Recurring tasks are not automatically going to the "Later" Section


Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
Recurring Tasks in Later Hack does not appear to be working. Recurring tasks will default to Later with this hack turned off.

It’s my understanding that with this hack turned off, recurring tasks will ALWAYS reappear in the upcoming section (regardless of due date). Reference link for additional information.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Ensure hack is turned off.
  2. Complete a recurring task.
  3. Review to determine where the recurring task landed. Most likely will be in the later section.

Thank you so much for the comprehensive report @Pachia_Moua, really appreciate it!

Just had a chat with our Engineers, and here is how you should be able to fix the issue:

  • Access your task (currently located in the Later section
  • Stop the repetition (open the due date and set it to “Never” repeat
  • Move your task to the Upcoming section
  • Set your repetition again.

Once you complete this task, the following task should automatically land into the Upcoming Section.

This isn’t a bug but has to do with the way recurring tasks were built. Essentially if the tasks was in the Later section when you set the repetition, it will remember it and nest all newly created tasks in the Later Section.

Hope this helps @Pachia_Moua; let me know if this solution works on your end! :slight_smile:
