Sending Actions/Projects to someone else Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Is there a way within OF to send an action/task to someone else? I'm looking for something like a right click, type in the e-mail address, and have OF automatically create and send the e-mail via (or some other app that I specify).

Even if it could create the body & subject, and I have to type in the address myself, would be much better than than having to manually create an e-mail using the cryptic syntax.

This would be a HUGE time saver if it's not currently available. Delegating is a key practice in GTD, and automating that would be helpful (and a nice reason to buy more OF licenses!)
Hi Ihotka,

I put a little service called Spootnik ( together which synchronizes Basecamp directly with OmniFocus and vice versa.

Basecamp supports to-do responsibilities and sends an email if the responsible party changes. Spootnik synchronizes those responsible parties as Context into your OmniFocus database.

Thus changing a responsibility of a task (inside Basecamp) means to change the Context inside OmniFocus (e.g. "Phone" to "Phil" or "Phil" to "Veronica") and let Spootnik do the synchronization work. Have a look here: ...

Best regards,
Unfortunately I can't have any of my data on a third-party service - only within my own hardware/network.
This is one of the things we're thinking about working on in a future version of OmniFocus, but we don't have a feature like that in place right now.

Send an email to and we can add your vote on behalf of that feature.
