on ProjectList(oParent)

		tell oParent
			-- ADJUST THE WHERE QUERIES TO MATCH 
			--THE TYPE OF PROJECTS YOU WANT TO LIST
			set lstProjects to projects where (flagged is true) and ((status is active) or (status is on hold))
			set lstFolders to folders where hidden is false
		end tell
		repeat with oFolder in lstFolders
			set lstProjects to lstProjects & my ProjectList(oFolder)
		end repeat
		return lstProjects
	end using terms from
end ProjectList


Hi Rob,

Thanks very much for posting the "Focus on flagged projects" Script. I had been trying to fathom a workaround for this in OmniFocus until I found the script.

I was wondering; Is there a way of getting the script to also enable the prioritization of flagged projects in the sidebar? (without effecting the position of those projects within their Projects Folders)

After applying the Script, I tried prioritizing the focused Projects in the Sidebar and they just jumped to the top of the Sidebar (and out of their Project folders - in Library view).

This function would be a great help!
