you use OmniFocus Web your data is stored unencrypted (for a “while”) on Omnis app servers for performance reasons.

I think they still support WebDav sync to your own server, this page refers to OmniFocus V3:

Sync is not the same as a web app that non-Mac folks can access. I already use my own WebDav server for syncing between multiple macs and iOS devices. Sync is a good start but I’d like the ability to run an Omni Server on my own system.
