Set new date for action - Easiest way? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have an action that needs details from a third part.
To make the action vanish from my list I put a new date in the start date. Thus it will show up when that date arrives.

- Is there an easy way to set a new date for an action? A shortcut of some kind. As it is now I have to move the mouse etc. It takes time.

- Is there an easier way to do this? Am I interpreting OF wrong regarding this?
I used to use a context called "Waiting for", but it turned out I never looked there, so the actions where "lost"...

Do you show the start and due date columns in your windows? If so, just tab over there and type in the new date/time. You can type things like "+13d" (13 days from today), "10 jul" (10 July, this year), "3p" (3 PM), or mix and match, like "10 jul +4w 7a" (7 AM on the date 4 weeks after 10 July of this year). About the only time I use the inspector to change a date is when it is a date that doesn't appear in my window, or if I'm changing something else in the inspector at the same time.
Aha, of course. Have missed the column handling. Thanks!
