OmniFocus for Mac 3.0

September 23, 2018

Requires macOS 10.13

OmniFocus 3 adds tags, advanced perspectives, more powerful repeat options, a new look and feel, and more:

  • Tags — Contexts have been replaced with tags. You can assign multiple tags to any item. Just like with contexts, you can give tags a status of Active, On Hold, or Dropped to help you organize your tagged items.
  • Custom Perspectives (PRO) — Perspectives created in OmniFocus 3 are built from filter rules and allow multiple tag selection, any/all/none groupings, and more. Once added, filter rules can be dragged to re-arrange. In addition to a custom icon, a custom tint color can now be chosen.
  • Repeats — There are now many more options for repeats than in OmniFocus 2, and a new Inspector UI that makes finding the type of repeat you’re looking for easier. Day-of-week and day-of-month intervals are now available for all repeat types.
  • Interleaved Forecast — Instead of siloing your calendar events within Forecast, they now appear as rows interleaved with your actions. You’ll get a better picture of exactly when in your day you should be getting things done.
  • Forecast Tag (PRO) — In Forecast’s View Options, you can choose a tag to display in Today. In this section, you’ll see available items with your chosen tag. This opens up a lot of possibilities for important items that don’t have explicit dates, for daily rituals, and a lot more! We’ve added an item to the Edit menu for applying and removing your forecast tag to the selection and gave it a shortcut (control-command-L).
  • Interface — We’ve updated the OmniFocus toolbar, sidebar, outline, and inspector to feel a little more at home in 2018. The single-line Columns layout is now the default, but the two-line Fluid layout is still available via Preferences.
  • Touch Bar — Added common actions to the MacBook Pro Touch Bar.

OmniFocus 3 for iOS 3.1

September 17, 2018

Requires iOS 11.3, watchOS 4

  • Siri Shortcuts — OmniFocus 3.1 adds support for Siri Shortcuts in iOS 12. As you view various parts of your database, create new items, and complete repeating tasks, Siri will keep track of your actions and start suggesting these activities to you based on observed patterns. These suggestions can appear in Spotlight, on the lock screen, and in Siri Settings.
  • Apple Watch — Some Siri Shortcuts can also appear in the Apple Watch Siri Face. They are: marking a repeating action complete, viewing a project with a due date, or viewing a tag with an assigned location.
  • Handoff — OmniFocus for iOS can now hand off your current activity to OmniFocus 3 for Mac.
  • Advanced Perspectives (PRO) — The “All of the following” group at the first level of a perspective’s filter rules can now be changed to “Any of the following” or “None of the following”.
  • Perspectives — Custom perspectives that use a top-level rule group other than “All of the following” will not appear in earlier versions of OmniFocus 3.
