How do I query for tasks that are overdue 5 days ago? I just want to see my overdue days from 5 days past. Is there a query I can use for this?
Any date based view should be showing all your overdue tasks on top of the list. You can also search for "overdue" to see all your overdue items. Though, there is not one for a specific amount of days overdue.
It's not in the docs, but I found out you can use "yesterday" to at least see the tasks that are 1 day overdue.
I'd find it helpful if the syntax would be a bit more flexible, so you could query for tasks that are overdue for a specific period, e.g. "overdue 3 days"
Thank you for your feedback, we'll consider adding such option in the future and you're welcome to request it in our Votebox: https://todoist.com/Vote/
For now, you could use direct date search to fins such tasks. If you include the full date - 20.03.2014 it will show you tasks overdue on this specific day.
