OF recommends this solution, but the program unfortunately doesn't support it very well. You can only set a review date on a per-project basis, so if you have a bunch of "Waiting For" items that you stash in a single-action project, they all come up for review at the same time. Completely useless, IMHO. I'm afraid that due-dates are the only way to handle individual ticklers right now.
I've asked in other threads that OF support something on the granularity of due dates, but separate from them so we aren't forced to muddy the due-date list.
