Subtask due dates in relation to repeating task

I have a repeating task with subtasks. All the subtasks have the same relationship to the task, date wise) – i.e. the whole task is due on a Monday, step one is due the previous Wed, step 2 the previous Friday, etc.

But when the task repeats with a new due date, the dates of the subtasks don’t update–they all show from the first time I entered them.

Is there a way to make the subtasks advance by the same amount as their parent task when repeating?

I think you’d need to set the subtasks to repeat as well.

I thought I saw that you’re not supposed to set repeating subtasks on repeating tasks because you get infinite loops.

Ah yes, I see what you mean now. To be honest, I can’t think of a workaround here… If it were me, I’d set the parent task to repeat and each week you’ll likely have to manually set the due dates for the subtasks.

Two years later and I still desperately want this feature!!!
