In Asana, I am finding myself using the periodic recurring pattern (e.g. 7 days after completion) way more often than the weekly reminder (e.g. every Wednesday).
For example, let’s say I want to create one piece of content every week. I used to have a recurring task every Monday. But then if I missed the Monday and did it on Friday, the next task would be on Monday, one business day later. And if I missed 2 Mondays, the next task would be on the second Monday I missed, being overdue as soon as it was created.
However, by using the period « 7 days after completion » I am able to create a piece of content every 7 days. If I miss the deadline by a few days, then the schedule just shifts but keeps 7 days apart.
I find it to be less overwhelming and more coherent in cases where the task is not critical, obviously.
Anyone feels the same?
