How are "Tomorrow" and "Postpone to Tomorrow" different?

How are "Tomorrow" and "Postpone to Tomorrow" different?
I see these two options in the Android app too.

Hello W,

If the task you're referring to has a due date "every day" then there's indeed no different, but if the date is, for example, "every 14 days" and then the postpone option will show you "postpone to 18 Feb" (assuming you use it today on February 4th). That is - it will postpone to the next occurrence of the task based on its date.

The "tomorrow" option, on the other hand, will only schedule this one occurrence exactly to tomorrow regardless of the task's date and recurrence pattern so even the "every 14 days" task can be rescheduled to tomorrow without breaking its original pattern.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

Your explanation makes good sense.
However, even for non-recurring tasks, both "tomorrow" and "postpone to tomorrow" appear.
It's okay. I don't consider it a bug. Just curious what it was.

W,

You are correct, this happens in the more full view, when you click on the 3 dots (more). I will let the devs know about it, but it's most likely in place for when dates as mentioned above are happening, and indeed is not a bug.

Thanks,
Brendon.

It would be nice to be able to postpone a recurring task to tomorrow, even if it recurs every other day or less frequently (that is, if you still intend to do it, not skip to the next occurrence, and without breaking the recurrence pattern).

Is that possible?

Max,

If you are referring to how a task completed overdue moves to the next occurrence, this can not be changed right now. We will look into improving this in the future.

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi!

How detailed is productivity trend?

Is there anyways, I can look at it in details where I can see how many and which tasks I have completed on certain days and so on?

Hello Mafuzur,

Please click on the Karma score in the top-right corner and already there you'll see your productivity trends for the week and the past weeks with the number of tasks you've completed and the colors of the project in which they were completed.

If you then go to "View All Completed", you'll see a detailed list of all completed tasks and you can then go to "Visualize" to see even more statistics :-)


Regards,
David

Thanks David.

In the "View All Completed", does the tasks that are postponed still appear there?

I have some tasks which occur on a daily basis, and I sometime postponed these daily recurring tasks, so will the postponed tasks still be shown when I go to "view all completed" tasks?

Mafuzur,

No, postponing a task doesn't include it in the completed task list. Only task that are marked as completed are included in these statistics.

David

Is it possible to postpone a task for shorter period of time? I'm a recent convert from any.do and I find myself missing the "remind me in an hour" style buttons...

Jon,

Right click, and those options, click the 3 dots for more, you can pick an exact date. Though if you mean within the same day, no you would need to edit the tasks due date.

Brendon

Hey Brendon, I meant postponing a recurring task within the same day. Would be a nice feature...

Jon, couldn't you just set a reminder for an hour from "now"? Or set the time the task is due for an hour from "now"?

Hey Haskenazi.. That's what I've been doing. I'm looking for a more streamlined experience, one more similar to other to-do list software packages.

Yeah, the "remind me in an hour" option would be very very useful
