The date recognition feature mentioned in this article currently only works in English.
When you’re setting up dates in Pagico, a mini-calendar will popup to help you. But in addition to pick dates from the mini-calendar, you can also enter dates by typing. In fact, there are a lot of ways to enter a date, and almost all of them are faster and more powerful than picking dates from the calendar.
In order to type in the date input box, you need to use “Tab” key to navigate to that input box, rather than clicking on it (clicking on it will bring you the mini-calendar). Once the mini-calendar is there, you can’t type in the box any more.
What to type?
Pagico accepts a wide range of ways to describe a date. Here are some examples:
- “Yesterday”, “Today” or “Tomorrow”.
- “Next tuesday”, or “Last wednesday”.
- “+3 day” (three days from today) or “-1 week” (equals to “last week”)
Adding time to the date
Setting time is also easy. Just append the time info after the date, for example: “Tomorrow 10:00″ or “Today 10pm”.
Tips & Hints
Time is usually not displayed until you’re on that specific day. For example, if you write “Tomorrow 10pm”, then after saving you’ll see “Tomorrow” only. However, for tasks due on “today 10pm”, you’ll see “Today 20:00″ when saved.
