What's the point of a project context? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I'm new to OmniFocus, but I've read GTD and I'm completely hooked!

I have a question about something I find rather odd about OmniFocus for iPad.

When we assign contexts to actions, they show up under those contexts, and also on the map, if we assigned specific locations for those contexts. Works great.

However, when we assign a context to a project, that project doesn't show up under that context, or on the map, as those views are only for actions under the project, and not for the project itself.

So... Why is there an option to assign contexts to projects in the first place? So far, the only list I saw it had an effect is under contexts. If I don't assign a context to a project, it's listed under "no context". Otherwise, it's listed with the actions with that context assigned.

Could anyone explain the logic?
