Feature Suggestions: Context Planner and Links to Maps for Contexts Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Working on planning my day with my newly installed copy of Omnifocus on my iPhone has given me two ideas for feature suggestions:

1. A context planner where we could set out an agenda for the day based on the order in which we are planning on being in particular contexts. It would be great to be able to have Omnifocus keep me focused on where I am going next when I am out and about. It would be particularly helpful on errands when I have multiple locations and don't want to forget one. Projects themselves don't seem to be the best place to organize a trip because you might have actions from different projects that you need to accomplish in the same context.

2. Along the same lines . . . I would love to see a context location be clickable to Google Maps. I don't know why Apple didn't include this functionality in the location field of the calendar app but this might be an opportunity for an app like Omnifocus. If you could order your contexts according to where you plan to go next, you could also click on a location field that would keep you from having to look up and reenter addresses in Google Maps. Very cumbersome procedure that seems entirely unnecessary given all the goodness of the iPhone.
 
russdquinn: You can click a location to get directions in Google maps from the "Nearby" screen. (the button at the bottom with a cross-hairs look to it)

Please email these feature requests to omnifocus-iphone@omnigroup.com so they get logged into our system properly.
