Are you still seeing this with ver 0.04 ?

Hi Rob, Version 0.04 only shows me the headline: "Due Soon or in last fornight (3 tasks)" but not the actual list of tasks. The good thing is it doesn't shows the completed projects with a due date anymore.

I'll continue using v0.03 for now (since it displays the taks).

Thanks for your support.
 
I've read all through this thread and I must be missing something simple. I can't get:

Code:
tasks where (dateToStart is Today) order by dateAdded --header=Tasks Starting Today ($N)\n | fold -s -w 40
to display tasks that are starting today. Based on:

Quote:
yesterday, today, now, soon
<jan> ... <dec> (Interpreted as references to midnight at the start of the first day of the next (or current) month of that name).

today +1w, now +2d etc.
from Post 1, it appeared I could use a relative date but obviously I am still doing something wrong.

Any thoughts?
 
The date fields are all timestamps (total number of seconds since the start of the epoch 2001-01-01 00:00)

So you need to get the moments at which today started and will end, and filter for cases where (dateToStart >= MidnightLastNight) and (dateToStart < MidnightToNight)

Or if 'today' and 'tomorrow' are predefined with midnight values, where (dateToStart >= today, and dateToStart <= tomorrow)
 
Thanks that helped with the dates. The script was working perfectly for a few days and now is returning no results. Any thoughts on what may be wrong with:

Code:
osascript ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/OmniFocus/GeekOFSQL.applescript 'tasks where (dateToStart >= today) and (dateToStart <= tomorrow) order by dateAdded DESC --header=Tasks Starting Today ($N)\n' | fold -s -w 80

Seems to be working here (though I would probably advise you to save the .applescript file as a compiled (.scpt) file from Applescript Editor):

Code:
~/Library/Scripts/Applications/OmniFocus/GeekOFSQL.scpt
 
Is there a way to use this script to filter things so that only items in particular OF perspective were placed on the desktop with geektool?

I have a perspective that I call current focus, which includes the 8-10 projects I'm focusing on right now.

I then typically switch that perspective to context view and look at things ungrouped, sorted by due date and filtered for next actions. This gets me down 5-10 actions that I should be focusing on right now.

Would there be any way to put that info on the desktop with this script?

I would be inclined to use psidnell's ofexport command line script to put custom reports on the desktop with GeekTool.

Okay, I'll give that a look.
 
I'd love to put a list on my desktop of tasks that have a start date (i.e. not null, not in the future), ordered by the start date. Is this possible?
