Perspective only to show Today Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello there,

Does anybody know how can I create a perspective that shows me only today's tasks without showing me tomorrow's, next week, etc...?

Many thanks!
Hi Othon Leon

You can create a perspective based on context view, where actions are filtered to just show those 'Due Soon' - this will show actions due within whatever time period you have set under the Data section in OF prefs. Unfortunately of course this will also affect any view where you filter by 'Due soon', but nevertheless would do the job for you.

Personally, I would also value the ability to filter by 'Today' as well as 'Due soon', since sometimes I want to be aware of deadlines coming up and at other times I really want to focus on NOW.

The workaround I've been using in the meantime is to filter by 'Due soon' (within 2 days), then flag actions due today, and then filter to show only flagged, but this is a bit cumbersome and takes time.

If anyone knows of a quicker way, I'd be grateful to hear it too. ;-)

Cheers, Jo
Dear Jo,


Muchas gracias,

I had the same issue and on the blog or in help somewhere found the solution.

Go to preferences / data and change "When entering due dates without times use..." to say 11:59 p.m.

On the same page, toggle "Make Actions due "soon" which are due in the next:.." to the 24 hour setting.

So it's Monday at 3 pm and you want to bump a task onto your perspective for tomorrow and get it off the screen right now. Change the due date to tomorrow's date, or type Tue, or type 1d in the date column, and that in effect makes the task due at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, which is more than 24 hours from now, so it disappears from your perspective for now. I assume that it would reappear at 11:59 p.m. Monday, but I am usually in bed by then.
