Reply One Problem with Things 3»

Stephen Hackett at 512 Pixels:

I was baffled by the app’s UI for creating repeating tasks. After some time, I’ve come to see what the app is doing. There is, however, one problem I can’t overcome. You can’t check off a repeating task early. Let’s say I have a task on the 8th of every month named “Update Monthly Income Spreadsheet.” Every other task manager on the planet would let me mark this task as complete if I do it on the 7th. Except Things 3.

I’ve been using Things 3 since soon after it was released (I previously used 2Do). Repeating tasks weren’t in at launch and I got used to living without them. I never noticed that you can’t clear repeating todo’s ahead of the due date set. Thanks for pointing this out @ismh.
