Projects and Action Groups in Contexts Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
When I go to Context view (or "Due" perspective), none of the projects that I have show up as things to do within any of their assigned contexts. Only actions assigned under those projects show up. I assumed that by marking "Show Projects and Action Lists" when in context mode on the preferences tab would make it so that, in addition to seeing tasks when viewing contexts, I would see also any projects to which I have assigned a context. I do have contexts assigned to several of my projects and was surprised that they didn't show up in the context view after checking the "Show Projects and Action Lists" when in context mode box.

Am I misunderstanding something about "Context Mode" vs. viewing the context perspective screen?

Or does OF only show tasks in the context perspective view, regardless of the "Show Projects and Action Lists" when in context mode box being marked? If this is the case, what DOES marking this box accomplish?

Thanks for any help!
Projects and action groups are only treated as available when their contents are complete. If you are showing Available actions, they only appear when it is time to either complete the project/group, or add more actions. If you are viewing Remaining actions, they should always appear, but will not be styled as Available until their contents are completed.

Have another look with this in mind, and see if it makes more sense now. Might be worth making a small test project, focusing on it in project mode, then checking off the actions one by one in context mode to observe the behavior.
That worked! Thanks for the help!
