multiple projects with staff resources Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
They will, but it will probably be in the form of a product announcement saying it is now ready for download as an alpha test version (sneaky peek)... Omni doesn't believe in revealing their development plans until they have something concrete to show, and even when they have that, predictions of exact ship dates are hard to get (until the version string gets the magic "rc"). To paraphrase a posting elsewhere from one of the Omni staff, "we decide on a bunch of features we want to include, then work on them until we are satisfied." It's possible that they lose some customers by not being able to accurately predict when that process will complete, but I would rather use something that was shipped when its creators thought it was ready, not something that was shipped because someone made what turned out to be a promise that couldn't be met without sacrificing quality and/or content. Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, etc. may have to operate that way, but Omni doesn't, and coupling that freedom with their willingness to listen to the customer base, I think we get better products as a result.
Please add me to the list for the multiple project feature also. We are an internal agency with 7 designers, 3 writers, a web team, retouchers and photographers. Would find this very useful.

please add my vote for multiple projects and intelligent cross-project resource management.

and it wouldn't harm anyone or anything if omni were to give a general target date, even to the quarter year, for when you anticipate - without commitment - major features like this to be implemented.
We really needs this feature. Please add us to the mix of people voting. thanks
This is an extremely important feature. I really like OmniPlan but as others have said it is severely limited without this feature.
Add a vote for me, please! The first thing I tried to do was to manage multiple projects on a single doc to eliminate sched. conflicts.

The great thing about OmniPlan IMO is that I don't need to have a bunch of project outlines, combined with a calendar, cross referenced with an excel document to manage projects. Everything is in one place and OmniPlan does the clerical work I don't need to be doing, when deadlines and delivery dates change, reordering every project and resource required.

Right now, I'm adding all my projects for a given month to a doc. At the end of the month I'll clean up the things that have been completed and archive the old plan for reference.

Thanks, Omni software is great.
Ditto as well. Please add my request to share resources across projects and add a view with all projects.
I own and love OmniPlan.

Please add me to the long list. This thread is over three years old now. Have you made any progress with this feature? Any chance of an ETA of when it might be ready? You are probably losing customers due to this.
Yet another multi-license customer, me, voting to include some kind of multi-project rollup feature so resources can be levelled across projects. I just read that groups within the one file is a workaround - I'll check that out, but please, people! How many years does this take?

Has this been added in 2.0?
