Complex Query - Deferred Tasks

answered

#1

How can I make this search work in Dynalist:

-has:date OR
(has:date and -#defer) OR
( has:date #defer until:today )

I’m wanting to be able to defer tasks by writing something like: “#defer 2020-01-01”.

So this search says, “show me items ‘without dates’ or ‘with dates but not #defer’ or ‘with defer dates that have arrived’”

Remove the “and”.

AND is implicit, every space can be understood was AND. With “and” you’re searching for “and” literally.
