Is it possible to go on a vacation without getting negative karma?

I've recently come back from a long vacation and noticed to my not positive surprise that my karma had been lowered by 10 a number of times because of inactivity.
I do not know if this is a new implementation or if it has been there all along, because it isn't listed in the list which tells you how to lose karma. I am wondering though if there is a way to let Todoist know you're going on a vacation, for when I'm going away for a long time any time in the future.

Thanks in advance,

"(...) because it isn't listed in the list which tells you how to lose karma (...)"

Ow, I just found myself looking at a new point in the list which tells me exactly that. So I guess it is a new thing after all, implemented within the last three weeks.
I am still wondering about my previously asked question though.

Hello Sam,

It was always like this, Karma gets lost when you have tasks that are overdue more than days, though that's intended - being on vacation does lower your productivity Karma and of course you shouldn't be productive on vacation ;-) But it's much easier to actually gain Karma than lose it so you'll get it back in no-time.

Alternatively, you could have rescheduled tasks before going on vacation so that nothing will be planned for this time and this way you could also plan ahead what to work on when you come back. We'll look into adding an option for this in the future.

Thank you for your quick answer.

Heh, exactly, vacation is a time of relaxing and non-productivity, at least for me :-).

Anyway, now that I know of it I can take it into account and I'll be looking forward to any added options in the future.

It would be great, for when we are going to be away for more than 7 days, to be able to look at tasks for the next 14 days.

Jade, you can already do this - create a filter using

overdue, 14 days

Name the filter whatever you like (mine is "Next 2 weeks")

Ah, thank you! I'm a novice :-)
