Repeated tasks bug


I noticed a bug with repeated tasks. If a task is set for every day and you complete the task a day late it skips the current day.

ie. I have a task to read every day. I did not complete it yesterday. I completed it (yesterday's task) today. In this case, it (the regularly scheduled reading task for today) should still appear for me to complete today as well. Instead the current day is skipped and it appears again the following day.

Hello Steve,

This is the correct behavior. If you miss a task, please complete it also for today as a completion of any task moves it to the next available instance, in this case - tomorrow.

This way, you don't have to complete tasks multiple times to "catch up". In a lot of cases that's even not possible if the task is "call someone" or "take out the trash". In other cases, please complete it for today before checking it off.

Best regards,
