Evernote has a built in “Reminders” functionality. We are somewhat replicating that functionality here, and using the !Daily task of 40-Review Reminders to trigger a regular view of deadlines and milestones.
As noted before, it helps to set your system date preferences for YYYY-MM-DD. Doing this allows sorting the reminder tags, 6-Waiting, by due date.

Any action item that is waiting on external action should be prefixed with a date to trigger follow up. Using Cntl+Alt+D inserts today’s date, which can easily be edited to the expected follow up date. For example:
- 2016-05-18 Request decision on Dandy entries
This line is then tagged with 6-Waiting, so that it shows up in the tag list. Note that the YYYY-MM-DD format brings the current reminders to the top of the list when sorted. This gives a quick view of what is due today, as well as for the next few days.
