Date: "Every day this week"


I thought I found an undocumented feature in Todoist when I entered "ev day this week" in the date field of a task, and Todoist intelligently expanded it to "Every day this week". But when I marked the task as Done on the first day, it disappeared and didn't show up on the next day's agenda.

When I tried it again, I noticed that Todoist added a week to the date when the task was completed. It seems like Todoist interprets "Every day this week" to mean "every week on this day". It's a simple enough misunderstanding, and it's not a big deal, but the it was puzzling the first time it happened.

This is just an unexpected behavior report rather than a feature request or plea for help.

warm regards!

Hello John,

currently, you can use only date/time formats listed here:

All other undocumented dates will most likely not work correctly.

You may vote for implementing more advanced recurring dates here:

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it and will consider it in future development.
