Conditional Lists

bugsie says:
For some time I've been trying to work out whether there is a way of applying "external" conditions to lists. For example:

IF TODAY IS SATURDAY OR SUNDAY, SHOW TASKS TAGGED "weekend"

IF TIME IS LATER THAN 6PM, SHOW TASKS TAGGED "evening".

Any thoughts?

One approach could be to have, for example, six separate lists that cover a range of conditions, and then have a starting view that would redirect to one of those lists based on conditions.

The only way I can think of doing something like this would be to use the API and externally process those tasks in some way. That's what I have done for some different scenarios.

For example I have one script that changes the priority of a task based on how many subtasks I've completed in a day, and then it no longer appears on my several smart lists. The following day, it gets updated and is back on the list.
