Autocompletion with SubTasks not working properly

Hi Folks,

I have the following task with subtasks, that repeat each week, defer date on Fridays, due date on Mondays:

- Timesheets freigeben @parallel(true) @autodone(true) @context(Ideen : Repeating) @tags(Ideen : Repeating) @due(2020-10-12 09:00) @defer(2020-10-09 10:00) @repeat-method(fixed) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- A @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Ideen : Repeating) @tags(Ideen : Repeating, Work : HR, Work : People : Adrian Haaga) @due(2020-10-19 09:00) @defer(2020-10-16 10:00) @repeat-method(fixed) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- A @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Work : HR) @tags(Work : HR, Ideen : Repeating) @due(2020-10-19 09:00) @defer(2020-10-16 10:00) @repeat-method(due-after-completion) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- G @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Work : HR) @tags(Work : HR, Ideen : Repeating) @due(2020-10-19 09:00) @defer(2020-10-16 10:00) @repeat-method(due-after-completion) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- O @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Ideen : Repeating) @tags(Ideen : Repeating, Work : HR, Work : People : Olivier Hubert) @due(2020-10-19 17:00) @defer(2020-10-16 00:00) @repeat-method(due-after-completion) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- R @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Work : HR) @tags(Work : HR, Ideen : Repeating) @due(2020-10-19 09:00) @defer(2020-10-16 10:00) @repeat-method(due-after-completion) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- Sa @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Work : HR) @tags(Work : HR, Ideen : Repeating) @due(2020-10-19 09:00) @defer(2020-10-16 10:00) @repeat-method(due-after-completion) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- S @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Work : HR) @tags(Work : HR, Ideen : Repeating) @due(2020-10-19 09:00) @defer(2020-10-16 10:00) @repeat-method(due-after-completion) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- T @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Ideen : Repeating) @tags(Ideen : Repeating, Work : HR) @due(2020-10-16 17:00) @defer(2020-10-13 00:00) @repeat-method(fixed) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)
	- Y @parallel(true) @autodone(false) @context(Work : HR) @tags(Work : HR, Ideen : Repeating) @due(2020-10-19 09:00) @defer(2020-10-16 10:00) @repeat-method(due-after-completion) @repeat-rule(FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=MO)

This is how I would want it to work:
I complete the sub tasks between Friday and Monday and then the main task completes automatically.

This is what happens:
I complete each sub task, then the main task does not compete. When I complete the main task manually I get all the sub tasks added for the next week as well, so they are doubled in my task list.

If you have ideas, everything helps, thank you.

I have something similar, but only let the main task repeat. Once everything is complete it just resets to the next due date. Things get too fiddly if I do it otherwise

Agreed. @ludwigederle, what you have setup won’t work because all of the sub tasks are never complete, each time you complete one, it’s recreated and available. The main action will only auto complete when there are no Uncompleted available sub tasks.

You shouldn’t mix repeating projects and actions, it won’t work. It’s one or the other.
