Snooze (not "defer") tasks/projects Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Snoozing an item is conceptually distinct from deferring and should have its own script. ("Defer" modifies the task itself, pushing it back in time; "snoozing" hides it from your attention without altering the due date.)

So here's an AppleScript to "snooze" selected OmniFocus items by setting their start date to a future value.

  1. Run the script with one or more items selected in OmniFocus
  2. Choose how long you would like to snooze the items (in # of days)
The script will then set the start date of selected items to the current date + the number of days selected in step 2. For example, snoozing with the default value of 1 day will set the tasks to begin at 12:00 AM tomorrow.

Finally, if you have Growl installed, the script will display a Growl confirmation.

I highly recommend initiating the script from a third-party launcher such as FastScripts or Quicksilver. This will prevent delays within the OmniFocus application due to Growl bugs.)

Grab it here.
