Smartlist doesn't recognize tasks at 1pm

litenarata says:
I've set up several smart lists to group tasks by the time they are due. I have one for tasks due today at 4pm, 7pm, 10pm etc. But I can't set one for tasks due at 1pm. Even though I'm using the exact same criteria for each one, the 1pm task list says it's empty. I tried using 1300 but that didn't work, and also tried searching for tasks due tomorrow at 1pm, but that also failed. This is the query I'm using:

due:today AND due:1pm

And like I said, I swap out the 1 for literally any other time and it works fine. Any ideas? Am I missing something obvious?

It turns out the problem isn't the time, it's that the tasks were overdue. So the smart lists only work if the task time is still in the future? How do I fix that?

dueBefore:today AND due:1pm?

Hi litenarata,
It's not possible to include overdue tasks that are due at 1pm specifically, but you could search for tasks due at 1pm and overdue tasks with the following:

due:1pm OR dueBefore:today

(And you could swap today for now if you wanted tasks that were due today but earlier than the current time.)

Hope this helps!

That doesn't work but thanks for responding. It's really disappointing that such a simple query to show all the tasks due at a certain time is impossible.

@litenarata - try tagging? Aside from a 1pm due date, maybe tag all those tasks as "due-1pm" (or "due-lunch")? 🍕
