Action Groups in Context Mode Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello everyone!
I'm new with OmniFocus, and have a problem with an action groups and projects.
Why I don't see an action group like a tree in Context Mode, just like in planning mode? How to do this?

For example I have a Project "Writing reports" and have an action group header: "Write month report" with context "Office". And three task:
"Gather Information" with context "Mac : Online"
"Write Report" with "Mac" context
And "Check Report" with "Mac" context.

Can I see this Action group like a tree in Context mode, just like in Project Mode?

Or, if header and all subtasks have one context, can I see them like a tree in Context Mode?

No, you can't do this. Context view items are flat.
So, it's no reason to assign context for projects, if I don't see whole project in Context menu?

If you assign a context to a project, then it will be the default context for all items created in that project (unless you manually specify another context). So it's helpful for that purpose.

In my context view perspectives, I have it set to display the project column, so I know what project they belong to. However, action groups are not visible in context mode in the same way they are in project mode, which can lead to the loss of some contextual information. There's a setting (under Data) to show projects and action groups in Context mode, but it doesn't behave as you'd thinků it's displayed inline with the other items, and then only after all the sub-items have been completed.
Thanks everybody, I've help me!
But if anybody have more thoughts, I'm ready to listen them.
