Do it Tomorrow Button

PL

Love the "Do it Today" button, however many people (like myself) like to plan out tomorrow's to do list today.

Going through tasks, editing them, entering "tom" and saving them is too laborious. So a button that adds it to my list on the NEXT WORKING DAY (that's important) would be terrific!

Please?

so, just press postpone instead of do it today - it moves the task to the next suitable date: tomorow or next reoccuring date

Yup, realised that just after I made this post.

Doh. Still, the next working day would be nice, but I guess you can just press postpone 3 times to achieve the same effect.

I'd love to have a Do it Tomorrow button that ignores recurrence, though. As it is, if there's a thing I do every 3 days and would rather do it tomorrow than today, Postpone moves it to three days from now.

Yes, that's very true - that functionality annoys me as well. I reinstate my original suggestion on that point!

I'm a new premium user and impressed with most functionality, but this is one that I find frustrating. I have a monthly recurring task that I don't get to today. I'll like to push it to my calendar for tomorrow, but keep the monthly recurrence. Pressing postpone makes it go away until next month which is no good. The "do it tomorrow" option might work, but I also need the task to remain on my monthly recurrence. Sorry to draw an Outlook comparison, but this is the one area their task tool Excels - it kind of creates and 'instance' of a task, vs a 'recurring' task. You can change the date of an instance without impacting the recurring. For monthly, annual, or other type of tasks with large time gaps in between, this is critical. If I simply changed the due date to tomorrow, I think ToDoist then wipes out the recurrance which is no good. Please help with this functionality.

Hello Joseph,

There is no need to reschedule the task to tomorrow. If you don't complete it, you can leave it overdue and the default today or 7 days views on Todoist also include overdue task so you won't miss it and when you complete it on the next day then it will go to the next occurrence.

This way you will also know that this is a task that you've missed and not something due today. Please check these great 3 tips on how this can even increase your productivity: https://todoist.com/blog/2013/06/3-ways-to-drastically-improve-your-productivity/


Best regards,
David

I raised a similar issue last week about where if you click "Do it today" on an overdue (or future) recurring task it marks it as complete and disappears until the next occurrence - I was told it as a bug which would be fixed imminently.

I share Joseph's pain here as it's virtually the same problem, and the ability to have the task temporarily move to today, tomorrow, etc, but still retain it's regular re-occurrence would be very handy.

You can of course, leave it as an overdue task - but that kind of defeats the idea of a "clear" environment. You don't want tasks you've planned to do tomorrow hanging around as an overdue item!

I agree with Andy, I'd like the task to keep the same recurring schedule, but just bump the current recurrence one more day. For example:

Let's say I have something I want to do every Monday, it should never change from Monday. But one Monday is too busy and I just want to push it out to tomorrow. Right now if I do Postpone, it bumps to the next Monday, which is totally not what is intended. That's pretty much equivalent to saying I completed the task this week (which I didn't). For this reason, I don't think Postpone is even an appropriate word for this action.

The other problem is if I change the data to tomorrow, then it screws up the entire schedule changing it to Tuesday forever. That's also not what's intended.

So +1 on having a "do it tomorrow" button. Or change "postpone" to work like a do it tomorrow button, but "do it tomorrow" is more clear regardless.

I don't understand the idea of why having a task that I want to do tomorrow is better to have as an overdue task. To me, those are incredibly different things. A task I need to do tomorrow is exactly that. An overdue task is something that I'm probably going to get a swift kick in the pants for not having done.
