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.
