New Planning Mode (iPhone)


The new planning mode is great! But: Seems to be no difference between "tomorrow" and "postpone" which sets a due date to tomorrow as well... or do I miss something?
If I am right one of the spaces could be used for another option.

Hello Lars,

There's actually a significant difference between postpone and tomorrow, but it only affects tasks that have any other recurring date than "every day".

In case of "every day" it's indeed the same, however if you have a task due "every Thursday", then choosing "postpone" will discard the upcoming occurrence and move the task to the next one, that is - to the next Thursday.

However, using "tomorrow" will set only the next single occurrence to tomorrow without breaking the recurrence pattern so you can quickly reschedule such tasks once and still keep them recurring. In the past, this would require changing the task's due date (hence - breaking the pattern).

Best regards,
