Completion of a task by a date

At the moment with Todoist you can specify that you have to carry out a task on a specific date.

I,e Friday of this week, or on the 12/11/2013

It would be nice to have a feature of being able to complete a task by a date.

As a user I need to discuss something with my boss. I want to define a date or a day when this has to be completed so that I have a reminder each day that I need to complete the task but I can complete it on any day up until that date.

Therefore if I could enter in.

Speak with Boss about XXXX by Friday

The task would appear each day on my task list on the run up to friday reminding me on a daily basis that I need to speak with him. I can complete this task at any time.

If I do not complete the task by the day or date specified it becomes overdue.

This functionality could be defined by the use of the phase 'by'. Any task defined as by date or by day would operate in this fashion.

Hi Andrew,

This can be accomplished a few ways.

1. You can set a task to be due Friday, then with the Reminder menu, set a reminder for each day up to that date.

2. You can set a task to be "everyday" and on the last day, use CTRL click to permanently complete it.

Thanks,
Brendon.
