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.
