    Yes please. Confusingly this is one of the two major reasons I stick with Todoist.

    This is the behavior I find most counter-intuitive. Randy's phrasing of "AND--re-set a recurring event date based on completion, e.g. two weeks from completion." is exactly what I was trying to describe.

    If I have a weekly or daily recurring task, and I'm late, it doesn't make sense to have to tap on complete over and over again to get it current.

    For example, let's say you have a daily task like washing the dishes, but you fall a couple days behind. When you finally get them done, the task is finished. So having to mark the task complete over and over isn't intuitive.

    Great app, and it seems like a small thing, but this behavior is why I went back to Todoist, even though there's a lot to like about Wunderlist.

    I agree. The current behavior makes no sense. If I have a daily task to wash the dishes, and I miss three days, what's the point of having the due date pop up over and over until it gets to the current day?

    I'm struggling to think of the use case where if you missed a date on a recurring task, having it still tell you something in the past needs to be done is useful.

    Can you take out the trash 7 times in a row? Cut the grass? Make a dentist appointment? It makes no sense.

    Yes! This is so much better, because in real life that's how some events and deadlines work. For example, let's say your city has e-waste or "bulk" garbage pickup on the second Saturday of each month. 30 days just won't cut it.
