Not sure I understand the point of Start Date Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I know it may sound strange, but I'm not sure I understand the point of start dates for an action. Maybe I'm just looking at it wrong.
Example: I setup a project with multiple actions. All of them obviously have a due date because many of the actions can be completed in one day or less. Some of the actions will be longer and more ongoing - say 5 days. So I create the action and set the start date for Monday and the due date for Friday. During those 5 days, I'll be working a little bit each day on that particular task with the goal to be done by Friday.

It seems to me that when looking at my forecast or daily to-dos on Wednesday for example that I would be able to see that task on my list, but alas no. It only shows up on the due date. In the iPad version I can also select to view the forecast to include the start date as well, but the dates in the middle - nothing. On the default Due perspective, nothing shows up until the due date.
How am i looking at this wrong?
