Skip task instead of Complete


#1

One feature that would be useful for us is to be able to skip a (recurring) task instead of completing it.
We have a deadlines list for our admin team that has different tasks all set to recur on individual days and time frames, however when we look at it, it can be quite misleading if team members have not completed a task every day/week/month, but have to tick it to move on to the next one.
i.e. one task is to do a weekly check in with the team, however if I missed a week, I still have to tick it to complete it and create the next task.
Rather than delete the task, it would be good to have something that showed it wasn’t done.
Or has anyone got a work around? Relatively new to the reporting side of things :slight_smile:

What I usually do is change the due date to match the next occurence, that way you “skip” the current task

I am clear on the work around, however as a manager, it would be really helpful to know if someone did not complete a weekly task. For instance, we have put our weekly meeting agenda into Asana and everyone clocks in with Toggl through Asana. Skipping would be a great way to keep attendance.

I would like to add that the options for a task should be:
Completed
Not Completed.

Tasks are often necessary within a specific timeline. I am looking at my staff’s tasks and see that they missed an important deadline, therefore the task is no longer important. Their only option is to click completed or delete. This does not allow for accurate tracking of tasks for my reporting.
