Give us your best contexts! Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I believe there are some contexts that are more useful to more people than others. Have you found a context or set of contexts that are extremely useful to you and that you think others might benefit from? Please post it here.
I'll start with something I use for team leading and project management.

[Waiting for]

The "waiting for" context is for stuff that I myself is waiting for.
I use the waiting for sub contexts to assign tasks to other people (since OF does not support this natively).

In combination with this I use a special dumping context called:

[not assigned]

I use this context for tasks that I know that I will later on delegate (but it might not be a good time to delegate it to that person right now) or I haven't decided who I will delegate it to yet.
I think I need a "walking out the door" context. Things that go in that context:
1) Take out the trash
2) Take business cards to work
3) Refill gas tank
4) Leave grocery totes out for pickup

These are things I need to do between the time I leave my home computer and arrive at my work computer.
I have a context created for each of my employees - People : Tom, People : John, etc... Then as I assign actions etc... I can then go to a context and see what I assigned to that employee. works great!
