What is the difference between "Tomorrow" and "Postpone to Tomorrow"?


Question for all platforms

When a task is over due, I often want to move it to tomorrow and 2 apparently equal options are given.

is there any difference? if not,why are both "Tomorrow" and "Postphone to Tomorrow" given?

They appear to have identical behavior.

Thank you

Hello Stephen,

The "Tomorrow" option is a scheduling option - with it, you can move a task to the specific day without breaking its recurrence pattern.

The "Postpone to..." option is the standard postponing feature which will move the task's date to the next occurrence based on its pattern.

The difference is clear if the task has any other date than "every day" because if it's "every day", then its next occurrence is Tomorrow. Also, I've mentioned "Postpone to..." because this option is not fixed just to tomorrow so if the task's date would be "every Friday", then you would see these options:
- Tomorrow
- Postpone to Friday

This makes it clearer - Tomorrow allows you to reschedule the task one-time to tomorrow without breaking the "Every Friday" pattern and the postpone feature skips it to the next occurrence, in this case Friday.

Is there any difference for tasks without recurrence?

Hi Brian,

No, there isn't.
