Hi,

I've got following custom agenda for exporting:

| ("n" "no TODO events +180d"
|  ((agenda "no TODO events +180d"
|           ((org-agenda-span 180)
|            (org-agenda-time-grid nil)
|            (org-agenda-entry-types '(:timestamp :sexp))
|            (org-agenda-skip-function
|             '(or
|               (org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'todo 'any);; skip if any TODO state is found
|               (org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'category "errors");; skip if any TODO state is found
|               (my-skip-tag "lp")
|           )))))
|  nil (,(concat my-org-files-path "agenda_180d_filtered_raw.html")))

(don't mind the stupid name - I may fix this as it is misleading
here)

This results in an HTML file that contains my appointments without the tasks.

Unfortunately, I sometimes seem to schedule appointments within open todos such as:

| * NEXT talk with Steve about the project X
| SCHEDULED: <2022-04-05 Tue>
| 
| - [X] ask him for a time-slot
| - we settled for: <2022-04-05 Tue 14:00-15:00>

Of course, those appointments are lost in my agenda export as
specified above. This is a bummer and I want to fix this somehow.

Tasks should be omitted only if there is no other time-stamp than
deadline or scheduled.

org-agenda-skip-if lists:
| scheduled     Check if there is a scheduled cookie
| notscheduled  Check if there is no scheduled cookie
| deadline      Check if there is a deadline
| notdeadline   Check if there is no deadline
| timestamp     Check if there is a timestamp (also deadline or scheduled)
| nottimestamp  Check if there is no timestamp (also deadline or scheduled)
| regexp        Check if regexp matches
| notregexp     Check if regexp does not match.
| todo          Check if TODO keyword matches
| nottodo       Check if TODO keyword does not match

How is it possible to accomplish this? I think this would require
something like "Check if there is a timestamp (except deadline or
scheduled)" which isn't available yet.

Any ideas on that one?

I think you will need to write a custom ~org-agenda-skip-function~.

It's late and I am too tired, but if you are still floundering about 
after some days, send another mail and I will see what I can do to help. 
  :)

Cheers,

I realized there is probably an even easier way (no custom ELisp
required), simply by creating a separate child heading for the meeting,
which should then show up.  Assuming I am following you correctly, how
about:

#+begin_src org

* PROJECT Project X
  :PROPERTIES:
  :CATEGORY:             P:X
  :END:

** PROJECT Discuss 'topic' with Steve

*** DONE Ask Steve for a time-slot

*** Meeting with steve
<2022-04-05 Tue 14:00>--<2022-04-05 Tue 15:00>

#+end_src

N.B. the indentation levels.

Couple notes here:

1. If you set CATEGORY on the parent, and have enabled inheritance, the
'P:X' should appear on left side in your agenda, at the time of this
meeting, giving context.  The 'P:' convention is just what I use to
denote a Project (as opposed to an Area).

2. I follow GTD here, where anything with more subtasks is itself also
considered another 'project'.  You don't have to.  In fact one of my
todo keywords is actually PROJECT.

3. I guess you could use SCHEDULED just as well, but if you carefully
read the manual, this is not the intent of SCHEDULED.  An appointment
(like this) should simply be a time slot (as I showed above).  You can
of course do whatever you like.  :)

I have included some things here that I might do which are not strictly
necessary to solving your problem, but hopefully you can adapt this to
your needs.

Cheers,
TRS-80

(org-agenda-skip-function
 '(or
   (and (org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'todo 'any);; skip if any TODO state is found
	(org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'deadline 'scheduled))
   (org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'category "errors");; skip if any TODO state is found
   (my-skip-tag "lp")))

Best,
Ihor

Thanks for the idea. This is my current workaround. However, it
happens in longer headings that I insert a time/datestamp at the end
without realizing that I'm working in a todo heading. This is an
issue for me because I do have to check every time I'm using
timestamps. It's rather obvious that I fail from time to time and I
lose the entry on my non-todo-agenda.
