Delegate, Defer, or Hide priority items

I have several items that deserve priorities, but do not yet need to be in front of my face. For example, and priority 1 @someday item - important, but deferred. But they would make my !!!Important list too long to be useful.

Some of these items are delegated to others, but tracked. They have a priority, but I don't need to do anything about it now.

It would be nice to have a way to keep those items out of my !!!Important list in my Agenda view.

Perhaps a #hide or #noshow tag? #delegated? #deferred?

As it stands, I can't afford to give these items priorities at all, which is unfortunate.

        Agreed. GTD encourages you to defer tasks to your calendar - these are not DUE dates, but dates before which you cannot start the task (Eg.., you can't talk to Dave until Dave is back in town next week).

        another way to think about this is snooze for X time

        +1 on a concept similar to this. I need the ability to defer start dates, e.g. I have a reoccurring item I need to do every Monday, but I cannot do it before Monday - so I want it invisible until then. This is the thing keeping me an alternate system unfortunately.

        While not perfect for this scenario, you can use the 'Star' option to mark items that you need to revisit in the future instead of using a #hide tag. You can search for " -* " to hide any starred items that may (or may not) have priorities already assigned to them.

        How about !Friday

        The event will become mildly important on Friday, or !!!November it will become very important on Nov 1st.
