Relative reminder dates

How do I set a reminder that is relative to the date the task is due, and not to an absolute date. For instance, i have a task due April 10th and I want to know about it 2 days prior as a reminder. I can set the reminder for April 8. But if I move the due date for the task the reminder date doesn't move relative to it. :/

So how do I tell the system "Set the reminder X far ahead of the due date"?

Hi Tyler,

Reminders are, for lack of a better explanation, not dependant of the due date. So if you add a reminder for the 8th, it will stay the 8th. We will consider adding more smart reminders in the future.

Of course if you add a due date (date box) for April 10 @ 2pm it will add a reminder 30 minutes before that time.
