Is there a search query for "Show tasks created over 1 month ago"?

2ndly says:
Hello, I love RTM's flexible queries for smart lists, they're awesome.

I'm constantly adding tasks to my lists, and sometimes I find that there are old tasks I may not need anymore, or have slipped through the cracks.

Is there a way to create a smart list that only shows me tasks created OVER a month ago? It could be any time (over a week ago, etc).

I've tried "addedBefore:" but I can only use a hard date. ie: "addedBefore: May 1" or something.

Any ideas? Thank you.

Hi 2ndly,
The best way would be to use 'addedWithin', for example:

addedWithin:"1 month of today"

Hope this helps!

Hi 2ndly and andrewski,

Thanks so much for asking this and andrewski's suggestion!

I now have a smart list called Neglected Tasks:
isRepeating:false AND NOT addedWithin:"1 month of Today"

It does have 3 tasks that had slipped through the cracks -- this is great to add to my reviews. I might change it to three weeks!

Hey Andrew,

Thank you! I used NOT addedWithin:"1 month of today" to get all the tasks older than 1 month. Without the "NOT" it did not work as well.

Whoops, yes 2ndly, that would be the way to go to find the older tasks. Sorry I misspoke there, but I'm glad you figured it out.

Thanks to qakq for your help too! :)
