How to create a task whose due date is 2 days after the previous job?


I created a "Pay phone bill" task whose due date put "tomorrow". After I created to send proof of payment via email task, and I want the due date is one day after the first task task. How do?

Hello Geraldo,

To set up recurring dates, you can use the "after" or "every" prefix.

So, for example, if you set a task with a due date "every 2 days", then when you check it off it will be rescheduled 2 days into the future based on its formula.

If you set a task with a due date of "after 2 days", then checking it off will reschedule it 2 days after the day you complete it.

So the only difference will be if you have this task overdue by one day. The "every" option will then move it to "tomorrow" (2 days after the original due date) while the "after" option will move it to the day after tomorrow (2 days after the completion date).

Best regards,

If you always pay the phone bill on the same schedule, just create two recurring tasks, one with a due date 2 days after the other.

But there is no automatic way to link task due dates as you requested. You can vote for it on the Votebox.
