Date Time Insertion for next 3 days

How would I insert a recurrence for the next 3 days?

eg. Today, tomorrow & the day after

Or can I set 3 different dates with no pattern between then as follows:

2/7, 2/9, 2/14

Unfortunately, that's not possible. You could set the due date to "every day" and each day you complete this task, its date will change to the next day, but it will not stop after 3 days. You will need to delete the task after you complete it for the third time.

You could also try to break this task into 3 sub-tasks, schedule each sub-task for the particular date and complete the parent task after all 3 sub-tasks have been completed.

Thank you David. I will try the work-around with setting up a recurring daily task and then kill it after 3 days. That's an easier no-frills approach than creating 3 sub-tasks :)
