Looking at next years repeating tasks Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
When you mark a task as repeating, as soon as you mark it completed OF generates a new task for next year (month, day, or whatever the cycle is).

Of course this can be VERY tiresome. I don't want to have to wade through a ton of tasks that have a start date so far into the future.

Unless I'm missing something (which is always likely :-) what I would like to have is a "notification" time period. What that means is that OF would hide the task from the list until the time (start-date - notification period). The time period would be set for each individual repeating task

For example if I put down a two week notification period, the task would not reappear on my list until two weeks before the next start date.

This means I won't have to look at the task "fertilize the lawn in May" all winter long.

Anyone else feel this way?
