Set BOTH a defer date and a due date, from date of completion

I would be really happy if I could figure out how to do this, but it seems like I may be requesting a new feature.

Let’s say there’s a task that would ideally be done every 7 days, regardless of the day of the week, and there isn’t a set due date. I don’t want to do it more than every 4 days, but I also would say I must have it done by the 10th day. I flag this task so that when it does become available, I see it in various “hot lists” made of flagged actions, and hopefully tackle it when I get chance before my own self-imposed “due date.”

So, ideally, I would be able to set a defer again date of 4 days with a corresponding due date of 10 days. Repeat every won’t work, because that makes no regard to the date of the completion of the task. And other than that, I have to either choose to set a defer date or a due date - not both.

Anybody have a solution for this?

So I’ve figured out that OF actually does do this - what I want it to do. The dates just don’t show up until I complete the task. Yay!

I would delete this post but as far as I can tell I can’t.


Better to keep this post up so others can learn from you! Thanks for the post!
