Feature Request: Sorting Due Soon screen Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I love OmniFocus for iPhone, but it can stop being useful when I have too
many tasks open. The way I use Omnifocus is to use my "Due Soon" screen to tell me what I need to work on.

My problem is with 30 things in my Due Soon screen it is difficult to see
what action to work on next. It is too overwhelming at a single glance to
see my priorities. The solution to this could be one or some combination of
the following:

1) On the Due Soon screen add the ability to sort (or group) by due date and
time, or sort by context. or sort by project, or sort alphabetically. A
single button at the top could toggle between these 4 options.

2) Maybe the Due Soon screen could have sub headings like on the Nearby
Contexts screen to group them by context or project.

3) Or the equivilant of (2) would be to add a new option on the Nearby
Contexts screen to only show 'Due Soon' actions. I love the Nearby Contexts
screen, but the trouble is that shows all actions. There is no way to show
just Due Soon actions on there. Again a single button at the top could
toggle this on and off.

Also, I would like the Due Soon page to show the Project as well as the
Context for each action. This could be in light grey next to the context.
Perhaps separated by "/". I don't like having to click down to more levels
to see what is going on, so it would be best to have it all on one screen.

Probably all of the above also applies to the "Overdue" screen.

These seem like *reasonably* easy things to add, and would really make it so
much easier to use.

Thanks for listening, and keep up the good work.
