We have a new article for Inside OmniFocus by Jeff Porten, who’s a Mac guru and consultant, writer for TidBITS, and author of Take Control of Your Productivity.
The article — Outside OmniFocus — is about when to store data outside of OmniFocus — in OmniOutliner, for instance — and then store a pointer to that data inside OmniFocus.
Meanwhile, the Learn OmniFocus folks (not affiliated with Omni) have published a free session, OmniFocus 3 Workflows: Mike Schmitz, that is their first to highlight OmniFocus 3 for Mac beta. (Note: OmniFocus 3 for Mac ships in September.)
The Learn OmniFocus folks have also published Custom Perspectives for OmniFocus 3, an article which talks about…
…some of the many ways that custom perspectives can be used to quickly and conveniently access the most relevant information from OmniFocus and help ensure that your database is up to date and relevant.
Rose Orchard, one-half of the Automators podcast, published Workflow: Add Task & Sub Tasks To OmniFocus, which automates adding a task and sub-tasks. Rose writes:
The Workflow works by asking you for the main task, then it asks for the sub tasks. Each sub task is indented (and has a dash added in front of the name to make it TaskPaper friendly), and then the whole lot is put into my OmniFocus inbox.
And Wilson Ng, self-described “Space Cadet” (we love that!), published a video on creating perspective groups using Keyboard Maestro. Very cool!
