Search query trouble

tekla.sauter says:
I am trying to create a smart list that will show tasks due within the next week as well as tasks that I have completed today (to give a sense of accomplishment!)

I don't like that the tasks I mark complete disappear automatically, but I also don't want my task list overrun with completed tasks.

When I try this search query: "dueBefore:"1 week from today" and completed:today" I get no results.

Is there a way to do this that I'm overlooking?

replace AND with OR

one task is either due 1 week from today OR completed today

so the list will contain AND tasks due AND tasks completed

Simple Boolean error. Thanks.

Hmm...this still doesn't work. It still only gives me incomplete tasks. Perhaps there's no way of showing both at the same time.

Thanks for your help anyway.

Hey tekla.sauter,

It's only possible to have incomplete and completed tasks in separate views, sorry.
