Today task not showing on home page

  1. 10 months ago

    Don't know what I am doing wrong but I have a daily todo task that is not showing up on the homepage.

    I have tried different settings and restarting doogiepim but nothing works.

    I took some screenshots to help explain how I have set the task up but I do not see an option to attach or insert them in this conversation. I also cannot find any answers in help or to my exact problem in the community.

    To show on image on this forum

    Use imgur.com They are free, you don't need to open an account and it's just a matter of getting the image URL from them then inserting that URL into a post in here. I won't be implementing image upload direct to this server due to obvious image upload abuse from bad people.

    Don't use your local DropBox/OneDrive URL as only you would see the image. A public URL is needed.

    Thanks for sending the screenshots.

    From the information you gave, in the "Customise Home Page" [Tasks] you have selected the "Completed Date" as "Today". This means "Only show Tasks that have been COMPLETED today".

    The Date Range criteria is a logical AND not an OR clause, meaning that the Task must satisify all the date range conditions before it will show.

    To rectify, simply change the "Completed Date" to "Any". Everything else looks fine as it is.

    I hope this helps.

  5. Thank you, that worked. The reason I selected "completed today" is because I do not want to see the completed tasks (I archive what I want to keep) and even though I have unchecked show completed and only show "open" tasks they still show

    Try marking them as "Closed" too. The Open and Closed states are different to the Completed state and may help in the filter display. If you only mark them as Completed and Open they will display as they are still an open task.

    I hope this little snippet helps.
