Repetitive task ant them reminders


Hello. My problem is the next.

1. I create a repetitive task for every weekday.
2. I Create two reminders for it: for every weekday at 17:40 and for every wekday at 18:15.

And what happens next. Fro example today at 17:40 the first reminder appears. I mark my task "done" at the same time . But, at 18.15 the second reminder appears too with message (translate from russian) "The date of the task will come after 23 hours". So it means the task from the next day, tomorrow. And if I mark the task as "done" through this message, the task from tomorrow become "done" and desapear from the list for tomorrow until the next day. And tommrow it even won't remind me about this task (because it's already done).

How can I create repetitive task with a few reminders for it?

Sorry, I mean it needs to stop show the second reminder for today task if the task is marked as "done".

Hello Valik,

I assume that you're using absolute reminders in which you enter the exact date and time of the reminder.

If that's correct, then these reminders will indeed be sent independently of the task's date or status as they're "absolute". Instead, you could try to use relative reminders. These require the task to have a time such as "every weekday at 18:15" and then you can add:
- one relative reminder set to "30 minutes before deadline"
- one relative reminder set to "0 minutes before deadline".

Best regards,

Hello, David.
Yes, I use the absolute reminder.
I try to use several relative reminders - 30 and 0 minutes before deadline. Let's see how it'll work.

Thanks for help, David.
