Setting Contexts

OmniFocus – First Thoughts

Posted in Beta, GTD, OmniFocus, OmniGroup, productivity by jquig99 on May 15, 2007

My first impressions about OmniFocus, after a limited time, is that it lives up to the promise (hype!).

Without looking at either of Ethan Schoonover’s movies (here and here) I was able to quickly set up some projects, contexts and assign tasks to each.

In lieu of looking at the videos (which I plan to do this weekend), I followed the “micro-manual” that was included with this beta download. It’s a visual guide that walks users quickly through the basics of OmniFocus.

Again – I didn’t have a lot of time to dig into this application in more than a surface way. But it has been pretty impressive so far.

Screenshots tomorrow.

    looking forward to updates and screenshots.

    The one aspect of the functionality that Ethan’s videos have totally ignored is app integration. I’m using iGTD right now, a very solid app, and one of the main reasons is it’s terrific integration with Mail and web browsers. One keystroke and an email or website is imported with a link to the original. I can also attach other files like JPGs or PDFs.

    I’m VERY eager to see how OF handles this.

    I’ve been using Omnifocus for a week or so and am finding it very stable and pretty cool to use.
