Postponing only one occurrence of a repeated task

I have a monthly recurrent task. I would like to postpone only one occurrence. Which options do I have:
1. I can postpone it to the next day (irrespective if it's weekday or weekend)
2. I can postpone it to next week (basically to next Monday)
3. I can postpone it to next planned occurrence
4. I can postpone it to next month
Am I missing something?

How can I set a new date for just only one occurrence without changing whole series? I can postpone current occurrence and create a new task for specified date. But is there an easier way?

Thank you.

Hi Alexander,

You should just be able to complete (check the box) that task and it will just move on the next occurrence. For example, if you have a monthly recurring task every 30th of the month, you should have the following due dates:

- May 30
- June 30
- July 30

So if I complete May 30's occurrence, it will then move on to the next due date which is June 30.

Best Regards,

Clyde

Clyde,

This is not what I meant. How do I move due date for a May 30 task to one week ahead? I mean that I do not want to complete the May 30 task - I want to postpone it to one week without rescheduling other recurrences.

Instead of having May 30, Jun 30, Jul 30 I'd like to have Jun 6, Jun 30 and Jul 30.

I'm looking for a way not just postponing May 30 task till next occurrence and creating a clone for Jun 6.

Thank you.

Hi Alexander,

Sorry for the misunderstanding. The only way I can see doing this right now without using another task is to set it to "ev 30" and postpone the tasks to June 6, then June 30. The rest should follow the sequence correctly.

To postpone on a specific date, select the option after change date to "Next week". It's the 3 dots icon. https://www.dropbox.com/s/41tdojcq2bsdan9/Screenshot%202014-05-02%2017.48.30.png
