In my experience, Omnifocus is great at capture/review and poor at giving clarity for what to do right now. I am pleased to see Tinderbox intelligently imports my OF tasks and their metadata with simple drag and drop. I’d like to drag tasks over to TBX, visually sort and manipulate them in all manner of ways (e.g. using the map view with links, agents and adornments), and then I’d want any task added or completed or detailed (notes area edits) to sync back and forth.
- If I made a new task in TBX, it’d go to OF (perhaps the inbox).
- If I made a new task in OF, it’d go to the map in TBX (perhaps level 0).
- If I marked complete both apps would know.
- If I added notes, both apps would know.
I’ve seen this thread and am willing to try out some of the more specific bits (like templates and such to copy/paste as Taskpaper links), but before I do I want to know if what I’m aiming for is conceptually possible. I think I’m asking too much of these programs to talk back and forth w/each other as I’ve currently imagined it. Is that right?
