I'm trying to use the following line in my controller to capture all tasks due less than a week from the current date:
@due_this_week = current_user.tasks.where(due_date: Date.today..1.week.from_now)
@overdue = current_user.tasks.where("due_date <= ?", Date.today)
Turns out my controller somehow wasn't set up correctly and was no longer saving the
current_user's ID when creating new assignments, which is why they weren't being found. I figured this out using the rails console and running a find on the last few assignments submitted. The
user_id was set to
nil. Thanks for the assist @mu is too short.
