Filter out future occurrences of a daily recurring task

colbin8r says:
I have a task that repeats every day (excluding Saturdays) that is a "Get Organized" task: it reminds me to plan my day.

I also have a few smart lists that help me organize my schoolwork such as:
- School today (start today or due w/in 5 days)
- School due soon (5 days)

I want the Get Organized task that's due today to show up in these lists, but not the occurrences that are due tomorrow, the next day, etc. Is there a good way to filter out those future occurrences in my smart lists?

Hi colbin8r,
You can rule out this task a few different ways, but it will require some kind of exclusion since you want these Smart Lists to show tasks for the next 5 days.

For example, you can rule out priority 3 tasks unless they're due today:

dueWithin:"5 days of today" AND NOT (priority:3 AND dueAfter:today)

or just rule out all future repeating tasks:

dueWithin:"5 days of today" AND NOT (isRepeating:true AND dueAfter:today)

Hope this helps!
