Reminders Search String

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a search string that generates only reminders overdue and due today.

-reminderTime:day+1 generates reminders overdue and due today and due tomorrow.

-reminderTime:day+0 generates reminders overdue (only).

So if +1 gives me overdue, today and tomorrow and +0 gives me overdue, how can I get only overdue and due today?

I use

reminderOrder:* -reminderTime:day+1 -reminderDoneTime:*
all reminders,      exclude future dated,   exclude completed

Right. I'm looking for overdue and due today.

this string...

reminderOrder:* -reminderTime:day+1 -reminderDoneTime:*

.....is resulting in overdue, due today and due tomorrow.

I've attached a screen shot where you can see (most of the string you propose) and one of the notes that's due tomorrow.

I noticed you reported that.

A possible issue is the time component.
The -reminderTime:day+1search excludes reminders dated  > tomorrow 00:00:00

What time did you assign to the  above reminder?
The default is 8am

I think the default is 8am

Interestingly, last night at 10pm (pacific) time, the search -reminderTime:day+1 did not include any reminders set for any time "today" but did include reminders set for 12:00am "tomorrow".

This morning at 5am (pacific) time, -reminderTime:day+1 does include all overdue (including all reminders from yesterday) and those due today, including those due at 12:00am this morning.

Upshot, is that for some reason it appears that the time of day the search takes place matters. I'll try the search at 10pm tonight again to see what shows up.
