I am trying to use Powerfilter in a very simple example, and "it does not work". Probably it is something I am doing worng, but I cannot understand how it Works.


Example: 2 tasks with milestones 30th May and 30th June. When I powerfilter due task this month (june), it should only appear the task due 30th June, but not the task due 30th May. They appear after the filter both.

Hi Pedro I don't fully understand your question, in that MM Power Filter looks for Task Ending date, not Due Date.  However a filter for 'Task Ending this month' will only show Tasks with Ending dates this month.  
If you have set Milestone tasks i.e. Tasks with Start and End dates the same as 'Milestones' you need to de-activate the "Milestone" box in the Power Filter window, otherwise the Filter will find Tasks ending this month and/or any Milestone Tasks (e.g. Milestones from previous months)
Hope this helps
Regards
Colin

Than you very much Colin. My mistake was to check the milestone box in the powerfilter. It was showing all the milestones, not only the ending this month, but all in tha map.
