Dear All,

i'm in org-mode for already some years. However I am still struggling with how 
to setup the workflow such, that it actually works with the mobileorg agenda. 
What I need is to display

a) daily agenda
b) datetree with say next 90 days
c) show specific tags

Now, with scenario (c) there is no issue at all as mobileorg can be setup such, 
that it shows within specified files tags of your interest. I have a problem 
with scenarios (a) and (b). First, I did not find any method, how to filter 
mobileorg agendas based on something like 'today', so displaying daily agenda I 
would have to 'somehow' force org-mobile-push to add to 'today's' items a 
specific tag. Is there any better way how to set it up?

This comes to the problems of scenario (b) as well. The best for me would be, 
if I could just display 90 days datetree exactly as I produce it into the diary 
(using capture into datetree). This works, but it does not serve to the 
purpose, as the datetree is not corresponding to the actual timestamp. E.g.

on 17th Dec 2015 I have made an appointment for 1st january 2016 as such:

* 2015
** 2015-12 December
*** 2015-12-17 Thursday
**** dinner with Mia
<2016-01-01 Thu 22:00-23:00>

I do not want to display on my mobileorg this particular datetree as it is 
provides misleading information. When I would enter into 2016/01/01 entry, I 
would not see that I shall meet with Mia, I would see it when entering into 
december's record.

So now the question is, how to setup the diary workflow such, that a datetree 
with correct timestamps would be actually generated? Hence what I would like to 
see in my mobileorg agenda is:

* 2016
** 2016-01 January
*** 2016-01-01 Thu
**** 22:00-23:00 dinner with Mia

so somebody asks me what i do on 1st january, I would dig into the datetree and 
I would see immediatelly this event? 

All that is quite confusing. At the same time, the capture workflow works 
pretty well, and especially with combination of capture widget one can capture 
the data really quickly and transport to emacs.

Or is there any other workflow, which would assure to act mobileorg as a true 
(readonly) agenda?
