OmniPlan 2.0, is this actually being worked on? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Work on OmniPlan for iPad hasn't officially started yet, since the OmniPlan team is still busy working on OmniPlan 2.0.

I'll be officially back from vacation tomorrow, after which I'll review the current state of OmniPlan 2.0 and will hopefully be in a position to post an update. (We're very eager to share with you all the work we've done on 2.0 over the past few years!)
Hi, Ken,

Can't wait to hear what you've got on OmniPlan 2.0. Just getting back into it after an extended break.
Hi Ken,

Looking forward to your update. I'd appreciate it if you could include a comparison to some of the more 'professional' features of MS Project, specifically enhanced resource management and EVM (earned value management). I've been watching (and trying) OmniPlan for a while, but right now I'm still stuck using a combination of Merlin (a great app but, I think and hope, not maturing as fast as OP?) and MS Project (ug).

I'm a solid OmniGraffle, OmniFocus (MAC & IPAD) user and would like to have a rough idea of the timeline for 2.0 (I lived through the OF iPad release agony!). "Q4" is precision enough. A high-level list of features would also be very useful.
I'd LOVE to help beta test...
Hungry for news..... Update please, Ken! :-)
I wonder if some integration between OF and OP might ever be on the cards?

Seems to me there is clearly a use for planning with OP and then heading to OF for day to day task management.

At the moment I effectively do this by using Merlin for project planning (largely because unlike OP it syncs with iCal to create 'all day event' calendars that are easier to share / sync with team and clients) ... and then manually re-set up my projects and set up their constituent tasks in OF. Works fine - but would be way better to keep all three elements (Project Planner, Calendar, Task Management) in sync ... and ideally all in an Omni way on the Project and Task fronts.

So, one would set up projects and their scheduling of start and due dates, dependencies, etc in OP, and then head over to OF to deal with the tasks that are needed to complete those projects.

Would be great to bring together Gantt chart based project planning and GTD task management. Somehow I suppose one would need to overcome the fact that each system (and therefore app) uses a different hierarchy of terminology though - ie. "Tasks" in OP are really "Projects" in the OF/GTD sense. Would "task groups" in OP become project "folders" in OF?
I would like an update also on where OmniPlan 2.0 currently stands.
