Postponing a recurring task


I'm sure this has been asked but I haven't found it in the forums.

How do you postpone one instance of a recurring task and not break the recurrence pattern?

I'd like to postpone a Saturday task to Sunday, for this week only, and have the recurrence schedule stay the same for next week.

Hello Don,

You can do this by using the "Schedule" feature. To do so, right-click on the task and then click on the ... icon on the right. You can select any date this way or one of the pre-set buttons to set the task to today, tomorrow, next week etc. and after that, when you complete the task, the recurrence pattern will still work correctly.

Only the "Postpone to" option moves it to the next occurrence without giving you a choice when it should be (it'll be the next one available) and also editing the date manually by editing the task can break the recurrence.

Best regards,
