OmniFocus' mantra has been that we need to help people get stuff done. Fiddling settings doesn't get stuff done (styling & tagging, I'm looking at you too!) Still, right now we have a bunch of ways to indicate relative priority:

- Due dates; if something bad will happen if it isn't done by then
- Flags; in the morning, flag the stuff you want to get done that day, then do it via a 'Flagged' perspective.
- Ordering in the project sidebar; put higher priority projects up top, order context view by project and complete your actions in order.

Merlin has an excellent post on 43folders about priorities.

I've flip-flopped on priority before, but for now I'm more into flagging the occasional item and then getting to work checking stuff off.
I'll give my vote on getting Priorities back into the application before the release of version 1.0.

I have already paid for the OmniFocus (always been found of the applications coming from the OmniGroup) and I would really like to have this feature already from the start. I do not believe in using the flag in replace of the priority function.

You will really help me to get stuff done by implement (or re-implement, since you pulled it away) the priority feature again.

Why not make it an option like the suggestion at
