Yep for sure during a work flow. However, my review flow is different than my work flow, and I am just being principled about it for the sake of the review process.

Alternatively, one might ask for a preference setting to just show a colored dot as a badge without containing a count of "actionable items". It could even be a "perspective dependent" setting. That is one change I could swallow right away, because, as you suggest, I hardly pay attention to the exact number in the count box during a work flow process (especially since I know it is ambiguous anyway). I sometimes do want to process with repect to that number during my review processes though.

Yep. I agree here. Forecast mode is where the trouble is. I would imagine holy terror will arise should OG remove the existing "auto-complete" feature on Action Groups. That leaves modifying the how Action Groups (auto-complete or otherwise) are handled/displayed in Forecast mode as a more viable choice.

Oh! I meant checking a GROUP completed / uncompleted. I missed that note even after you pointed it out directly. My apologies. I'll go bang my head against a brick wall a few times to make amends ... :\

In this regard, as Brian has noted already, the UNDO option gets me back on the Mac (and I did not even think about it ... duh!!!)

An equivalent distinction would be very helpful to have on the iPod version for sure.

Thanks!
