Feature request - option to hide an item and appear based on date defined


I want to request for the ability to choose to hide/unhide an item, not just when it’s checked off and controlled by the view option to hide or unhide the checked ones.

For example, sometimes I noted something down, but the action is not to be taken till like a few months later. On this occasion I mark a date on it, but wish I could hide it first. And when the time comes, it shows automatically. It will help make the view less distracted when future tasks are hidden first.



hello Kevin,
I think the filter answers your request. you can filter by date, and you can bookmark your filter to get direct access to the “view” you created.


I’d like to echo Kevin, searching does not provide the same usability as working directly on a document. For example, I use a document as a to do list and have reocurring tasks every Friday. In a perfect world I would only see that task on the Friday… Specially now that I can select a reocurring task… this would be a very very useful feature.


Not a direct solution but here’s how I do this:

What I have is a top level bullet point for ‘reminders’ and under that I have some sub-categories (like temporary, admin, social, health etc) and within those I have bullet points with dates on them. Some using the new recurring date. Then I have that collapsed almost all the time.

When I want to see what is due I have a top level filter (as a link in my main GTD document notes)

That filters for everything in the last 1000 months that isn’t also tagged with #historic so I can still keep records of things in there.
