Managing My Reference Material with DEVONthink, OmniFocus and Shortcuts
Reference material is a big challenge, and I find if I don’t set myself up for success from the beginning, then I am most definitely doomed to fail. I found DEVONthink some years ago and really like it for managing my reference material.
Announcement: Build Your OmniFocus Workflow
Today I'm very excited to announce a book: Build Your OmniFocus Workflow. I've been hard at work on this for the last 3 months - but not alone. My fabulous co-author, Ryan Dotson, has been hard at work right along side me (admittedly with a timezone difference) - and we have 150 pages ready for you!
Automators 5: Project Templates
Episode 5 of Automators is all about project templates, and how they can help you to be more productive. David and I are both OmniFocus users, but project templates can be used with almost every task management system out there - even Reminders!
Workflow: Add Task & Sub Tasks To OmniFocus
One thing I frequently do in OmniFocus is to add an action group, that is a task with a series of sub tasks. Action groups are flexible because they can be turned into projects if necessary, or be a series of tasks within a project.
OmniFocus 3 for Mac Sneak Peek
I am once again lucky enough to be in the early preview for OmniFocus 3 - this time on the Mac! What's important to keep in mind here is that this is a beta, and an early one at that - things can and likely will change between me writing this post and OmniFocus 3 for Mac being released - they may have already changed by the time you read this post!
Workflow: OmniFocus When Home
I often add things to my OmniFocus as reminders of items to do when I get home - however they're not due when I get home, which would be the default if I added these icons through the Forecast view for today. As such as I have the following Workflow which allows me to defer items until I get home.
Workflow: OmniFocus Travel Plans
Another Workflow workflow I demonstrated in my Learn OmniFocus Video was one to generate a project for travel. I travel a fair amount, and often to more than one destination so this is built around that.
Workflow: OmniFocus University Course
I was asked to talk through my thought process behind a Workflow by powderizedbookworm in the OmniFocus Slack, so this post will go into more detail than usual.
OmniFocus 3 Overview
OmniFocus 3 for iOS is here, and there's more than a few changes! If you want to see a video of my setup you can do so over on Learn OmniFocus, there's also an article on how I've been using OF3 over on Inside OmniFocus. Finally you might want to check on my OmniFocus Sneak Peak - though that was back in March and more than a few things have changed since then!
I’m Going to Be on Learn OmniFocus May 23rd
I’m very honoured to have been invited to present my OmniFocus workflows on Learn OmniFocus with Tim Stringer. The session will be live on May 23rd, and you can sign up for it now. As well as showing how I use OmniFocus I’ll also be demonstrating some of my Workflow workflows and automation that I use every day.
Omnifocus 3 Sneak Peak
I'm fortunate enough to have been let into the very early OmniFocus 3 Beta. The app isn't finished yet, but here are some of the features which you might enjoy. To make things clear, I have the dark theme on OF3, and the light theme in OF2 - and I've tried to do screenshots to let you compare the two easily.
