Repeating task but does not create a new task

a_person says:
Can I have a task that repeats every 3 days e.g. "Work on side project for 2 hours". But if I decide to miss it or skip it, due to other stuff, then it will self-close by the end of the day?

Maybe this is me being bad with my organization skills, but some things repeat many times but I'd still like to be reminded about it without seeing I've skipped it four times.

Hi a_person,
We offer an "after" repeat e.g. "after 3 days" that will repeat this way. It will only generate the next task when you complete the current one, and isn't affected by postponing.

You can see more on our repeat format page.

Hope this helps!

Hi andrewski,

That is very useful! I'm going to switch all my repeating tasks to this.
