Run up to deadline
I suspect this is a feature request rather than a support query, but you never know!
I frequently have tasks that are going to take me several days to complete and have a deadline. At the moment, I would have to schedule such a task for the day when I wanted to start it and then keep postponing it daily until it was finished. Whilst this works, it doesn't feel very good (and it probably damages my Karma!).
I would like to be able to schedule a task that has a deadline and a start date so that I remember to do it before the deadline but don't feel like I'm failing because I have to postpone it every day!
