I'm making an app where an event list is displayed into a table with sortable columns. Even if there is a Date column, I'd like something to show clearly the items that are planned for today in that list.

What is your opinion on this? Is there a known convention?


Just use the text "Today". As a "badge" style is no harm either. e.g.

The principle is always to match the users mental model.
