Verify Next Actions Exist
This script scans all projects and action groups in the frontmost OmniFocus document and lets you know if any are missing a next action. I use it in my daily reviews to keep all my projects moving forward.
The search differs from OmniFocus Pro’s Stalled Projects filter — available in custom perspectives — in two ways:
- The script detects action groups with no next actions.
- The script doesn’t worry about projects that have actions starting in the future.
Here’s how to install the script:
- In OmniFocus, choose Help → Open Scripts Folder.
- Drag the Verify Next Actions Exist file into the scripts folder.
- Control-click the toolbar and choose Customize Toolbar to add the script to the toolbar in OmniFocus.
