Number of late items for a day via API
I've been pulling my Todoist data and playing with it in Python Pandas, and it's been very interesting. I was thinking about doing some blog posts about it and posting the code.
I'd really like to know how many late items I had on a given day in the past, but this kind of information doesn't seem to be stored in the data I get from the API. I'd also love to get a list of all the items I had due on a specific day (counting ones that I later moved to a different day).
Can you guys think of a way to calculate the number of late items or something like that?
Regarding your question how many items you've had on a given day in the past - we don't expose this information via the API, because we don't keep track of these data ourselves.
As for listing all items you've had due on a specific day - we have a "query" API http://todoist.com/API/#query , and you can use it in the following way: https://todoist.com/API/query?token=your_token&queries=["2013-08-07"] If you wants to use non-standard queries and make some statistics, we suggest to use our sync API, create internal model of your projects and tasks, and then used it in any way you want.
