Expiration dates?

Is there anything that allows for an expiration date on a task. I have repeating tasks that I may not complete during the current cycle and it would be nice if they just expired and moved to and expired or not completed list. Then the next cycle could repopulate.

Is there anything like a sleeper setting. You could set the date you want the task to be in your current lists. For a monthly cycle say you only wanted to see the task one week before it's due date.

I am very impressed with this product! Any feedback welcome, Michael

You can accomplish this by putting a ? in front of the due date. See http://www.toodledo.com/info/help.php?sel=42 .

You can do this using either the "Start Date" field (you'll need to turn it on in option settings) or by putting a > in front of the date. These two methods work slightly differently (start date allows a task to be hidden until some specified number of days before the due date, while > hides the task until the actual due date).
