If i want to add a task which will start from let say 4 july and end on 6 july..How can i acheive it.
You can use "every day start july 4". However, it's not possible to put end dates yet so you'll have to move the task to history on July 6.
It would be good to have this option.
Yes I agree with Marco, it's becoming clearly evident that an end date for recurring events or tasks is sorely missing from Todoist. Especially for daily recurring. I have to enter "every day" until the end then I change that to "today", this is the only way to create a paper trail of completed events or tasks. I don't think that IFTTT can fix that, can it?
Most other programs (including Outlook) allow some very fine adjustments to recurring tasks and recurring appointments. Making this feature more granular will definitely improve Todoist.
What do we, the users, need to do so that this feature will be available soon?
We're looking into improving our date parser and this might be one of the syntax that we'll add. :-)
Does that smiley face icon seems to indicate that you are blowing smoke up our ***.
It's time to reveal a roadmap and let your users vote on what they want next (remember vote box).
Thanks Clyde for your response but as a new user not having an end date makes the Calendar seem incomplete. I'm very interested in seeing this happen soon.
