Custom perspective: Due soon, Overdue, and Deferred (but not until the deferred date has passed))

I’m trying to do something that seems fairly simple to me, basically I’m trying to create a custom perspective that shows the following:

  • Due soon
  • Flagged
  • Not completed
  • Deferred (but only AFTER the defer date has been reached)
  • Overdue

The first three were easy. The second two… Not so much…

I have a repeating task, and if I check it off, it immediately reappears in my current custom perspective. This is the perspective setup I currently have:

* None:
** Availability: Completed
* Status: Due Soon
* Status: Flagged

If I defer something, it still shows up here, so I looked for something like “hasn’t reached deferred date,” but I’m not seeing anything.

Similarly, I don’t see an option to list overdue tasks in this perspective.

Would anyone be able to assist me in finding out a way to do this? I am aware of this omnigroup blog post, but it doesn’t seem to explain setting this up in a new perspective (or perhaps I am misreading something–that is most certainly possible!)

Thanks! ^_^

Use ‘Availability: Available’. Then, deferred tasks will only appear once the date has been reached (and blocked tasks won’t appear either).

‘Due Soon’ includes overdue tasks.

That works perfectly. Thank you so much for the help!
