How to see all tasks overdue by 1 week or more

geojono says:
Is it possible to see tasks that are overdue by a certain amount of time? I'd like to see tasks that are 1 week or more overdue. It seems that using dueWithin, dueAfter, or dueBefore with relative times ("1 week") rather than hard dates will always look future (1 week in the future). How can I tell it "1 week ago" for example?

So, to see all tasks that are overdue by 1 week or more, I'd use "dueBefore:1 week ago", but that doesn't work. Is there a way to do this without specifying a date?

Hi geojono,
It's not currently possible to search by a relative date in the past, sorry.

It's possible to hardcode a date in the past, but that may not work well for you.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

We all want negative day values in the searches!
dueAfter:"-5 days" would be great!
