OmniFocus for Mac 3.4

July 2, 2019

Requires macOS 10.13

OmniFocus 3.4 for Mac adds the ability to drop individual actions and updates the first run experience for optional subscriptions.

  • Database Migration — The ability to drop individual actions requires that all of your syncing devices are running OmniFocus 3.4 for Mac or 3.3 for iOS (or later). Once all of your devices have been updated, you’ll be prompted to migrate your database to support the new feature.
  • Action Status — Updated the logic that determines whether an action is available based on tag status. The rules are as follows:
    • A task with all dropped tags is unavailable.
    • A task with any on-hold tag is unavailable.
    • A task with any other mixture of tags is available.
    • A task with its own explicit status (completed or dropped) always respects that status.
    • A task with no tags is available.
  • First Run — We’ve updated the OmniFocus for Mac first run experience for the optional OmniFocus subscription. If you’re a customer who already owns OmniFocus for Mac and/or iOS and would like to use OmniFocus for the Web, check out the Web Add-On Subscription option at the bottom of
  • Dropped Actions — It’s now possible to drop an individual action using the inspector, the keyboard shortcut option-space, or by option-clicking its status circle. Dropping an item is a great way to preserve an action even though you’ve decided not to do it.
  • AppleScript — Added the properties dropped, effectively dropped, dropped date, and the verbs mark dropped and mark incomplete to tasks. Scripts which use set status to dropped on projects should be updated to use mark dropped.
  • AppleScriptmark complete and mark dropped now return the task which was marked complete or dropped. For a non-repeating item, this is the same instance which received the message. For a repeating item, the instance that was marked complete or dropped before the repeat was applied and the original item was moved forward is returned.
  • Perspectives — Added Due & Flagged as a new perspective sort criteria for database that have been migrated to the latest version (items with due dates or flags are shown first).
  • Perspectives — You can now filter, sort, and group actions by dropped status.
  • Repeats — It’s now possible to “skip” an occurrence of a repeating item by dropping it. You’ll be prompted whether to schedule the next occurrence or drop the item completely.
  • Sorting — Added By Date Dropped to the Organize > Sort Once submenu.
  • Clean Up — Fixed a problem where Clean Up didn’t automatically happen when changing perspectives.
  • Counting — Fixed a problem with summary counts in sequential projects with where a grandchild action group contained completed actions.
  • Crash — Fixed a crash when attempting to create a new project in free viewer mode or undoing creation of a new project when licensed.
  • First Run — OmniFocus now refuses to sync with incompatible databases during first run, rather than allowing syncing without migrating them, which led to later problems.
  • Forecast — Prevented events from the system “Found in Natural Language” calendar from appearing in Forecast.
  • Outline View — Fixed a few rendering problems in the outline when running a beta version of macOS.
  • Sidebar — Improved the alignment of folder and project icons in the sidebar.
  • Omni Account — If you’re signed into an Omni Account you can now see more information about your account, including any active subscription, via the OmniFocus > Omni Account menu item.
  • Action Groups — Completing an action group no longer explicitly completes every action in that group. Instead, the actions inherit the completed status.
  • Action Status — Actions in projects or action groups that are completed or dropped now inherit their container’s status—similar to the existing behavior of due dates, defer dates, and flags. The Completed perspective and Availability: Dropped perspective filter rule match actions that inherit a completed or dropped status.
