Start Dates and Recurring
If you have Start Dates set with recurring tasks, your Start Dates will be automatically moved to ensure they are the same distance from the Due Dates.
- Your task starts on Monday and is due on Wednesday (2 days in between)
- Recurrence is set to every day
- On the next recurrence, your due date is moved up one day, to Thursday.
- Your start date would also be moved up one day, to ensure it's still 2 days before your Due Date, so the Start Date would be Tuesday now.
