focus on single "project's" due items Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm trying to use OF for my leads generation (CRM).

I have a "project" set up with a bunch of items. They are single items that are not dependent upon each other. They all have due dates. So every day I want to spend an hour or two just concentrating on this one folder's items - specifically the due items.

How do I view a single Project by Due Date? I just can't figure it out. At present when I open a single Project in a window - I select Sort by Due Date but toe order is completely mixed up.

We should be able to focus in on a single project and sort how we want it - right?
 
Focus on the project, then go to context mode view to do the sorting.
 
sorry - I don't quite understand this answer - how would context help reorder the items by due date?
 
You can use the view bar to tell OmniFocus to display your actions ordered by due date. In context mode, sorting is on an action-by-action basis, whereas in project mode, it is on a project-by-project basis, which is why you can't do what you want in project mode. Example:



 
Thanks for your help. Looks like context mode doesn't help at all because all my projects will be mixed in there making it a nightmare to sort through.
All I want to do is focus - focus in on one project - and view the due items listed all together at the top of the window - not scattered through the whole project.
David Allen talks a lot about focus. This would help me. I can't figure out why this isn't possible to do.

Here's how you do it:

* Pick the project, and focus on it
* Hit command-2 to switch to context mode.
* Select status filter: Due or flagged

voila
