Smart add with date in name?

ethan.roday says:
Let's say I want to add a task such as "Investigate attending conference on 11/14". Currently, if I use smart add, I get a task called "Investigate attending conference on" that's due on 11/14. How do I enter a task name that contains a date?

I do "... on NOV14". It's not recognized as a date because there is no space.

One advantage is searching for NOV* to see all the tasks needed for November events that otherwise are not related by any criteria.

I capitalize them so they stand out on any list I look at

Hi ethan.roday,
azclaire's idea is a good one. (Thanks for sharing!)

You can also use one of our Smart Add examples to avoid this as well (or disable Date Detection overall if you don't use it).

Hope this helps!

Thanks, andrewski. Quotes were exactly what I was looking for.
