Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Two-week Smart List

Tuesday, October 26, 2010 by Andrew Conkling

Ever feel overwhelmed by looking at all your tasks? This week's tip, shared by patrick.conwell, lets you peek at your upcoming tasks without being inundated with all of them.

I use RTM for everything I can think of. Some of the task have no due date, many do… and sometime I even miss deadlines (oops). All these tasks can get confusing, and it's easy to overlook one. So, I came up with a Smart List that will only show me the next two weeks worth of tasks, plus those tasks without due dates and those tasks that are overdue:

status:incomplete AND dueWithin:"2 weeks of today" OR dueBefore:today OR due:never

Keeps me organized, and I hope it helps you.
