Ability to skip recurring task instead of Complete

Same! This feature would be amazing! Would really love to be able to do this.

Why is Team Asana not adding a skip task button for the recurring task? Everyone needed it.

If the Team Asana does not add the skip recurring task feature soon, then if any of the competitors come up with the same, then most people will switch from asana to a new app for this.

Just for this feature? I doubt it :slight_smile:

Yes please add a Not Complete option for tasks! Adding skip is helpful but I need to see if someone didn’t complete a task.

Would be great to have this not complete function… but then also to be able to build into the workflow if by the end of the week it is due it haunt been completed it can be automatically set as “not complete” and then the recurring task generates the one for next week… this would help manage those tasks when people are on holiday… potentially.

I second this idea! :100:

I have a “Family Responsibilities” project with my spouse and older kids to keep track of daily/weekly/monthly chores. If someone didn’t do the dishes yesterday, that’s just more dishes for today’s task, but it doesn’t become two tasks. It would be more useful for me to see how often chores are actually getting completed.

Perhaps there could be an optional check box when creating the task. This way, the default can continue to show as overdue, but if you select “Close as Not Completed after Due Date”, it will automatically count the task as Not Completed.

I still also like the idea of a “Skip” option to proactively skip a task before it’s due, especially if that also counts the task as Not Completed.

Bump this idea.

Has there been any update here? Apart from the unpopular workarounds suggested?

I’d be happy with just a Skipped, if Not Complete (and the accompanying reporting underneath this) is too difficult. I just find frustratingly difficult to actually click ‘Complete’ when I know IT WASN’T COMPLETED, and I’m just clicking this to create the next, recurred task. Sorry, I find the psychology behind clicking Complete when not complete very jarring.

PS:

The workaround suggested of moving Tasks forward is much more time consuming and requires much more steps to complete, as opposed to just clicking a single button & having the recurrence fire again.

Think: Moving 15 Tasks via shifting each in the Calendar vs 15 Clicks to just ‘skip’ or ‘Not completed’

I completely agree about needing “Skip” or something like it. This isn’t so much a nice to have, but there are various scenarios that our implementation really needs the ability to be able to mark our tasks as something different than completed vs. not completed.
