OmniFocus Screencast , Episode 3

The final installment of the OmniFocus trilogy is available for download. Find it on the web here or better yet subscribe to the Mac Power Users Podcast. Studies show subscribing to the podcast increases life expectancy and helps you grow full and lusterous head of hair.

I had a lot of fun making these podcasts. After I finish iPad at Work, I may make a few more. Regardless, this never would have been possible without J.F. Brissette’s production assistance and help. Enjoy.

    Loved all three of these screencasts. Just finished. Very helpful.

    I've been through the wringer for years trying to get a good solution. My favorite was the defunked Arrange and then the also defunked Now Up-To-Date. Yes, it became very dated and didn't incorporate the GTD model, but it did incorporate dated events and dated tasks, which seems much more sensible to me than separating them. (Read that, yea, I think OF should have a calendar function). More important, it had a robust repeating task function that worked flawlessly. I'm floored that OF has such an abysmal selection of repeating choices.

    Also used SOHO Organizer, which has a very flexible repeating function and FINALLY fixed the speed issue, but it's repeating tasks and syncing are so freakishly buggy that I finally gave up last week.

    I'm back to OF and excited to really have a system that uses GTD (which I gerrymandered onto the other systems), but really hope they'll get the repeat up do snuff and incorporate a calendar. Scheduled events ARE things that must be done and ARE parts of projects.

    Keep up the great posts. I'm a new fan.

    P.S. I found links to your blog and the screencasts elsewhere. Tried to come back to your blog and had a really hard time finding things. (1) Didn't expect to find our search only as a sidebar link and (2) looked for "ninja" as the screencast title is "Omnifocus Ninja Tricks Part 3", but here on the blog you don't use the same title.
