Hi there! Since 2.1.0, cras allows for manipulating task lists whose date is in the future (as opposed to the current day). This was a super welcome change that made cras quite more flexible... Most notably, it allows you to use cras to set a task list for the week, for example. Or for the year. Or for whatever you want, as long as the date is set to the future. The problem is that all the documentation still implies that cras behaves in the pre-2.1.x way, namely, that the task list would *only* be accessible *on* the date registered on the task list. This affects some of the error messages shown on screen as well. I'm going to add a ticket about updating all docs and error messages to cras's actual behavior. I wanted to inform the community via this ML though because it will *look like* cras's goals and behavior would have changed... but actually this is more of a case of outdated docs. This means that despite the changes, this is going to forseeably become revision version 2.1.3; the API isn't really going to change in any way at all. *Maybe* in a later version some shorthand codes might be added to the -w option... a bit like the 'y' (yesterday) shorthand included in schain 2.4.0. In schain past dates make sense, in cras only future dates do... So, maybe, having '-w 1w' to set the expiry date to one week from today's date may make some sense. I need to think more about this particular issue, but I'd love to hear your thought on it!

+1 on the date alias! Currently I have to use a shell alias to make planning for tomorrow convenient, but it is certainly not as flexible as a command.

I do think this is probably a winner feature that was long due. This design needs some thinking through, for sure. -- Ariadna Vigo Web: <https://ariadnavigo.xyz> PGP: 0xA3B1324836A669BD
