With the power of Smart Lists and tagging combined, there's pretty much an infinite number of ways to view your tasks (okay, I haven't personally counted, but I have it on good authority from Bob T. Monkey that it's limitless). This week's handy tip, shared by dumas, uses this magic combination to see particular tasks in advance:
I like to see what's coming up – some tasks with more notice than others. So I give them tags, like "oneweeknotice" and "twoweeksnotice", then use a Smart List:
(tag:oneweeknotice AND dueBefore:"1 week of today") OR (tag:twoweeksnotice AND dueBefore:"2 weeks of today")
