You can just reschedule the item (with e.g. C-c C-s) to the day you get home and want to start cleaning again. The item won't show up again until that new scheduled date and then the consistency chart will then show that the item is not due on the intervening dates (i.e. they are coloured blue):
** TODO clean house
SCHEDULED: <2015-07-14 Sat .+4d/6d&...
You might use a sequence of states that includes "SKIP".
For example, at the top of my .org file I have
#+TODO: TODO(t) WAIT(w@/!) | DONE(d!) CANCELED(c@) SKIP(s@)
Then you can use C-c C-t s from within the .org file, or t s from the agenda view to "skip" the occurrence of the habit, advancing it to the next scheduled date. Note that the @ sign ...
This seems to do the trick:
(defvar my/org-habit-show-graphs-everywhere nil
"If non-nil, show habit graphs in all types of agenda buffers.
Normally, habits display consistency graphs only in
\"agenda\"-type agenda buffers, not in other types of agenda
buffers. Set this variable to any non-nil variable to show
consistency graphs in all Org mode agendas.")...
Thanks to some guidance by Nicolas Goaziou, I created a solution that sorts the way I want by taking advantage of the user-defined sorting strategy:
(defun hw-org-agenda-sort-habits (a b)
"Sort habits first by user priority, then by schedule+deadline+consistency."
(let ((ha (get-text-property 1 'org-habit-p a))
(hb (get-text-property 1 'org-...
The great org-habit module lacks a way to handle a very common type of
habits, those that can/may/must be executed only on certain weekdays.
There exist several workarounds like creating a habit for each day of
interest, but they are less flexible and spoil the beauty of Org.
The key function is org-habit-get-priority which provides a numerical priority value for a habit. This value is then used as part of the sorting habit-down and will take higher precedence than your later keys. The default definition of org-habit-get-priority takes into account the consistency graph in a number of ways: it starts at 1000, adjusts by 10 for ...
I don't think there is an option for doing that, so if you really want it, you'll have to modify the Org mode sources and carry the patch privately (I doubt very much that this change would be accepted upstream). That means that every time that you want to update, you will have to apply the patch again (and again, and again...)
The patch itself is simple:
Set the variable org-habit-show-habits-only-for-today to nil.
org-habit-show-habits-only-for-today is a variable defined in `org-habit.el'.
If non-nil, only show habits on today's agenda, and not for future days.
Note that even when shown for future days, the graph is always
relative to the current effective date.
Then, your habits will ...
I have an Org capture template that tracks weight. It is a sub-capture under "health". The relevant snippet for the capture template is:
table-line (id "ID-TBL-WEIGHT") "|%?|%u|" :unnarrowed t)
And then I have a table that collects the data:
| Weight (...
This works fine for me on 9.2.6:
** TODO Practice
SCHEDULED: <2019-11-20 Fri .+1d>
:LAST_REPEAT: [2019-11-27 Wed]
It is hidden from the agenda view with S-K.
As you surmised, the order has been tightened in order to allow easier parsing: scheduling information (SCHEDULED/DEADLINE) has to come right after ...
You can display all habit graphs regardless of being due by setting (set 'org-habit-show-all-today t) or any non-nil value.
If you'd prefer to have your habits separated from the full agenda (or not see the full list outside weekly review) you can use a todo-tags view such as ("h" "Habits" tags-todo "STYLE=\"habit\"" ((org-agenda-overriding-header "Habits"))...
The global todo list is global, meaning that it lists all matching entries. Unfortunately, habit entries require TODO to be present in its headings, thus they will show up in the global todo list by default.
You can filter the global list by tags, categories, efforts, or regexp but these will not work with habits, because a habit entry is just an ordinary ...
For starters, my suggestion would be to use DEADLINE: rather than SCHEDULED:. See The Org Manual: Deadlines and scheduling for an explanation of the distinction. Namely:
SCHEDULED Meaning: you are planning to start working on that task on
the given date.
DEADLINE Meaning: the task (most likely a TODO item, though not
necessarily) is supposed ...
Thanks to @NickD commentary I was able to figure out the issue.
TL;DL: the problem was with the variable org-habit-graph-column that was set to 80 and I just changed to default (removed the line). I tested with 40 and it worked fine as well. That was the first suspicion of @NickD in his first commentary.
Fortunately I keep track of my .emacs changes in my ...
If your custom agenda view does not have an agenda portion, you will not be able to toggle habits on and off from that view. One of the first things that the function org-habit-toggle-habits (the command you are invoking with C-k, but which is just K for me) does before actually toggling habits, is the following check:
(org-agenda-check-type t 'agenda)
(setq org-extend-today-until 4
org-extend-today-until: Treat 4 AM as the time when the following day begins (instead of midnight)
org-use-effective-time: If you're up at say 1 AM like me right now, treat the time when you mark a TODO as done as 23:59 of the previous day, sensu stricto
