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. If you’re syncing OmniPlan 3 projects between multiple devices, you should update all installations of OmniPlan to the most recent version.
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!

- App Lock — “Password” placeholder text is now localized.
- Change Tracking — Change tracking now correctly reports changes that affect both task duration and task effort.
