Fix Pending Project’s Review Dates
Download version 1.0. posted March 17, 2018
This script makes sure that any Pending Projects — ones whose Defer Date is in the future — come up for review on their Defer Date. The script finds all your Pending Projects. Then it updates those projects to have a Next Review Date equal to the Defer Date. This is helpful in two ways:
- Projects that you aren’t ready to start on don’t appear in your review list.
- Projects appear in your review list on the day they become available. I find this super helpful since I’m reminded of the project and can make any new plans for it.
Here’s how to install the script:
- In OmniFocus, choose Help • Open Scripts Folder.
- Drag the Fix Pending Projects Review Dates file into the scripts folder.
- Control-click the toolbar and choose Customize Toolbar to add the script to the toolbar in OmniFocus.
