Option to remove overdue recurring tasks automatically

Hi Todoist team,

First of all, thanks a lot for your awesome app! I tried nearly every single productivity app out there and Todoist is my absolute favorite so far.
There is also another app that I'm using specifically for developing habits and other recurring tasks - GoalTracker for Android.That said, I'd really love to have all my tasks (both one-time and recurring) in one place. Could you please add an option to remove overdue recurring tasks automatically. Otherwise, if I didn't, say, play a guitar a couple of days, all missed days would show as overdue until complete or delete by hand. Simple math: 50 recurring tasks multiply by just a couple of days = I have hundreds of tasks hanging in my app...

Hi Aygul,

A recurring overdue task will show as one task on your Today list, not as multiple tasks. Once you check this task off, it will move to the next occurrence.

Please clarify if you are just wanting to have overdue tasks get removed if not done? If that is the case, then this will probably not be changed, as part of a To-Do list is to get things done, not the opposite.

Thanks,
Brendon.
