Suppress only one occurence of a repeating task

OM

Sometimes you want to suppress one given occurence of a repeating task without suppressing all the occurences.

Hi Olivier,

Could you please elaborate as to what you mean by suppress?

If you check off (complete) a repeating task, it will move to the next available occurrence of that task. If that task is every Saturday, and you check it off, it goes to the next Saturday.

The same goes for if you use the Postpone option. Click on the "gear" icon beside the task, and choose "postpone", it will go to the next available occurrence of that task.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Hi Brendon,

I realize the initial description is not that clear.
The idea was to add the possibility to skip some occurrences of a repeating task.

"Postpone" does it but in fairness it should not affect your Karma! For example you have a weekly meeting and you decide to go 2 weeks on vacation (lucky you), why no better way than to postpone twice, or fake it as completed?

Hope this clarifies a bit,

regards,
Olivier

Hello Olivier,

Please note that there are much more ways to earn Karma than to lose it and occasional postponing of some tasks won't affect your Karma too much. In fact, you get a deduction only once for postponing while leaving these tasks overdue would deduct Karma permanently.

Alternatively, you could change the task's due date. For example, if the task is due "every Friday" and you'll be an vacation for 2 weeks, you can change its date to "ev Friday starting 24. May".


Best regards,
David
