Now that I have moved back to OmniFocus I have run into a quandary that I’m not sure how best to address. I have a lot of articles to write and presentations to prepare. I know when these are due so using the due date judiciously is easy. What I’m uncertain about is the best way to identify when I need to start working on a presentation. For example, I may have a presentation to give on Sept. 30. If it is a large and important presentation I may want 6 weeks to work on it which means I need to start on it by August 15. How do I set the “start date” (which OF does not have) so the project shows up beginning on August 15? Is that how one uses the defer date? Does a project/task with a specific defer date show up in Today in the Forecast perspective so I know to start work on it, or is there a “best practices” for creating a perspective that will help with this?
Sorry for asking such a basic question but I’m trying to catch back up on using OF effectively after spending several years in Asana, which has a start date.
