OmniFocus and TimeMachine Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Are there any plans to make OmniFocus a TimeMachine aware application?

Not that it's anywhere near critical by any means, just curious.
Since OF uses only one large file to store the data, there's really no need to make OF TM aware. Other mac apps like mail use *many* files to store its data, and the file names are somewhat codified, so finding a specific email in TM is helped when Mail works with TM.

In OF's case, if you ever need to go "back in time" you just restore the one database file. It's all or nothing.
Speculating here, but: the omnifocus "file" is actually a package/folder full of XML files. These would allow, in theory, one to be able to time machine back while focused on a single project or folder the same way time machine let's you go back within a single folder.
