Recurring Task (Overdue)
Every so often I mistakenly leave a recurring task unfinished on a given day - I am reffering specifically to a recurring task for ongoing projects that I want on my list every day until completed. When I look at my list the next day & it appears in the Overdue category, I simply check it off. I instinct initially was that it would simply belatedly move it onto today's list. Instead, it skips the current day and repositions the task to the following day, i.e., tomorrow. I don't see the logic in this, and don't really want a complicated workaround. It's not tragic, but I just dislike it and am curious to know if this outcome should be the expected one. Maybe there is logic there somewhere that I just cannot see. Thanks very much!

This is indeed an expected behavior. The reason behind it is to avoid multiple checking off tasks hat are long overdue. If you have an overdue task that you're going to complete today, check it off and it's done for today and therefore it's being moved to tomorrow.
