Re: [Orgmode] [PATCH] only display a scheduled item if it is due today

Sorry for the late reply - this thread was filtered incorrectly.

The primary use I have for it is essentially what Nathan said - it controls display or recurring items to be the same as habits, with the exception of not displaying the habit graph.

I also use it when scheduling items that can't be started before a certain date.  For example, I recently got a note that my tax return was being inverstigated and that I should contact the IRS in 30 days.  Now, I schedule this item for 30 days from now, but in 23 days it starts showing up in my weekly agenda, even though there's nothing that can be done about it at that point.  I'd much rather have it only display when it can actually be worked on.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi Nathaniel,

I am not yet sure about the purpose of this functionality.
Items that are scheduled only show up in the agenda on the day when they are scheduled.  What is the added value?  Please explain, with an example.

One thing I've wanted from org-mode is the ability to have certain items 'hidden' from the agenda until the day they are scheduled - this patch implements this for all properties who have a STYLE property of 'hidden'.   I ended up implementing this(the patch is attached), and thought I'd contribute it to org-mode. If you have any comments, please let me know.
