There are a few of reasons why I keep these separate. Some of it is just inertia; I had these separate checklists before switching to OF. Another reason is that I don't think of these as separate actions, but as a routine that I work through all at once. Finally, during the review I'm constantly changing views in OF. If my checklist were also in OF, then I'd have to keep switching back to it. I suppose I could open a separate OF window to focus on the review checklist, but that seems like overkill.
As far as checking things off in more than one place, I don't have a daily review action in OF. I have calendar items for daily reviews
. I also have a simple script that unchecks every item in an OO outline, which is handy for resetting these checklists. Here's the script: Uncheck All.zip
. I put the script in ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/OmniOutliner Pro. Then I had it to the default toolbar in OmniOutliner.
