Yesterday I created a filter under Projects (which is also displayed on the left-hand side) The aim of the filter is to display all tasks for today and the overdue tasks. This also worked yesterday. When I opened the filter again today, it only showed me the overdue tasks. It seems that the “now/d” command is not dynamic. Today I created a list with the same settings and with the new list I see the tasks that are due today. → I would not need this filter if my settings were saved under “Upcoming”
Can you reproduce this on try?
I created something but I found a mistake on my side and (I assume) on Vikunja’s side.
Attaced you see the settings from my cloud.vikunja.
It is super clumpy to change the field from a date to a string, but anyway.
My mistake was that I didn’t use now/d+1d - I just use now/d. But it is still strange that I saw all Tasks, also from the same day, when created the FIlter in cloud.vikunja.
On try.vikunja and in cloud.vikunja it is not possible to write now/d+1d. As soon as I type the “+” the edit field converts the sting into a date.
That sounds like a bug. I’ll take a look.
The input is fixed. Very good. Now you can enter now/d+… can be entered. With restriction, see below.
Whether the “now” is dynamic or static I can check tomorrow.
New bug I:
If I set the date as in the screenshot, enter the date manually (without selection via the calendar), and then go to the second Edith field, Vikunja crashes.
At the point shown in the screenshot.
Nwuer Bug II:
When selecting a date range (start and stop) date via the calendar view, Vikunja crashes.
Further suggestions for improvement:
- Enter the (start or end) date directly in the edit field. This is currently not possible. I will provide a more detailed description when the bug(s) have been fixed.
- It seems to be practical to select a start and end date in the calendar at the same time. But it is totally impractical if you only want to select one date. Just the start date or just the end date. This is currently not possible.
Use case: I want to enter the end date now/d+1d for all tasks and enter 01.01.2000 as the start date via the calendar. This is not possible. Incidentally, this date cannot be entered manually and must be entered via the calendar.
Once a date has been entered, it can only be adjusted via the calendar. Any typing in the Edith field leads to strange results.
There is now a workaround in place to prevent the two bugs from happening (602d15985b). Please note, everything related to filters is maintenance-only until the new filter syntax is done.
