I have been using OF for couple of years, but till today I can’t seem to find the good solution to this. I hope someone can shed some light for me.
Say I have an action that is due on every end of the month, eg “Pay bill”. So I set the due date to be last day of the month. Then I set it to repeat “Every month”.
I don’t want to be bothered by the action until 1 week before, so I set the defer until 1 week before end of the month.
Since I have repeat in place, the “defer until” is also set for next month. So far so good.
Now here comes the problem: Say today is the 1 week before due date, the action item becomes available. But I’m not able to pay it today as I’m travelling, so I change the “defer until” to few days later. Problem is, the same is also reflected in next month’s repeat setting. Which means to say, if I happen to forget about it, when next month comes, the action will not be made available 1 week before, instead, it follows previous month’s setting.
I hope I’m making sense, and if you see what I mean, please tell me what would have been a better way to deal with such situation?
