Q: How to search dates within current week

[ I am posting this according to //gmane.org/post.php instructions.
I hope this works. ]

I am a beginner in using Orgmode. 
I would like to search for CLOSED items within the current week.

The closest posting was in 2007 entitled "search for dates as tag or property"
   http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/4506/match=date+search

I tried 2 approaches but have some problems.

1) Keywords - today, tomorrow, yesterday
   Is there a keyword for "thisweek"? in the vein of "today", "tomorrow".
   where "thisweek" means the current Mon-Sun window.

2) Match string : +CLOSED>="<-1w>"+CLOSED<="<0w>"
   Currently -1w is a moving window of the last 7 days, so the
   search result will change every day.

It is also possible there are simpler solutions I have not thought of.
For example, the Timeline would serve my purpose except that currently,
it only shows scheduled items, not closed items.

Thanks,

Hi,

Problem : search for CLOSED items in current week

It turns out that Orgmode has the functionality all along but being a newbie,
I did not ask the right question. Bernt Hansen's suggestion to use Timeline 
with C-u l provided the clue.

When I view the weekly agenda ( C-c a a ), I get a list of scheduled items. 
Press "l" to turn on logbook mode and presto!, I get a list of items closed for 
the same week.
I can change the time period with d,w,m,y to get daily, weekly, monthly or 
yearly view. To see the entire file, I switch to Timeline, and then turn on 
logbook mode.

In summary, logbook mode off always shows scheduled items while logbook mode on 
always shows closed times. The time frame being displayed depends on whether 
you are viewing daily, monthly, yearly or timeline.

The other neat thing is that when you press <left> or <right> to shift the date 
window, the logbook mode shows the closed items for the correct time frame.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks. I didn't realise that Org's Agenda mode/Timeline view has an "l" key for log mode. That shows all the items, closed and scheduled - exactly what I was looking for.

The Info page is somewhat sparse on this, but seeing how it works, it makes sense now.

What I would probably do if this is something you need often is make a
custom agenda view which sets org-agenda-log-mode-items to closed, and
then view the agenda for a week starting from some specific date with
the log items on.  This should be much faster than the timeline view (L)
since it limits the date range you are looking at.

The timeline might work - you can display closed and other timestamps in
the log with C-u l or configure what is displayed by default with l
using org-agenda-log-mode-items.

HTH,

Q: How to search dates within current week

[ I am posting this according to //gmane.org/post.php instructions.

I am a beginner in using Orgmode. 
I would like to search for CLOSED items within the current week.

The closest posting was in 2007 entitled "search for dates as tag or property"
   http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/4506/match=date+search

I tried 2 approaches but have some problems.

1) Keywords - today, tomorrow, yesterday
   Is there a keyword for "thisweek"? in the vein of "today", "tomorrow".
   where "thisweek" means the current Mon-Sun window.

2) Match string : +CLOSED>="<-1w>"+CLOSED<="<0w>"
   Currently -1w is a moving window of the last 7 days, so the
   search result will change every day.

It is also possible there are simpler solutions I have not thought of.
For example, the Timeline would serve my purpose except that currently,
it only shows scheduled items, not closed items.

Thanks,
