Delegated projects control
 
I have 8 direct reports. Each of them has their direct reports. I used to delegate a project, then I put a line in Excel file in the following format:

Project Name: Task: Delegated to: Due date

It was easy to sort that by Delegated field when I spoke to my direct report regarding the progress or by Due date when I needed to check where we were.

As I use my OF I would love to have everything in one place, in my OmniFocus. Any advice here? Should I have an area of focus for each of my direct reports (a folder) and put delegated projects in there with "On hold" status?

Here's [URL="http://forums.omnigroup.com/showpost.php?p=106044&postcount=4"]a link to a post[/URL] where I describe how I handle this. YMMV, obviously, but I hope this helps!

Thanks for sharing. When I delegate a project, I don't care about what their Next Action is. Is there a way to do that in OmniFocus?
