Difference between due date and deadline

troffmo5 says:
How can i separate tasks that has to be done in a specific day (e.g. a phone call on Monday or go to the opening at Saturday the 14th) and tasks with deadlines (e.g. buy present before birthday, buy ticket before concert?

Hi troffmo5,
Currently, the only task field that accepts a date is the Due date which can be used for either of these purposes.

To differentiate between them, it may be helpful to use tags. For example, all tasks that have hard deadlines could be tagged with deadline. You could then search for these tasks with a search like:

due:today AND tag:deadline

Hope that helps!
