Defer & Due dates relative to a repeating date?

I appreciate the new flexibility of the repeating tasks, they are great!

However I’ve a situation I haven’t figured out how to handle:

Use case:
I have a meeting on the first Tuesday of every month.
I need to send out an agenda to attendees 2 days ahead of the meeting.
I want to create a repeating task “Create Meeting Agenda” that has a defer date of 1 week before the meeting and a due date of 2 days before the meeting.

I haven’t figure out how to do that, even with the new flexibility of OF3.

Is there a way to do this or do I need to submit a feature request?


I use Taskpaper functionality outside OF for this.

  • Monthly HOA Meeting for «MONTH» @parallel(false) @autodone(true)
    • Prepare Deck @parallel(true) @autodone(true) @defer(«DATE»-1w) @due(«DATE»-3d)

Hope this helps!
