Requires iOS 10

Recent Changes

OmniPlan 3.5 for iOS introduces support for elapsed time values for task duration and lead/lag times. OmniPlan 3.5 for iOS also introduces 1Password support and includes a wide range of bug and stability fixes.

A note about backwards compatibility: OmniPlan 3.5 for iOS and the corresponding Mac release, OmniPlan 3.7 for Mac, contain changes to OmniPlan’s scheduling logic, syncing, and change tracking.

OmniPlan 3.5 for iOS requires iOS 10.

Version 3.5 - Wednesday, April 19, 2017

  • Elapsed Duration — OmniPlan now supports elapsed time values for task duration and lead/lag time! By default, OmniPlan calculates task duration and lead/lag time from the project’s work hours. Entering an “e” before either value will now convert it to an elapsed time value instead. Need to wait for the paint to dry before you can take the next step in your project? Enter “48eh” in your “Let paint dry” task’s duration field to tell OmniPlan that the next dependent task can begin Monday morning if the paint has started to dry by the end of the day Friday (and assigning additional resources to watch the paint dry won’t help it complete any earlier). OmniPlan does not yet support importing or exporting Microsoft Project elapsed time values.
  • 1Password — OmniPlan now integrates with 1Password for iOS for OmniPresence credentials.
  • Scheduling — We cleaned up and rewrote the code OmniPlan uses to schedule project timelines. This is intended to make project scheduling more accurate by addressing things like rounding errors. As a result, you may notice slight changes in your project’s schedule after installing this update. If you are confused about why your project’s schedule as changed, or feel that it has changed in a way that it shouldn’t have, please contact our Support team!
  • Publish/Subscribe — Substantial updates were made to OmniPlan’s publish/subscribe mechanism in order to improve speed and better handle authentication challenges.
  • App Lock — It is no longer possible to use keyboard shortcuts when the application is locked.
  • App Lock — “Password” placeholder text is now localized.
  • Change Tracking — Change tracking now correctly reports changes that affect both task duration and task effort.
  • Date Formatting — Lead time in the Task Scheduling Inspector now correctly respects specified duration date formatting.
  • Group Tasks — Fixed a bug that could cause group shading for nested groups to draw incorrectly.
  • Group Tasks — Addressed a drawing bug that could occur when creating heavily nested groups.
  • Localization — Korean and Brazilian Portuguese localizations no longer use English placeholder text when creating a new task.
  • Localization — Dutch localization now exports task and resource HTML reports in the correct language.
  • Microsoft Project Import — Fixed a variety of bugs that could block Microsoft Project files from importing correctly.
  • New Tasks — New tasks are once again created immediately below the currently selected task.
  • Publish/Subscribe — Changes to a project’s start date now publish properly.
  • Publish/Subscribe — OmniPlan now syncs more happily with
  • Publish/Subscribe — Addressed an encoding issue that could cause a 404 error for account names that include an @ symbol.
  • Publish/Subscribe — It is now possible to delete more than one project at a time from the Server Repository.
  • Resources — Changing a resource to the “group” type, then switching back, no longer leaves the resource’s units at 0%.
  • Stability — Addressed a crash that could occur when some Accessibility options were enabled
  • Stability — Setting the date scale to “Day” while viewing all non-working hours no longer causes a crash.

OmniPlan for iOS 3.4

Requires iOS 9

Recent Changes

Version 3.4 - Monday, September 12, 2016

OmniPlan 3.4 for iOS introduces Brazilian Portuguese and Korean localization support and “App Lock,” an optional privacy feature for locking access to OmniPlan on your device via TouchID or a password.

  • App Lock — When App Lock is enabled TouchID or the App Lock password is required to access the application. This feature is intended to add an enhanced layer of privacy, preventing access to OmniPlan’s contents while your iOS device is unlocked. App Lock does not encrypt documents or block access to OmniPlan’s contents via iTunes File Sharing. App Lock passwords are device specific. If the App Lock password is forgotten, deleting and reinstalling OmniPlan will disable the App Lock feature (note: local data should always be backed up before deleting and reinstalling an application to prevent data loss).
  • Localizations — Added support for Brazilian Portuguese and Korean. If you notice issues in either of these newly supported languages, please let us know!
  • Resources — The Equipment Resource icon now matches the other resource icons.
  • Scheduling — Addressed a bug that could cause resource schedule exceptions to be ignored when exceptions were also scheduled in the project calendar.
