Filtering by "Due Today" Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I know that the OmniFocus preferences panel allows adjustments to the time window of "Due Soon", ranging from 24hrs to a week.

I would also like to have a perspective displaying all my tasks that are due today, i.e. on the current calendar day from 00:00am until 23:59pm.

An alternative (perhaps easier to implement?) would be to allow shorter time windows for "Due Soon", e.g. 12 or 14 hours.

Is anything like this currently possible? Perhaps a hidden preference in the plst files? Any chance we may see such a feature in the future?

Thank you.

The built-in "due" perspective displays all "due soon" and "overdue" items and groups them by due date. If you have items due today, a "due today" grouping is displayed. You can then simply collapse the groupings you're not interested in.

Does that do the trick?

Thanks, Dennis. That helps but does not fully address my concern because it only works when tasks in the perspective are grouped by due date. I was instead hoping to have such filtering-out functionality available in all perspectives.
I have the same problem but mainly with "start today". I think there's a case for a couple of check boxes in Perspectives... "Started" and "Due". That way you'd be able to have a Perspective with any permutation of other filtering, grouping, sorting, etc, but only see those items that have a start date/time (unless it is a future date/time) and/or those items that are due according to the definition established in prefs.
Like many people, I use Start dates to create lists of the things I want to do at any particular time (usually "Today") but I don't want to have to always work out of a Perspective that is grouped by Start Date.
