Filtering Projects That need tasks to complete
 
I couldn't tell if this was possible in the video,

the ability to see projects that need to be checked off as done, or more subtasks added to them.

This becomes important when managing many projects.

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. Do you want to search for projects that have all their actions marked complete (but the project itself hasn't been marked complete)?

That's it!

It's important to see the 5 projects out of 300 that don't have any actions to get them moving... or that should be marked as complete.

Currently, I use Life Balance in a crazy roundabout way to accomplish this.

When a project is created, I have three tasks created:

Name of Project (Context=Completed Projects)
-Name of Project - (Context=Active Projects)
-Name of Project - (Context=Needs Actions)
--task of project - (Context=Home Computer)

The only tasks that will show up is
-Name of Project in the Active Projects Task
--task of project in the Home Computer task

When I have completed task of project in the Home Computer Task
Then
-Name of Project in the Needs Actions task shows up.

I do a daily review of the
Needs Actions
context. If a project is in there that needs more actions... I go to the outline, add tasks and the project in the Needs Actions disappears until I complete the tasks.

If I am done with the project, I complete the project name in the next actions context, then flip over to the outline to also complete the Name of Project in the Active Projects.

The project then shows up in the completed projects task, where I can run an applescript to complete the project and record the name in a file of completed projects.

whew...

all of these are workarounds that I'm hoping Omni Focus will address.

Let me know if I've been obtuse or the information needs to be cleared up.
