I want to thank you for your post in the other forum on the two perspectives that you created to mimic and enhance the Next and Today focuses in Things. I had previously set up the Next one myself, but had not installed the sneaky peek and tried the Today perspective. Now I have and it is working great! I have not yet switched back from Things to OF, but I am now running both and gradually bringing my OF database up to current status.
When I switched from OF to Things about 6 months ago, my reasoning was that Things seemed to be much simpler and offered features that appealed to me (like the Today focus and Teammates) plus features that were missing from OF (like more robust scheduling options). What I learned while using Things was that its less flexible setup helped me clarify my workflow and how I wanted my tasks and projects to be presented to me. Before switching, OF offered so many options that I could not decide what I needed or wanted. Now I have a better developed workflow and concept of desired output, and the greater flexibility and features in OF are bringing me back.
However, I haven't made the final decision yet. I am compiling a comparison of deficiencies for Things vs. OF that are of concern to me. Right now it's pretty close. (Maybe something to post in the near future.) As is often mentioned, the competition should improve both apps - the question is who will be the best for my needs and when will one app get "close enough" for me to make the final (?) decision.
