How to mark a task incomplete?
I missed a task and the app is automatically putting it in overdue list. But the nature of the task is that it can be either complete or incomplete. Looks like there is no way i can mark a task as incomplete or suggest how to do that please.
This case gets worsen when the task in repeat mode. Only when the overdue task is marked as complete, the task for the next iteration gets created. This make my tracking gets stuck as i just missed one iteration.
I dont want to move task from one day to other as a workaround for this.
Sorry, to support incompleted tasks is not in our plan.
Ok. How to handle the repeat mode case? Any suggestion other than moving the task to a different time?
Swipe left on a recurring task - Quick date menu - Select "Skip to" to skip the current recurrence or select/long press "Postpone" to reschedule a due date for it.
Looks like you didn’t see my ask ;)
Cant skip a task... So Tick Tick isn't going to let us deal with failure in a healthy manner? Which is to accept and acknowledge over tasking yourself, and try to do better next time? I use this app to put in thing like weekly chores. Sometimes I just don't have enough time to get around to all of the recurring tasks I set. It is unbelievably fricken annoying to not have a skip for those instances. Especially since half the time I delete every occurrence of the task just trying to get all of the past due crap to go away so my inbox is neat. I am extremely not in support for your "we don't support unfinished tasks" method. Alot of people who use apps like this already have to much on their plate and don't need to be beat over the head by a growing backlog. It just adds stress and makes me quit using the app all together because it becomes an unattainable goal. On top of that, I don't see how statistics work when you can't tell the app what you missed. I want my back log to be clean with only the tasks that I actually plan to go back to, but when I delete tasks that I know I won't have time for it skews the statistics. All of this has me strongly considering trying todoist instead. I don't like being forced to use that app the way the dev wants to use it, or in the way they think is most helpful, I want OPTIONS! If that means the ability to skip tasks then let it be so. It should be the accuracy of the statistics that drive me forward. Currently disappointed that I paid for this...
@Chelle D fully agree. I have this app for the fantasic checkbox widget, currently occupying my entire first screen, and much of the real estate of my day. However this decision is nothing but dev laziness. I have no interest in having to go to into the app every time I miss an iteration of a habit, as I entirely expect to do -- that's how I got to 20 or more significant habits a day. Whereas marking tasks as complete just to get current in the list is lying to yourself, the one person who needs to know the truth at all times. Would really appreciate another look at this or unless I can think of another workaround, this app quickly becomes useless to me. Thanks
I am currently defaulting to using this app for only my one time tasks, and grocery shopping lists. I have found way more success with apps like habit hub, or "New Habit" which is what I'm currently using because habit hub doesn't work on the current version of phone I'm on. I highly recommend trying either of those. They have mark complete, Mark incomplete, and statistics that you can view for each habit, or statistics that your can view for everuthing together. I personally like competing with myself for the best statistics, even when it includes documenting failures. The devs of this app could really learn something from the way those apps are designed. The new habit app even has a timer option, so if you set a goal to watch no more than 2 hours of tv, you start the timer when you begin, and if you let the timer go over it automatically marks as incomplete for the day. Some real innovation in the habit tracking market right there. There are way better apps out there. Tick tick helps me organize my one off tasks, but not much else.
