Background: I have a home repair project involving carpentry that I initially set out to do myself with some help from a friend. I decided to get a bid from a contractor (in case the price is acceptable), and will be meeting him for a site visit.
I have about a dozen tasks that I need to do before meeting with him (research, documentation, drawing), but those tasks aren’t showing up in the timeline in the order I need them to to be prepared for the visit. To create a filter to temporarily show only those tasks, would it be better to select them, then assign a priority of 1 (I currently have no priority levels set on any tasks), or set an ‘end constraint is on or before’ date/time and filter on that?
(I initially looked at adding an ad-hoc flag of #flagged, and then putting that in the notes of the tasks I want to filter on, but I found that only works if I append it to the Name of tasks. Additionally, this is kind of a hack and takes more time, so I figure I’ll try to work within the more standard ways of filtering).
