Don't convert dates

boothledboldly says:
Is there any setting that will stop RTM from doing "smart" conversions when it thinks it sees a due date in an item?

For instance, if I want to make a note to self that says "Peoria to Bloomington is 45 minutes," I'll get an entry that says "Peoria to Bloomington is" with a due date 45 minutes away. Any way to make it stop doing that?

You can disable that in the settings. The setting is under Tasks (I have RTM in another language so I don't know the exact name). Under Task there is a toggle named something similar to Date recognition.

Hi boothledboldly, and thanks johan.nilsson! That setting is what you would want, and you can find more specifics in our help pages. With that disabled you'd need to use ^due date to add a due date with Smart Add.

It's also possible to override that detection if you want to keep it enabled but avoid it manually.
