Start Dates should default to the Future, not the Past Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Action Start dates should default to the future, even when not specifying a year. Currently, if you do not specify the year, the current year is used even if the month specified is in the past.

Ideally, users should not have to specify year, simply entering MO/DY should work, it actually does in most cases, but kinda breaks here.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new Action
2. Set the Start date in month/day format, such as 1/7 or 2/14.

OmniFocus will set the start date as 1/7/07 or 2/14/07, even if you are creating these dates a couple months out from the next occurence of the month, say in November or December 07.

Ideally OmniFocus should default to the future for start dates or even better us a basic logic to pick default year. Something like this:

IF current date is closer to specified start date in calendar moving forward AND date does not appear in this year's calendar moving forward THEN year defaults to next year ELSE year defaults to current year (past).
