Today's tasks by Context then all the others Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Right now, I have a Context view that shows me today's (by start date) tasks, then the undated ones, like this:

Mac
----
Write the OF forum entry Today
Backup hard disk

Surf
-----
Check CNN.com Today
Check eBay.com Today
Check NYT

Is there a way to either see ONLY today's tasks in one perspective?

The short answer is no. You cannot filter by date, so you can't limit what you see to only today.

It looks, from your example, like you are grouping by context and sorting by start date.

If you group by anything, OF will display everything in that group (for any context(s) selected in the sidebar), before it applies the sort order. In your example, that means all the items in the "Mac" context, dated and undated first, then all the items in the "Surf" context, dated and undated.

If you want to see only dated items in date order, group by start date and sort however you want OR don't group at all and sort by start date. I would probably group by start date and sort by start date.

Of course then you won't have the context grouping. You can work that by selecting one or more contexts in the sidebar (assuming you have more than just the two in your example, and I do).

I hope that helps.
