How do you use dates again?


#1

Hi Jesse

Love Taskpaper and the light textbased approach to making lists. Been using it since the first version.

I have been reading all about using due-dates in the forum, and tried to comprehend your guide to queries based on dates.

But I just don’t understand it. What am I supposed to write in a tag if I want to use the date-specific queries in Taskpaper?

Regards!

You need ISO pattern dates or date times in the tags themselves

and you can use some informal expressions in the queries.

If you want to be able to type the informal expressions in the tags themselves, and have them automatically converted to the required ISO pattern when you close the final “)” you can experiment with this:
