  • Omnifocus review frequency

    Omnifocus enables you to set how often a project will appear in reviews. Great feature. I have started creating projects on hold rather than adding them to my someday maybe lists in order to save processing time in the long run.

    Trouble is I find my self putting hundreds of projects on hold with the review frequency to 1-3 months. If I keep going on like this I am concerned my reviews won't have all the information to make them thorough. If I leave projects at the default 1 week then I find the sheer volume of projects on hold that need reviewing every week makes it to painful and I don't enjoy doing weekly reviews.

    So what are some good questions to ask when deciding how often to review a project? Especially those projects on hold.

    What is the official davidco recommended way?

    I don't know what the official way is but some of the questions I ask about an on-hold project when deciding what review schedule to put into OF are:

    Do I expect that this can be done within the current season?
    Is it a multi year-project?
    Does it depend on tools we do not have right now?
    How high is my personal priority on this project being completed?
    How long has this project been on hold so far?

    I leave things at the default of 1 week review until I get tired of seeing them and then I change it. So for example I have about 35 knitting projects on hold. I have them set to review every 3 months. The reason is when I finish a current knitting project and wish to make a new one active I will look at all the on-hold projects and pick one or 2 to start. I generally need 2 active knitting projects at a time, one that is complex and needs to be done at home and one that is brewery friendly that I can work on while drinking a pint or 2. I don't care to review them weekly as I only really need to see them when I finish a project but I don't want to have a longer review time because sometimes I decide to hibernate a project and start a new one so I want to be reminded of my future projects occasionally.
