Likelihood to Recommend
I've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked Having clear milestones and timelines for projects Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general Assigning different components of projects to different people Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task Read full review
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 An overview of project timelines and milestones. One-on-one or group conversations. Tracking the status of projects and tasks. 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.

Lacks expense management and Purchase order management functionality Newest product updates are not always stable and I had to reach Nifty's support team a couple of times in the past to fix the issues with new updates e.g. our document management and meeting integrations had to be re-authorized 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

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.

There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of
's community aspect with hashtagging - not sure if Nifty can do this, never tried) Nifty even has the ability to import directly from many other platforms - I've personally imported projects from
, saving tons of time in migration.

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 Consistent communications. Staying on project schedule. Aligned projects with business strategies. 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.
