Marking repeating tasks as "done" once due

I am a bit confused as to how to use repeating tasks. Say I have a “take out trash to the curb” that repeats once a week on Wednesday. Wednesday comes, and the task shows in my due list for today. Good. Now, once I’ve taken the trash to the curb, what I am supposed to do so the task doesn’t show in due list anymore?

If I delete it, as I do for most of the tasks I create, I imagine that the task won’t repeat. Should I mark the task done, and it will automatically “undo” itself next week when Wednesday comes?


Hello Alex,

You should mark the task “Done” and it will be re-opened with the next Wednesday due either withing an hour, or later, if you use “Generate X days before the next due date” option. You can use “hide completed” option if you don’t see the completed tasks in the list.

Hope this helps,

Perfect, this clarifies it!

Would be great if you could press “nd” (next due?) and that would set the date to the next time it’s due, without making the task disappear. I can then “rf” to make it disappear (assuming I’m searching for ^now for example).
