OmniFocus for Groceries

Posted by | 3 comments


I'm originally from Australia, but have lived all over the world for the past 5 years. I love taking things apart and putting them back together, and one of those things is the idea of human performance and how far we can push the limits of what is possible. Most seemingly "impossible" problems are solved by a solution at a higher logical level, or by borrowing a framework from a different discipline. What I write about comes from hearing about something and then trying it out in my own life, often with surprising results. I hope you get a lot out of it and feel free to get in touch with me anytime!

Is it possible to share shopping lists manged in OF with your spouse?

I love me my OF, but in this use-case the inability of OF to share lists makes the use a grocery specific app (like Buy Me A Pie) much more frictionless.

Unfortunately that’s not possible with OmniFocus – you’re better off using other apps for that.

I share with my SO using omnifocus. The only way I know of is to share the whole thing though. Just use the omnifocus server and log into both iphones with the same account. Some of the projects have my name in front of them, and some have his, and some tasks like grocery shopping don’t have a name in front because either or both of us can do them.
This might not work well if you also use omnifocus for work, but if it’s primarily home use, it works fantastically.
