* Agenda view: ignoring everything that is DONE

I want to include in my agenda only things that are TODO, or are 
scheduled and not marked DONE, or have a deadline and are not marked 
DONE.  This is how agenda worked a year ago before I went on maternity 
leave, and now something has changed and I am seeing lots of DONE tasks 
which had a deadline -780 days ago.

I have tried removing all org customisations relating to the agenda and 
todo list, and have read the agenda part of the manual, but I can't get 
this to work.

Can anyone help?

Thanks, Chris.

You can use:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-done t)
(setq org-agenda-skip-deadline-if-done t)
(setq org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-done t)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This is in the FAQ:

Jason,

thank you for the quick reply.  I do have those variables set.  I have 
now commented one by one every line in my org setup and customisation 
and found that the problem only occurs when customize includes the line:

'(org-todo-keywords (quote ((sequence "TODO" "DONE" "|" "CANCELLED"))))

This I set from within customize-variable, and appears to follow the 
description given for that variable.  Perhaps it is clashing with 
something else, I will keep searching, but if you know of anything else 
that is possibly responsible I would be grateful.

Chris.

I think the vertical bar placement is your problem, from the manual:

"The vertical bar separates the TODO keywords (states that need action)
from the DONE states (which need no further action)."

Try this:

'((sequence "TODO" "|" "DONE" "CANCELLED"))

Regards,
Jason

I think you need "DONE" on the other side of the pipe for your desired
action to work properly.

,--- http://orgmode.org/manual/Workflow-states.html). ---
| The vertical bar separates the TODO keywords (states that need action)
| from the DONE states (which need no further action).

Chris,

I believe this is indeed the problem. The pipe chr '|' sperates done from
not done states: todo states on the left of it are considered undone and on
the right, done. So, swap 'DONE' and '|' and I expect you will be sorted.

Best,

Brian vdB
