Set new Start Date script? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Does anyone know of a script that will simply push out the start date of an action (or project) to x hours from now?

I have a lot of active tasks, but there are some times when I know I'm not going to be able to get to something until some time in the future, so I'd love to be able to move them off my "Available" list with only a click or two.

I currently have (and use often!) Daniel Byler's Defer by days script, and modified it to also have a Defer by hours script, but since a majority of the actions I currently have do not have a start date, those scripts don't work. Additionally, if there is a start date, it's not easy to figure out how many days/hours I need to push it out to get it to be only an hour or two from now.

I'd love to have a way to do this quickly without having to manually modify the start date of the action(s) in question.

Anyone know where I might be able to find a way to do this? I've tried modifying the scripts mentioned above, but can't seem to figure out how to get them to do what I want... Or, do any of you have suggestions on a better workflow which provides similar results?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
