Searching for "repeating every" vs "repeating after"

sayanee says:
I just discovered the difference between "repeating every" vs "repeating after". All this while I have only been using "repeating every" when many household tasks should have been "repeating after".

I would like to make a smart search on the various tasks that are repeating every and then I would like to change them to repeating after. I was only able to do "isRepeating:true" that will give me both types of repeats.

Any idea on what should my smart search query be in order to segregate both types of repeats?

Thanks for getting in touch sayanee!

Ok, there's no way to differentiate between those two types of repeats. But perhaps you could add in another variable.

For instance, from what I can tell, you're only looking to change tasks that haven't been updated already - any task you have changed you don't want to appear.

So, you could search: isRepeating:true AND NOT updatedWithin:"1 week of today", for example, to exclude those tasks.

You should be able to have a play to get it working for you but do let me know if I can help further
