How to See Only Due, Flagged, Next Actions Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

That is the current implementation-'Due or Flagged' is a sub-set of the 'Remaining' tasks. There are two top-level 'Status' switches, remaining and completed, and the due, available, next, etc., filters are all sub-sets of remaining. I suppose Omni could create a new grouping of 'Remaining>Due OR Flagged AND Available?

I could then set "Status" to "Available" and "Flagged/Unflagged" to "Due and Flagged" to accomplish what I want. It broadens the usefulness of the filter.
I can understand how some users would see value in what you are looking for-I'm not questioning the usefulness of a filter that looks at due and/or flagged tasks that are available. However, if we are limited to how it behaves currently or the behavior you are looking for, I vote for the current behavior. What we really need, and has been discussed for the 2.0 release, are smart folders where we can customize our search criteria to exactly match our search needs.

The current implementation fits your use case, not mine. Currently I can ONLY choose to look at "remaining" due or flagged items, not "available" due or flagged items. If "Due or Flagged" were moved from the Status menu to the Flagged/Unflagged menu, it would handle both of these cases and more.
