hi everyone, I want to use logseq to record my friend’s birthday and get notified beforehand, what do you guys think would be a good way? I am currently planning to make a series of date pages without years( eg. [] ), put the birthdays inside, and put a query on a daily page to get future-7-day-date-page blocks that contain #birthday . However, I am not quite sure how to query for [] according to the current day. Does datalog support such an operation?
or else I can use the schedule and repeating events function I guess. However, I feel that the schedule function design works inconsistently with the default journal page day(for example, if I go to the corresponding journal page, I would not be able to see what is scheduled on this day))
or else should I try to make a plugin for this purpose?
I take a different approach to this since I was emulating a lightweight PRM/CRM on my system I was kinda porting over from emacs org-mode. I’d love a way to pre-warn for specific dates like you can get in org-mode though (so, say a recurring bday date would ping you say 2 weeks or a month in advance in some sort of query).
So, I have a template and create a page for every person since I often link to them by name when in meeting or need to have a task assigned to them and track it later (I have a large team).
So, the template looks a bit like this for our mythical friend Jack Sparrow:
Ping: #2021w36 (this would be the week I need to reconnect with them - have a query)
Full Name: Jack Sparrow
Phone: +65 xxxx xxxx
WhatsApp: +65 xxxx xxxx
Company: Black Pearl Trading Co
Location: High seas
TODO Birthday: Xxx ddth, yyyy
DEADLINE: <yyyy-mm-dd Ddd +1y>
How We Met
In a harbourfront dive bar in Batavia… er, Jakarta [[Aug 21st, 1689]]
If I talk to them on a specific day, I just refer to them by name and that shows up in their page as a contact and what we might have talked about or done. Tis very handy.
It doesn’t solve the “warning” part of the reminder about the birthday but I’ve actually got a couple of queries in the advanced querying section to figure out a way to get a list of “Birthdays and anniversaries in Next Month” kind of thing.
Would that kinda work for you? (though I am still puzzling out the query… Logseq querying is kinda tough (tho I guess not really worse than emacs).
