OmniFocus 4.2 Brings Relative Dates to Perspectives

OmniFocus continues to evolve, and with the release of version 4.2 it brings a slew of enhancements that promise to improve your productivity whether you’re on a Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch (or even using the new Apple Vision Pro). A few features stand out:

Custom perspective rules are the big one for me. New filtering rules based on dates, repeating tasks, and project groupings allow for more granular organization and review of tasks. You can also set perspective views on relative dates (today, tomorrow, yesterday, and any variation thereof.)

It’s worth noting that this update went out to all versions of OmniFocus simultaneously; I consider that a benefit of SwiftUI.
