Overdue daily tasks and stacking

I have a daily task set up to take my vitamins at night(not really, just an example). If I forget to check off the task it will switch to overdue. If I forget to check the task as done that night, the following morning I will check off the task as done. It will then give me the next due date as tomorrow instead of today.

Is there any way to have it remind me to do the task today as well instead of going to tomorrow if I let a daily task go to an overdue status. I want to show the overdue task from yesterday(if I forget), and also show the task for today. Is this doable?

Hello Geoff,

Unfortunately, that's not possible. The completion of any recurring task, moves the date to the next available occurrence after today. In case of a daily task, that's tomorrow. This way, you wouldn't have to click through any overdue task multiple times to catch up to it.

In cases like this, where a missed task should require catching up and another completion after that, there's unfortunately no workaround for it, unless making sure not to miss it for a day ;-)

In my opinion, it would be beneficial to have the behavior specified by Geoff. I can understand that you wouldn't want tasks to stack up for days, but at minimum, if you check off a repeating item from the previous day, the current day's item should remain.
