Re: Daily due dates for tasks in weekly journal


Hi Bruno,

Just a suggestion : it looks to me as your goal would be acheived if you
change the journal page setup from weekly to daily. Task list can be
sorted by date due then.

That's how I set up mine and it works very well. In the task
configuration page, I've set up index pages only on "Journal" and
"Actions" and I use tags to filter tasks.
