Hi Ken, Thanks for the heads up and last call!
I would really like a little bit more flexibility in the ability to create a perspective that shows due items - very helpful for the short-term reviews.
Here's what I'd like to be able to do:
- a perspective with just due items that includes "Due within the next month" and "Due within the next 3 months"
- a perspective that adds flagged items to that
It seems like those could both best be facilitated by adding a couple more items to the definition of "Due soon".
Here's what I've tried:
If I start with the viewing the entire Library in projects mode and apply the default Due perspective and then change the status filter to "Remaining", I get the following categories displayed:
Due within the last month
Due within the last week
Due within the next week
Due within the next month
Due within the next 3 months
No due date
Those last 3 categories weren't present when the status filter was the default of "Due soon"; the next month and next 3 months categories weren't present when I chose a status filter of "Due or flagged" - which I think is a great addition! In that case, though, I think the heading ought to be "Flagged" instead of "No due date" if possible.
So, to re-iterate, I think that having the ability to include the 1 month or 3 month categories in "Due soon" perspectives would be great!
Finally, I agree with those that say the view bar color is a bit too obtrusive. Can that be added to the formatting choices in preferences? If not, I don't think it's a huge deal. I've just begun to use 1.7, but it seems great!
Thanks very much for all your very attentive work! Keith
