Hi,
I'm getting confused with sorting agenda views.  Hopefully someone can
help me out.

I have a custom agenda view that, today, looks like this:

Friday     18 March 2011
  UTMIE:      In  13 d.:  TODO [#A] Annual Report
  Matthew:    In  -1 d.:  TODO Edit Matthew's thesis.
  iMac:       Deadline:   TODO Archive email > Thunderbird
  iMe:        In   1 d.:  REVIEW Tag my zotero library
  8101:       In   5 d.:  REVIEW Grade Assignment 4

The second item is late.
I wish I could get late items to show up first, before all else.
At the moment, the custom agenda command includes this bit:

("0" "Show ACTIVE/REVIEW/BUG tasks"
	 ((agenda "" ((org-agenda-sorting-strategy
		       (quote ((agenda time-up priority-down))))))
	  (todo "REVIEW|ACTIVE|WIP")))

I thought that doing this would make sure late items came first.
In my .emacs, I also have this bit in custom-set-variables:

 '(org-agenda-sorting-strategy
   (quote ((agenda time-up priority-down)
	   (todo priority-down)
	   )))

I checked the doc and google, and I can't find anything helpful.

Can someone advise me?

Cheers.
Fil

Hi Filippo,

I have a custom agenda sorting function that orders items in the agenda
specifically the way I want.  You should be able to adapt this for your
needs.  Details are at http://doc.norang.ca/org-mode.html#sec-16_3_5

Regards,

Bernt,
Thanks.  I've been reading your page on org; I just haven't gotten to
section 16 yet. :)
Cheers.
