Location-based reminders for recurring tasks - not how I expected

LC

If you set a location-based reminder for a task that is recurring e.g. every Monday, after you complete it on Monday it still keeps popping up for the whole week every time you visit the location.
It's annoying, it shouldn't work like that. :-/

It should trigger the location-based reminder on Mondays only.

Hi Lukasz,

We will consider changing this in future updates.

From the user perspective this is very serious usability flaw. I have few solutions:
- give an option and/or use it by default to not use location reminders for recuring tasks before next event
- or give some advanced configuration with time threshold
- use combined time/location reminders (eg 1 day before/0 day before AND on chosen location)

any of these are not difficult to be implemented. and this is really a blocker for havy (premium) users.
