Great. You see the functionality, correct?

If you add this, I will have all my employees get Omnifocus for their macs, their phones and ipads. Then, I can send them actions to complete and then can send me things that they need me to do. It's a big help in delegation.

You really can't today, that's the whole issue. It's available on the iPad although only a single action at a time.

On the mac version you can email a version of an action if you write an applescript but it won't be in a format that would be accepted by the person to whom it was sent. They would have to create an action and type in the data.

Being able to email or iMessage an action is a fantastic way to delegate. It's great on the ipad but it would be even more important on the iphone to have it. And it's driving me nuts that we don't have it.

I agree! I really miss this feature on the iphone, it's so much easier for me to delegate tasks to my staff with this.

Here's the thing. If the email (or imessage) had a clickable link that turned it into a OF action on the recipient's phone, I'd buy all my employees a copy of OF for the iphone and for their macs. That way I could delegate one to the other they could use it to keep track of their tasks that I've given them. I'd also like to be able to send them a whole project.

That one feature would cause me to pay for a lot of copies of OF. I would imagine this could have a very positive impact on sales.

Ahhhhhh. You can't believe how good that feels. Can't wait to try it and I'm going to have my employees buy it.
