I guess this is best explained by screenshots. I have one entry like this: enter image description here

then I run M-x org-agenda RET a RET and I get something like this: enter image description here

Problem is, I do not want this timestamp to show up in my agenda as it's the content under the heading Problems and solutions, instead of a Deadline or Scheduled time.

I've googled for a few hours but amazingly couldn't get any helpful information.

thanks in advance.

Edit

I found this and tried the solution (set org-agenda-search-headline-for-time provided anyway but had no luck. Also tried searching for something like -for-time as suggested but it didn't give me any more than org-agenda-search-headline-for-time.

You should be using inactive timestamps, delineated with [] rather than <>: [2020-02-08] instead of <2020-02-08>. See the Timestamps section of the Dates and Times chapter in the manual.

Just when I was going to give up, I came across this option in the source code:

org-agenda-skip-additional-timestamps-same-entry nil

"When nil, multiple same-day timestamps in entry make multiple agenda lines. When non-nil, after the search for timestamps has matched once in an entry, the rest of the entry will not be searched." :group 'org-agenda-skip :type 'boolean)

This should roughly solve the problem but I'm looking for something that will only include Deadline and Scheduled times.

  • See @mankoff's answer: you should be using inactive timestamps for this: [2020-02-08] instead of active ones like <2020-02-08>. – NickD Feb 8 at 5:40
