- Hi, I'm Chris Mattia, and welcome to OmniFocus Essential Training. OmniFocus is a task management application designed to capture all of that stuff, that is constantly swirling around in the back of your mind. That is what's preventing you from moving forward on your projects. If you're familiar with David Allen's Getting Things Done, you'll feel right at home in this application. If you're new to task management, then don't worry, I'll guide you through, step by step, and have you checking items off your list in no time.

I'll teach you how to capture and organize all of your projects and action items into a trusted, and logical system. Then, we'll get your projects moving forward by determining your next action. I'll teach you how to become more efficient by using context to dynamically build your to-do list. Finally, I'll show you how to unlock the power of OmniFocus by synchronizing your database across all of your Macs, including the OmniFocus application for iPhone and iPod Touch. I'll be your guide through this course, so, let's get started with OmniFocus Essential Training.
