mine just skips to the next iteration which is rather unfortunate
@m o That's it. What worries me is that I won't catch it and miss a task.
@chris-hardee It appears that the skipped iteration shows up in the notifications list. Just thought I'd mention that in case it's useful in any way.
Does anyone a solution for this? I'm worried that I forget a task.
I have not heard it is fixed. It would be nice to get some feedback.
At the moment, repeating tasks are a single item, so when it hits the task due date it's moved to the next due date.
The only way, at the moment, to prevent this from happening would be to create a single task. I have filed an improvement request to have our Developers look into this, but at the moment, it's functioning as designed. I will keep you all updated should I hear of a fix being readied.
hello nick it's too bad that this behaviour is intentional because it defies all logic. your task management program is all about displaying tasks that are either coming, due, or past due. those are the only 3 states that tasks
can occupy. you guys have now broken your own usecases by creating a phantom state in repeating tasks that we will now call the "disappeared into thin air as if it never existed" state.
The current (repeat) functionality is designed to work like this:
- A task is created with a repeating due date of X.
- Date X is reached. (if not complete, next step)
- Task is past due for 24 hours. (if not complete, next step)
- Task moves on to next scheduled due date.
At the moment, our developers are looking at making changes, however, this is not planned in the current book of work. Will continue to update this should there be any additional information.
FYI Nick I have found an exception to your design. It turns out that I have a simple task that repeats on the 2nd of every month. It's something that hasn't
been tended to in 2 months and it's still stuck in August. Completed one iteration of it today, marked it and it went to September.
So your system is inconsistent but I would guess nobody knows why certain repeats behave as you describe, and others behave in the way I just experienced
and prefer Nick Church
This was just FYI you need not reply. And thanks for your overall communication habit.
Nick, I'm having the same problem for some time ..... and just now had the chance to look into it.
I understand you probably have more clients congratulating you on this function than complaining, am I correct?
Well, I can not imagine a good task manager that handles tasks on its own, without user interaction.
It is sad that other people may think different.
If I am wrong, please let me know when you may expect to fix this drastic "programmer mindset" (this is not a normal human thought and this hurts most users, from what I see).
You have done a great job overall. Thank you Nick!
This is ridiculous.
Any, and every schedule/task app makes it so the deadline is reached and it doesnt go onto the next iteration until it's done.
What are the developers waiting for???
Please hire a UX designer.
half of my tasks from a few months ago stay late until i have completed & only the newly ones made don't do that
The system is absolutely ridiculous. RIDICULOUS
I'm switching my task management app to something else.
