Add due date support for tasks

Helpful | Level 5

Can we have the ability to create tasks with due dates?  You know, that basic thing that all tasks have?  Would also want the ability to sort by this


A standard format like


  • [] <MM/DD/YYYY> <mention> <task text>


Would be super convenient.  Even better if you just put MM/DD in the date area, it defaulted to the current year for you.


(or DD/MM/YYYY for those across the pond)

getting an overview of tasks would be very useful

To be sorted by date

To be sorted by still open

To be sorted by person 


Now you can have task distributed throughout the entire document which are impossible to find back/keep track of that way.


Or is there perhaps some code that can be used to create such a summary?
