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.

It's good for small, agile projects.

Pros

OmniFocus

  • 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.

  • Task management
  • File management using tags and simple search
  • Adding external users for a restricted set of information

Cons

OmniFocus

  • 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.

  • The notification system needs to be improved

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.

Alternatives Considered

OmniFocus

Part of O365 is the Tasks application, which is "free" with O365 and does a lot of essential task management. Yes, it's very basic. Yes, it's basically "To-do," but it works quite well. Omnigraffle does everything better, and more thoroughly, but at a higher initial cost. If your workplace provides O365 for "free," however, I would suggest starting with Tasks and moving to OmniFocus if/when you need more functionality.

Return on Investment

OmniFocus

  • 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.

  • Can't really nail that...
