OmniFocus for iOS 3.7

April 8, 2020

Requires iOS 13, watchOS 4

OmniFocus 3.7

OmniFocus 3.7 adds new shortcut actions:

  • Shortcuts — The Show Database Object in OmniFocus shortcut action has been removed. Now that all of our other Shortcut actions can return an OmniFocus URL, you can use a generic URL action instead.
  • Shortcuts — The tag and project pickers in New Item and Find Items now accept the results of the new Find Projects and Find Tags actions (some of them previously accepted database objects, which was confusing).
  • ShortcutsGet Database Object from Input is now Get Database Object Result from Input. Instead of returning a database object, this action now returns a result that contains one of Item, Project, Folder, Tag, or Perspective, depending on the input. These objects can be used in the pickers found in other OmniFocus shortcut actions.
  • Shortcuts — Added Find Projects and Find Tags shortcut actions that can be used in conjunction with New Item, Find Items, and Show in OmniFocus.
  • Shortcuts — Added a new Today’s Forecast shortcut action that returns items based on your Forecast view options.
  • ShortcutsToday’s Forecast and Find Items now have an option to Show When Run.
  • Shortcuts — You can now access the Dropped Date (including inherited) attribute of returned items.
  • Shortcuts — You can now access the OmniFocus URL attribute of returned items.
  • ShortcutsFind Items now sorts results in projects order by default.The previous sorting options are also still available.
  • Backups — Unreferenced attachments (those slated for deletion) are no longer included in backups.
  • Floating Time Zone — This control is now active whenever custom notifications have been added to an item.
  • Today Widget — The Today widget now shows items that are blocked, just like the Forecast perspective does.
  • Crashes — Fixed a crash related to backups and sync, along with some others. (Thank you for sending in those crash reports!)
  • Export — Fixed a problem exporting to CSV.
  • Inspector — Fixed a problem where the inspector would be come unresponsive after assigning a project to an item.
  • Navigation — Fixed a problem where the Back button would stop working intermittently.
  • Navigation — Fixed a problem where you couldn’t swipe back from some perspectives.

  • Outline — Fixed a problem displaying the correct outline when opening an action group child from the Today widget.
  • Performance — Made performance improvements for certain types of large databases.
  • Perspectives — Fixed a problem where a newly created item was immediately deselected in some custom perspectives.
  • Quick Actions — Fixed a problem where quick actions wouldn’t appear when long pressing the OmniFocus icon from the iOS home screen or dock.
  • Share Sheet — Fixed a problem where the extension would crash if you tried to send multiple photos to OmniFocus at once.
  • Shortcuts — Worked around a Shortcuts bug where Add Item would present a picker when given a list of tags from Find Tags. A side effect of this is that Add Item will no longer automatically take the output of the previous action as input; sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Sync — Fixed a problem where sync would silently fail while in Airplane Mode, instead of presenting an error.
  • URLs — Fixed several problems with navigation URLs.
  • URLs — Fixed problems where some URLs wouldn’t work properly during first run.

March 5, 2020
