overdue recurring tasks showing up under "today"

ML

i have two recurring tasks scheduled (on sun, mon, tue, wed, thu) to help me organise my work week:
- prepare tomorrow's lunch
- prepare tomorrow's clothes

today is saturday, but these overdue tasks are showing up under "today".

can i get them to show up under "tomorrow" (sunday) instead?

Michelle,

What, exactly, do you have in the Due Date dialogue box (please copy and paste from that dialogue box)? When was the last time that you completed the task (was it yesterday)?

my homescreen looks like this:

i think i know what's going on. i have a project labelled "today", which is different from the default todoist "today".

in any case, can i still get the two recurring tasks to appear under "tomorrow sun 5 jan" rather than as "overdue"?

Michelle,

Yes, I think that is correct. You have a "*Project* named Today; I thought you were referencing the Today *View*. :)

The way that Recurring Tasks work is that when you Complete a Recurring Task ('check the box', so to speak), the Task will be carried forward to the next Due Date. The reason that the Tasks are shown as overdue is that (I believe) you have not marked these tasks as complete.

The Due Date dialogue that I mentioned earlier is where you set the Due Date; the Due Date can be a Date, a Date and Time, or a Recurring Date or a Recurring Date and Time. It is to the right of the Task entry dialogue.
