Missed recurring tasks

I have a weekly recurring task. I missed last week's task, but I did finally get around to it and mark it as complete. When I did so, it automatically created a task for the following week, instead of the current week.

The scenario: Today is 11 March 2014, the following task is set up for every Monday at 06:00

Do this (due 3 March 2014)

I see the task as being over due. I mark it as complete. I would think that a new task for 10 March 2014 would be created. But instead I see a task created for 17 March 2014.

That is the correct behavior. If you've missed a task for multiple instances then when you catch up to it, it will be rescheduled for the next available occurrence. March 10th is no longer an available occurrence as this date has passed already.

That said, if you've missed a task and it's one that will actually require completing it multiple times, please finish all its instances before you check it off.

Best regards,
