Color coding for tasks due soon Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I understand the reasoning that if a task has a start date in the future that it is "blocked" by OF b/c it is not available to be done (can't be started until the start date). However, is there a way to get around this?

I want to see all my tasks that are due in the next 3 days color coded (in green) regardless of what their start date is. Is this possible?
The thinking behind the current behavior on the Mac is that letting the "unavailable" color win out helps you focus on the due soon actions that have started. That said, we have had folks request that the "due soon" style override the unavailable one; if you email the support ninjas, they can attach you to that request. (Ones with more customer interest attached tend to get assigned higher priority.)

That said, you can set your "Due Soon" period to 3 days in Data preferences, and the Styles pane can be used to color that style to green instead of the default orange. Does that help?
