But nothing for non-dated reminders? I actually date very few of my task items.
Ah, I see what you're saying. A completed, non-dated Reminder looks exactly the same as a note without a Reminder (will flag for the team).
All of this really implies a need for expanding the search grammar, in a way that echoes, say, todo checkboxes (e.g. todo:, todo:true, todo:false). Since I don't know the full semantics of reminders yet, I can't offer a full set, but the following spring easily to mind: :
reminder: --> return all notes with reminders
reminder:complete --> return all notes with completed reminders
-reminder:complete --> return all notes with uncompleted reminders
reminder:dated --> return all notes with dated reminders
-reminder:dated --> return all notes with undated reminders
reminder:<datetime> --> return all notes with reminders with a date/time value that is greater than or equal to the <datetime>argument (a la created:, updated: search terms)
-reminder:<datetime> --> return all notes with reminders with a date/time value that is less than to the <datetime>argument
I tug on the search grammar string occasionally (most recently when Business notebooks were introduced; at that point (and I think it's still true), you were able to create filters on your note database (or "corpus" -- read it in the blog ) using the UI that you can't recreate in a saved search. This is inconsistent with previous incarnations of The Way Things Work as I understood it, so it bugs me.
Hopefully something like this is in the works for reminders.
It took a little poking around but I found one search parameter that allows you to search for notes that have the reminder feature turned on for them.
If you use:
That will filter for any note that has a reminder assigned to it. I still LOVE the ideas that jefito suggested, but this one will help in the mean time.
