Due date display discrepancy Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
When I have OmniFocus' Data preference pane set to "Due Soon is in the next week", my actions get colored orange when they are 7 days away from their due date (an item due October 30, 2008, at 12:00 AM is currently orange as of October 23, 2008, 2:00 PM).

However, that same item shows up under the "Due within the next month" grouping in context mode with the view bar set to group and sort by due date.

If "Due Soon is in the next week" and the action is turning orange, shouldn't it show up in the "Due within the next week" grouping instead? If not, why?

A guess: the due soon styling is applied if the due date is less than 7*24*60*60 seconds from the current time, and the grouping is based only on the date -- so that things like "Due Tomorrow" make more sense. Something starting 7 days + 2 hours from the start of the day today will show up as Due Soon (with that set to 7 days) anytime after 2AM, but won't show up in the Due within the next week until the date of the item is less than 7 days from the date of today.
