    How to put this short,clear and concise?

    How to put this short,clear and concise?

    "You should have done that already two weeks ago"

    "But I couldn't because I wasn't informed about it"
    "I could only act: 1) according to the knowledge that I had then"
    2) by the information that I had then
    3) in the light of information that I had then
    4)within the information that I had then

    I guess these are all wrong, but couldn't come up with anything better.

    2&3 are fine, and I think 3 is the best.
