Overdue Tasks

juliaharwood says:
If I have a task due in the 'today' category, and I don't complete it, it goes into the 'overdue category', but I wish it would show up the next day in the 'today' category again but flagged as overdue. Is there a tip/trick to make this happen?

Otherwise if I don't regualarly check my 'overdue' category I could miss something.

What you want is a smartlist that gathers up everything due before tomorrow. See for an overview and this for search expressions.

Sorry, the board swallowed them up.

i heartily recommend using smartlists, as ranbarton.
Also, if you click on "weekly planner" on the overview, it gives you all overdue actions and all actions for the upcoming week, quite useful!

I have a "TodayOrOverdue" smartlist for this, with the following rule:

dueBefore:today OR due:today
