OmniFocus can present your tasks with a lot or a little information, depending on your tastes. One place that The Omni Group have recently made this even more useful is on perspectives in iOS.

As an example, here is my Current perspective:

My current "Current" perspective in OmniFocus on iOS
My current “Current” perspective in OmniFocus on iOS

It displays tasks with only the projects they are related to showing. OmniFocus gives you the option to have Projects or Tags show or not show in any combination. To adjust this,

  • Select the Perspective editing icon:
Select Perspective Editing Icon
Select Perspective Editing Icon

Here is an overview of my Current Perspective settings:

Overview of “Current” Perspective

At the bottom, you can see where the options are to adjust the presentation of tags or projects:

Show project paths on
Show project paths on

For instance, if you wanted to see tags and not projects, adjust the settings so they would appear as follows:

Show tags on
Show tags on

You should see something like:

Perspective with tags visible
Perspective with tags visible

You could also have neither show:

Perspective without tags or projects visible
Perspective without tags or projects visible

For this particular perspective, I’m not a fan of seeing my tags, but I do like the projects showing as presented in the first image above.
