What you need to know
- OmniFocus for the Web has gained support for custom perspectives.
- The powerful custom views will sync from your other OmniFocus apps.
- But you'll still need to create them on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
The Omni Group has added an important feature to the web-based version of its popular task management app, OmniFocus. The newly updated OmniFocus for the Web now supports custom perspectives for the first time.
OmniFocus power users make heavy use of custom perspectives. They're saved searches of sorts and can be invaluable for plucking tasks and projects out of a huge database. And now the feature is also available via a web browser.
That last example is taking things a but too far, but that's the point. Custom perspectives can be extremely complicated and that's where their power lies.
You can't create custom perspectives on the web just yet, though. You'll still need to use your other devices for that. At least for now.
Patience, folks. It'll come. You can find more information about OmniFocus for the Web over on the service's website.
