Issue with creating recurring tasks that are created after # days


I have created a task with the recurring time of "ev 3 days after completion". Which I would think would be 3 days after completion but if it is finished a day late for example, it is created as a new task two days from completion instead of 3 days.

Hello Wayne,

unfortunately, this is not a supported date format. Please use only formats mentioned on this list:

If you set a task to "ev 3 days", it will always be postponed to the next occurrence adding +3 days on each click regardless of the current date so if it's overdue by 8 days, the first completion will make it overdue by 5 days, the next overdue by 2 days and then due tomorrow.

Still, we will consider adding more recurring date formats in future development so you're welcome to vote for these requests in our Votebox:
