Changing the due date on a Todoist reoccurring task without breaking the reoccurrence
Please note that in Todoist there are two recurring dates: every and every!. They are similar and the difference is how the next date is computed. For example:
- Clean fridge with due date every 3 months starting 10 April
- Clean fridge with due date every! 3 months starting 10 April
Completing every 3 months starting 10 April will result in a due date 3 months from 10. April.
Completing every! 3 months starting 10 April will result in a due date 3 months from the completion date.
Changing the due date on a todoist reoccurring task without breaking the reoccurrence:
Note little spinner for reoccurring
If a reoccurring task is due, and you want to change the due date on this instance without breaking the reoccurrence, Click on the three dots “…” And schedule
And then choose a shortcut date or use the date picker, for example, Postpone to tomorrow
Moves the due date it but doesn’t break reoccurrence
Or you can pick a date:
Reoccurrence still stays:
However if you edit the date by clicking in the date text field:
Now you are changing the “master date”/breaking the reoccurrence
For example using date picker:
Note reoccurrence gone
So if you don’t want to break the reoccurrence, only use the … date picker, not the text field.
