Bug: Saved Search behaving incorrectly

See this screen shot of the saved search settings that are not giving valid results:

http://screencast.com/t/bwoOjDiLct

The search returns these results:

http://screencast.com/t/aISq93ZL

Note that some tasks are returned which do not have a start date in the next 1 day and which do not have more than 0 priority.

An earlier version of this query returned all -1 Negative priority tasks as well, so we added that extra (unnecessary) clause at the top to see that behavior.

Why is this happening? We've used this for a long time to train people on Toodledo, but with 3 days as the cutoff for Start Date.

Thanks.

This is because all of your search rules are combined with an "OR" which means that a task only needs to match one of the rules to appear, not all of them.

Sorry, that's not a correct analysis. We deliberately used OR, but the logic isn't being honored.

Ex: Click the second screencast to see the list of items it returned. One of them was "Create RDN Application". This did not satisfy any of the OR requirements (in the first screencast), but it was returned anyway. Many other tasks are similarly returned. THIS is the problem we are reporting.

Please advise. Should we submit a support ticket instead?

The search rule "start date was not in the last 9999 days" will match any task that starts in the future.

The task "Create RDN Application" has a start date of Jan 11, which is in the future.

So it should be displayed according to your search criteria.

Argh. Thanks. Should have been "Was in the last 9999 days."

FWIW, you can use "is before Tomorrow" instead of "was in the last 9999 days".
