Apologies if the answer to this is out there. I read around pretty extensively and thought I found the solution, but it is not working.
The situation and need:
I have a fixed number of evaluations that must be completed in a given month. To ensure I meet my quota, I need to do at least two per workday. I am looking to set up recurring tasks for this purpose. These tasks need to pile up if they are not completed. For example, if I do not complete today’s evaluations, I need to have two past due tasks AND the two additional tasks waiting for me when I open OF tomorrow morning. If I slack off again, the third day would then have six total tasks: four past due, two due end of that day. And so on…
I tried to…
- create 2 tasks titled “Eval” within a single-item project (project itself contains other items that need completed on a daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis)
- defer: today 6am
- due date: today 2pm
- repeat: every 1 week, MTWRF
- repeat from: Assigned Dates
What happens: Only the tasks that remained incomplete from the previous day are present when opening OF in the morning. No additional tasks present. The new tasks seem to generate only when I mark the existing tasks as complete.
What am I doing wrong? Or am I looking for something that is not possible?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can or tries to help!
