"tomorrow morning"? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
in kGtd i often used to type "tomorrow" into the start field to postpone something till the next day - it would show up the very next morning. Just realised, however, that in OmniFocus at the moment, "tomorrow" gives you 24 hours from the current time. This has tripped me up a bit, because items i postponed in the afternoon do not turn up until the next afternoon. But i need them in the morning.

How do others feel about how "tomorrow" or "next week" etc should be parsed? And is there any other way that i could quickly set a date for "tomorrow morning"?

"tomorrow 7a" works.

Nice tip. It will be better when there is a column for due date. Using real language is a great help. I am thinking of setting up textexpander to make it even easier to add dates. For example, I can set up nnw to expand to next week or ttm to expand to tomorrow.

I noticed even without textexpander "tom 7a" works.

EDIT: never mind, it actually doesn't.

Wow! That is even better. These Omni folks are sharp!
nice, i'll use that. thanks.

i still think a date should be midnight default unless a time i specified
Whoops, I take that back, looks like "tom 7a" returns today at 7:00am. I'm guessing it ignores "tom" as something it doesn't understand.

While I'm here, for the record I agree that midnight as a default makes more sense...
I also vote for "tomorrow", "next week", etc. to default to midnight.
and "+24h" could be the specific alternate that would put you into tomorrow at this same time.

outlines some of the stuff you can do with dates.

I'd suggest typing "1d" for tomorrow, that's even shorter :)
