Hi group,

I have got around 4 projects running at a time. As per philosophy of
GTD, sometime I get some TODOs, and without thinking much about them
at the time, I use remember package to just list them as a TODO in
correct Category. At the end of the day, I would like to have a list
of my unscheduled TODOs, of School Category separately. I am using a
custom agenda for this. But using org-agenda-todo-ignore-with-date is
not working in the following form:

 '(org-agenda-custom-commands
(quote (("t" "Today!!!"
((agenda "" ((org-agenda-ndays 1)))
(tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"School\"" (org-agenda-todo-ignore-with-date 1 ))
(tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"CRS\"" nil)
(tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"Study\"" nil)
(tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"Practice\"" nil)
(tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"Reading\"" nil)
(tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"Other\"" nil))))))

As you might have guessed, I am pretty new to the world of emacs. If
you could look into this and let me know some better suggestion, I
would be grateful.

Thanks.

Saurabh.

Something like this perhaps.  Untested.. but key takeaway is using the
org-agenda-skip-function.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
      (quote (("t" "Today!!!"
               ((agenda "" ((org-agenda-ndays 1)))
                (tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"School\""
                           (org-agenda-skip-function
'(org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'deadline 'scheduled)))
                (tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"CRS\"" nil)
                (tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"Study\"" nil)
                (tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"Practice\"" nil)
                (tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"Reading\"" nil)
                (tags-todo "CATEGORY=\"Other\"" nil))))))

Thanks for the reply Manish.

But after I modify my .emacs, I get the following error on starting
the custom agenda:

byte-code: Before first headline at position 1462 in buffer *Org Agenda*

Could you please suggest something? I am unable to debug this.

Is this better?

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands

Thanks Manish, now it works... like a charm.. :)

Another problem though..

Sometimes, the TODOs haven't been "scheduled" but have a timestamp on
them. I would like to ignore them too..
However, using option "with-date" along with "deadline" and "schedule"
does not seem to work in org-agenda-skip-entry. Is this option not
valid?

So, I have used a bad hack as: org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'regexp "<2"

As any entry with timestamp anywhere will have <2009- and so on. This
is working well as per my needs, though.

Regards,

Saurabh.

Pretty clever for someone who claims to be new to Emacs :-)

`with-date' does not exist, but I have just added `timestamp'
and `nottimestamp' conditions.

Thanks Carsten. Actually I am very new to emacs and have started
gaining an idea of elisp. I am just following all the tutorials
available around.

And I want to thank you personally for this awesome piece of software.

Regards,

Saurabh.
