OmniFocus

1) Great for managing your work and personal activities.2) One of the best implementations of the Getting Things Done method.3) Not really suited for collaborative work management; OmniFocus is managed on a per-user basis so you can't share/assign tasks.

Pros

  • User customization for each individual and their responsibilities
  • Great support staff and update capabilities
  • You can see the early stages of the project and see it through in a clean and organized way
No photo available
  • Rich in functionality but flexible at the same time meaning that user adoption is rapid and friction-free; more exotic features and functions can be introduced over time as the user builds his/her familiarity with the product
  • Allows my users to follow their productivity method of choice (most of us are fans of David Allen's GTD method but OmniFocus isn't rigid or prescriptive in its implementation
  • Cross-device synchronisation means I can seamlessly switch from desktop to laptop to tablet to smartphone and have access to my data in real-time; this means I can always have access to the data no matter where I am or what I am doing

Cons

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas
No photo available
  • I'd like to see more customization options for keyboard navigation. There are two preconfigured sets of settings, but no option to modify.
  • Sometimes synchronization between desktop and mobile doesn't push, and I need to manually refresh.
  • Attachment support is clunky.

The closest analog to OmniFocus is Todoist. OmniFocus, however, runs circles around Todoist and every other to-do list and reminder system. OmniFocus is not just best in class, it is in a class by itself. I feel somewhat incompetent saying more about how powerful OmniFocus is. I know that there are others who have done far more with OmniFocus. I am quite comfortable using it, but want to learn more so that I can improve the usefulness of OmniFocus.

Return on Investment

  • ROI
  • tracking

  • By introducing OmniFocus into my business I have been able to implement standardised working practices across the team; it has made the adoption of the GTD method much easier for the employees who had never come across it before
  • The flexibility and richness of the application mean that all team members are constantly living with OmniFocus - we have virtually eradicated all other modes of activity and planning capture, so no bits of paper or post-it notes, no emails to self, no accumulation of files with crib notes, no illegible notes scribbled in books, etc. Everything is captured at source in OmniFocus. Project meetings with clients and internal team meetings are driven via OmniFocus so we always know "what's next"
  • As a team I've seen improvements in morale and attitude as OmniFocus has enabled them to cultivate the right habits around effective productivity; these improved working practices in the office via OmniFocus are now also being put in place at home for some of the employees giving them a greater sense of control and visibility in their professional and social lives
