For years I’ve been fumbling and stumbling with OmniFocus on MacOS & iOS. I think I got myself (mostly) in a groove with it, except…
How on earth to create a simple perspective that does this…?
Filter: tasks due today (today's date) Sort: by tag -or- Find: tasks deferred today (today's date) Sort: by project
I get that I can go to Forecast and click on 'Today" to see my list of Due and Defer Until tasks (I also get the difference between Deferred and Due). But there seems to be no way to adjust the column width in the Forecast on MacOS—the columns overlap so I can’t read the entire Title. Also can’t sort by Tag and/or Project in the Forecast.
I’ve seen so many different workaround posts here and elsewhere, suggesting flagging tasks and/or adding tags (ex: a “today” tag)…but they all seem kludgy in that there’s yet another piece of info to enter and maintain, versus keeping data entry simple. Creating scripts or automations is beyond my pay grade.
I can’t believe having a basic Task list for today, that can be sorted, isn’t somehow a preset (I pray that OF4 will have that feature!). Or am I missing something in OF3 MacOS and the above is possible without doing virtual summersaults?
Thanks in advance—and sorry for being a little “ranty” about this!
Not sure what today is,
