I am using org-mode to organize my life. I got used to planning with DEADLINE. Additionally, I am using Effort property to predict how much effort that I have to show to finish all tasks.
org-agenda-columns C-c C-x C-c provide good interface to estimate effort in agenda. org-agenda shows today tasks, but it also shows future and overdue tasks at the same view like below in the picture. So, it makes really hard to understand how many hours that I have to spend today because it sums automatically all efforts.
I prepared small customized view to show just today tasks as I wanted, but these tasks are filtered with kind of regexp, so that reason, it's not possible to see next or previous days by using org-agenda-earlier and org-agenda-later
Is there any option to show only today's(not overdue and future) tasks in org-agenda?
Things that can help
* Main ** Today 1st task DEADLINE: <2017-01-25 Wed> :PROPERTIES: :EFFORT: 01:00 :END: ** Today 2nd task DEADLINE: <2017-01-25 Wed> :PROPERTIES: :EFFORT: 00:30 :END: ** Yesterday Overdue DEADLINE: <2017-01-24 Tue> :PROPERTIES: :EFFORT: 02:00 :END: ** Future task DEADLINE: <2017-01-30 Mon> :PROPERTIES: :EFFORT: 00:30 :END:
My non-interactive filter that shows todays tasks
(setq org-agenda-custom-commands '(("d" "daily" tags "DEADLINE>=\"<today>\"&DEADLINE<=\"<now>\"" ((org-agenda-sorting-strategy '(todo-state-down))) (org-agenda-overriding-header "TODAY tasks"))))
Example Interactive agenda-view that shows just A priority
(add-to-list 'org-agenda-custom-commands '("f" agenda "" ((org-agenda-skip-function (lambda nil (org-agenda-skip-entry-if (quote notregexp) "\\=.*\\[#A\\]"))) (org-agenda-ndays 0) (org-agenda-overriding-header "Today's Priority #A tasks: "))))
