Allow to change a date of a recurring task without effecting the series


Let's say we have a recurring tasks for every Monday. If I click "postpone" on Monday, the task will *not* be postponed to tomorrow (like a normal tasks would be), but it will be marked completed. The tasks only reappears next Monday.

This is a really counter-intuitive behaviour. The command for this should be called "skip" and not "postpone".

Please change the postpone functionality for recurring tasks so that it behaves in the same way as for normal tasks, i.e., moving the instance to tomorrow.

In general, it should be possible to change the date of individual instances of recurring tasks without affecting the whole series.

I have many recurring tasks. From my point of view the current behaviour is a major issue and it should be addressed.

I think that the issue with recurring tasks should be fixed soon. For me, it is much more important than getting, e.g., a calendar module.

It should also not be very difficult to implement this:

If a user changes the date of recurring tasks instance, the instance is deleted (not the whole series) and a single tasks is automatically created with the specified date.

Hello Volker,

Thank you for your suggestion. Right now, it's already partially possible. If you right-click on a recurring task and select "Do it today", its date will be set to "today", but only for this one occurrence. We're currently adding more such options incl. "Do it tomorrow".

Best regards,
