OmniFocus 3.2 for Mac: Notifications and Bug Fixes

by Brent Simmons on January 15, 2019

OmniFocus 3.2 for Mac brings notifications to the Mac!

In Preferences, in the new Notifications pane, you can set notifications to appear on any combination of due, deferred, and latest start date. You can choose sounds for your notifications, too.

You can also create one or more custom notifications for any given action: see the Notifications section of the Inspector, where you can set a notification to run at a certain amount of time before it’s due — or even at a specific date and time.

(Note: notifications require macOS Mojave.)

Here’s a screenshot of the Inspector while setting a custom Before Due… notification for 30 minutes before:

And here‘s a screenshot of a notification as it appears in Notification Center:

Also in Preferences: the configuration of the Today widget has moved to a new Extensions pane, and the Badges pane has been reorganized.

Other changes include crash fixes, improved VoiceOver support, better recovery when server data is encrypted with an unknown key, and a bunch more — read the release notes for all the details!
