Request: Sample Perspectives Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Does anyone have any sample perspectives you would like to share? For example, what are your settings for the Daily Review and the Weekly Review?
 
Here are mines.

Presented by reviews. Re-used perspectives aren't repeated.
I copied Data from OmniFocus perspective window, reformatted it, kept only pertinent information (eg, a line 'Focus: No Focus' would be removed), and added missing information (like selected project/context).

I hope that it will be useful to some of you.
I would love to see others' perspectives.
 
Search the main OF forum. There was a substantial thread on this topic a couple of months back.

Thanks for your samples, Lutin, and I'll look for more in the main forum.
 
Curt was referring to this this thread: http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?t=4860

Maybe an admin might merge this thread into the other.
 
Thanks so much for posting this, and especially your samples, Lutin. I've been using OF for a few weeks, and finally decided to see what perspectives can do, and have been a little confused by them. This clears things up a lot!
