I’ve made no secret of my love for OmniFocus and it’s integration in my workflow. As a result, I often have people ask me more about how to use OmniFocus, or even about how I use it specifically. I’m not surprised. OmniFocus does have a learning curve, and it is not intuitive for a first-time user…especially for anyone who isn’t familiar with David Allen’s Getting Things Done.
I’ve thought about doing a bigger overview of OmniFocus. But, there plenty out there that are worthwhile, which I was reminded of as MacApper posted on this morning. So, for the OmniFocus inhibited, I offer links to some OmniFocus walkthrough that will be worth your time:
- MacApper – OmniFocus: GTD-based Productivity – Just posted this morning
- MacSparky – Review: OmniFocus – I always enjoy MacSparky’s take on things
- OmniGroup – OmniFocus Product Page – OmniGroup has a few videos that are worth watching.
Above all, I would say the best way to learn it is to start using it. It will help if you are familiar with GTD; 43Folders’ Getting Started with “Getting Things Done”, as the title suggests, is a good place to start.
For newer readers of Creativityist, here are a few posts from the archive that describe some of my workflows with OmniFocus:
