OmniFocus is acknowledged as one of the premier task manager applications on the Mac, iPad and iPhone. With the release of OmniFocus V2 for Mac, some absolutely indispensable features, first seen on the iPad and iPhone versions, have now made it across to the Mac.

In the first of a two part series, we review some of the new features in OmniFocus 2 for the Mac, along with a refresher on some of the core concepts of OmniFocus.

OmniFocus allows you to capture your ideas and thoughts and convert them into actions. Once captured, you can assign due dates, contexts and notes and organise your actions into projects and perspectives to see your data from all angles. The beauty of OmniFocus is the flexible power of the system. Keep it simple or create complexity, OmniFocus is highly configurable and includes many new tools to manage and organise your tasks and actions.

In this episode, I'll be taking a look at creating and updating Actions, Projects and Contexts, to fully understand the core concepts behind OmniFocus - no prior experience or prior knowledge of OmniFocus is assumed or required.

In the next episode, I'll take a look at assigning dates, exploring the brand new Forecast and Review Perspectives and more.

The full tutorial covers:

  • Introduction To OmniFocus 2
  • User Interface
  • Adding Actions
  • Adding Projects
  • Adding Notes to Actions
  • Changing Project Types
  • Adding Contexts
