Subject: org-agenda-move-date-from-past-immediately-to-today could work for non-days
Date: Sun, 20 Jun 2021 15:40:36 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAJcAo8vC2pcP1PD0aGuYPdPFhPxBAOZrPbpt5CazHquUEoggYw@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

org-agenda-move-date-from-past-immediately-to-today moves a ts
immediately to today in agenda, but only if you do
org-agenda-do-date-later by one day.  if you instead do it by 7 days
or so, it will check and not do the feature.

i keep getting surprised by this, so i thought perhaps newcomers would
be too.  do you think it makes sense to drop that check and make the
variable work consistently for all time periods?  imo that would be
the least surprising and most useful behavior.

the drawbck of not dong so is that you take past scheduled, for
example, and move them by weeks into the future, only to find out
later that you moved them into the past.  but perhaps others have
different sensibilities and there is some reason for the check.
