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.
Read full review Pros Time logging Checking remaining PTO Checking total hours on a project. Read full review Ease of viewing your projects at a high-level. Ease of viewing what tasks need to be done at the present moment and the sorting of those tasks by availability, due date, start date, needed resources, and project. The visual interface is really nice to work with, the UX/UI is intelligent and intuitive. It's the most extensible software I've used. There is a community of people that publish compatible scripts for Omnifocus at no charge. The code is robust and I've almost never had a bug or a glitch that resulted in issues. The software syncs in the cloud between MacOS and iOS seamlessly and faster than other To-Do software. The sync aspect is available free of charge. The development team at Omnifocus is on top of bugs and they have been adding releases regularly to increase functionality and performance. While OmniFocus adheres to the GTD (Getting things done) principles, it can be used in almost any manner and you aren't stuck with just that methodology. Read full review Cons User interface could be cleaner. It is a bit complicated. It could be more focused on marketing. Read full review I would really like to see graphic presentations of how I allocate my time, what categories of tasks don't get accomplished, etc. I would like to see OmniFocus include Gantt chart functionality, such as allowing me to see how long it took me to accomplish a task from start to finish. Allowing me to actually input time spent, and seeing it on a Gantt chart, would be icing on the cake. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Over the past 4 years of use I still haven't found any product that comes close in terms of capability
Read full review Usability
It is ok to use; it is not the easiest to use in terms of usability and user-friendliness but it is not the worst. It still feels somewhat outdated. Many cloud options are cleaner or look more modern. But it is good enough and you should be able to get the hang of it.

I would rate Deltek VantagePoint highly in terms of the overall support. You can receive support any time you need it and there is a representative from Deltek assigned to your account so that you can always get the help when you need it. Sometimes, they want to go more in-depth than I would like, however.

OmniFocus has excellent user forums. They're active as well as mature, since the product has been around for years. I've never needed to actually contact customer support because OmniFocus is popular enough that I've always been able to find an answer in the forums, or in an article, or in a YouTube video.

. I think that
is definitely harder to use, and has a lot of features atleast from the users perspective that dont seem entirely neccesary. Deltek is very straight forward and easy to use.

OmniFocus is built for the user with a lot going on - consequently, it does a great job at organizing lots of things in a manageable workload. It's perfect for taking a project and breaking it down into small tasks for yourself or teams. Once you get past the learning curve, it's quick at adding new tasks. Overall, it's an excellent product.
Read full review Return on Investment I cannot speak to this as I was not the business owner Read full review OmniFocus keeps our tasks moving forward. Using a free script you can search all your current projects for projects that have no next step assigned to it to ensure nothing falls through the cracks. When we serve our clients, the attention to detail we are able to give them comes from accurate tracking of what we need to deliver. We complete projects 25% faster than before and we can see where the bottlenecks are immediate. We have also been forced to document tasks in a more concrete manner which allows for better execution.
