 Repeating, with both start and due dates? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
 MattBaker Member 2008-02-19, 08:01 AM I would like to create a task that repeats every six months, with these criteria. Is there a way that I can do it?-- The Start Date would be six months from the completion date of the last time I finished that task. And the Due Date for the task would be one week from whatever the new Start Date is. Thank you. Post 1
 dbyler Member 2008-02-19, 08:34 AM You should be able to do this by.. - Set a start and due date for the current instance. Due date should be 1 week after start date (this interval will carry into the repeat) - Set to Repeat every 6 months from completion date Post 2
 OM man NI pad me hum Member 2008-05-26, 01:19 PM Should the "next start" date be today's date plus the "repeat every x days" number if you have the "Repeat from" set to "Completion date" ? I am running 1.0.2 and it isn't working that way. Post 3
 curt.clifton Member 2008-05-29, 05:16 AM It depends. If you have a start date but no due date, then the next start date will be as you suggest. However, if you have a due date, then the repeat step is used to calculate the due date. The start date is kept relative to the due date. For example, suppose you have a task "Mow the lawn". The task has a start date and a due date. Let's suppose the due date is 3 days after the start date. If you want to start the task 7 days after you complete it, then you need to set the repeat interval to 10 days. __________________ Cheers, Curt Post 4
 henri Member 2008-05-31, 05:03 PM It would be useful to me to be able to have the start and due dates linked. For a given action, I'd like to be able to choose which of the two depends on the other. So let's say I set it so that Due is one week after Start, then if I change Start to a day later, then Due would automatically be postponed by a day. For another action, I might decide that Start needs to be 4 days before Due. Then, if I change Due, Start would follow. Post 5
