Please combine OmniPlan & OmniFocus into a comprehensive time management app Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Omni Group: Please combine or at least integrate OmniPlan & OmniFocus into a comprehensive time management app.

OmniTime, OmniWork, OmniResults, whatever you might call it, could be a category killer in both the project management and GTD spaces because it would integrate group and individual, long-term project and short-term task, as well as top-down and bottom-up approaches into a single time management app.

Is there any chance of this happening?

Thanks,
Jeff
 
Integration between OmniFocus and OmniPlan is one of the big features we're working on for OmniFocus 2 and OmniPlan 2. It's not done yet (OmniPlan 2 is further along than OmniFocus 2 is), but here's the plan:

A project manager working in OmniPlan 2 will be able to assign tasks to individual team members, and those tasks will automatically show up in each member's OmniFocus 2 database. As people work on their tasks they should be able to update their completion status and estimates of time remaining, and OmniFocus 2 will automatically post progress updates back to OmniPlan 2, where the project manager can review and accept the updates and post an updated plan.

Awesome!!! Thank you. I love OmniFocus, and if you guys were not going to integrate or merge them I was going to purchase Merlin, which is a great project manager (but without GTD). But this kind of integration will make OmniPlan a no-brainer for OmniFocus users. You guys will own the time management space from top to bottom.

What's a realistic guestimate of when OmniPlan 2 and OmniFocus 2 might be available? I understand you can't say anything definite, but just a general general ballpark time frame so we can plan accordingly?

And thanks for the quick reply also.
 
We expect to release both OmniPlan 2 and OmniFocus 2 sometime in 2010.
 
Ok, thanks Ken! And keep up the great work, Omni's apps are awesome.

This is fantastic!
 
Hello,
I've been trying out and learning different GTD software trials for the last month and OmniFocus & OmniPlan are great to use they work wonderfully, they're pleasureable to look at and watch in use.

Now that I see there's plans for integration it's a major relief and I feel like I can call off the search. The lack of integration had me still searching, but I still hadn't found anything I felt quite as satisfied with as OmniFocus. I tried Things and I really liked it, but it just wasn't robust enough.

I'll be picking up a few Omni products in the near future. Thanks for the quality efforts!

Is there another post/page where you list the feature roadmap of Omnifocus? I would love to see this, with the a GIANT caveat that anything can change. Just like to get a feel for what's coming, especially after investion $100 (Omnifocus + Omnifocus for iPhone).
 
Just adding a vote to integration or communication between the two apps. For people who are serious about managing both actions and time, this is critical.
 
Maybe a great compromise would be a full fledged Omnifocus with slimmed-down Omniplan features. Perhaps Omnifocus + Gannt 'lite' without too much resource tracking... more about personal milestone visualization and task grouping. Yeah? Need more features? Use Omniplan with Omnifocus integration.
