How to hide a task, that I only can start working on x dayes, months in future?

This is allso for the other apps. I just like to have a way to say to ToDoist, show me this task in 7 dayes, or on the 1/june...
There is some tasks you think of now, but you can only DO in the future.

Ex. I'm gonna be a dad soon, and I have a ton of things and idears I like to type in, but I don't like to see them before a month before my wife give birth to my our child.

If there a way to do this?

Hello Daniel,

If you add a task and set its due date to "20 Sep", then you will never see it on your 7 days list until 20 Sep approaches. You can't make this task invisible within a project, though.

For recurring tasks, you can set dates such as "every day starting 20 Sep" or "ev Fri starting in 20 days" and again - you will not see this task in the daily, weekly or monthly views until their date approaches, but you will see them within their projects.

Best regards,

Hello David

It's not quite what I'm looking for, and I don't like to set due date, when it's not a due date...

So the only way I can do this, is by making a Project (future) and have future tasks and projects in it.
And then set a reminder on the tasks to the future date, as I see it and understand TodoIst?

Yes, that would work - all of these tasks would be in the same place and you can schedule them later whenever you like (and/or set a reminder to each of them for later).

Best regards,
