@LizPF I'm not sure what you're doing with OF, but I have over 100 projects and thousands of tasks, and use it for Project Management for all my projects at home and work.

On some tasks, there is a hard landscape, and it is a duplication of effort to put a task on a calendar when it is already in OF. OF is a calendar in that you can see what is overdue and due soon, and the details of that dating. If it isn't a calendar, then why have a due date feature at all.

This especially applies to those of us that are in OF all day long and store all our project information there. And we are already putting in due dates/times to manage the projects properly.

@Ken Regarding Ken's suggestion to send Growl notifications to SMS. That really isn't a good solution as there would be too many messages going out. I would like the capability to send just those notifications that I need to be reminded of at a certain time. I am currently using Jott for those types of notifications, but that too is a duplication of effort I would like to remove from my workflow.

This obviously is not any kind of deal breaker for me. I love OF and it is absolutely the best and most flexible GTD tool on the market. John
