More human dates



In English "the day after tomorrow" is a very long phrase, but not in other languages, for example the equivalent of "the day after tomorrow" in Chinese is "后天", the length is the same as "today"("今天").

If it's hard to collect different habits of describing dates in different languages, can you just provide a way to define some on our own?

Hello Tevin,

Thank you for contacting us. You're welcome to add your suggestion as a feature request to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/

We will consider implementing more easy date formats in the future, but for now, you can use the + sign and a number to set a task to a day relatively in the future. So, for example, to set a task to "tomorrow", you can set the date to +1 that is - 1 day from now and to set it "the day after tomorrow", you can type +2, that is - 2 days from now. There's no limit is now much "days from now" you can use, so you can input dates such as +30 or +365.

Best regards,

Hello David,

Sorry for the wrong place to post this, "+2" is a convenient alternative, I just want you know this, if more human dates are in your schedule.
