You can also use a "sorta tag" solution but putting the phrase "90DAY" as a note (or even in the title) in each of your projects and then make a perspective using that search term in the toolbar (and...

I don't know if the ribbon is the answer, but I would love to have something different than the current inspector. It is clumsy and takes up a lot of space on the screen (I suppose if I had a huge...

I was also frustrated by having every action in a project show up if I flagged it, making my "due or flagged" perspective almost useless. What I do now is make good use of the State Date so I don't...

missing disclosure triangles on projects and action groups

I haven't had the triangles visible on either projects or action groups except on mouse-over for ages. And I swear years ago (or what feels like years ago!) that they would remain visible as a...

separate default context from project/AG context

I found it confusing that to choose a context for a project/action group, one had to use the "default" context. I kept looking for a way to pick a context similar to how an action context is...

what's the difference between an OF Archive file and an OF Backup file

I am thinking about removing my someday/future lists from my main OF database to help make it smaller (and hopefully help keep me more focused and organized).

I started moving them to a...

I'll put individual SA's on hold by putting a real far out start date. I use 8/8/88. It's easy to type and very distinctive so I don't think it's a real start date.

I think this is a great example of the need for either multiple contexts (or tags) or being able to set the status of actions, not just projects. If there was an "on hold" or "waiting" status for...
