This has been driving me crazy. Maybe there is a known solution?
I find I very often want to mention a date or time in the title of a task, for instance:
“Plan and schedule depositions (all must be completed by 4/22)”
If I type this in a task title, Skedpal of course immediately deletes “by 4/22” and adds a due date of 4/22. But 4/22 is not the due date and I want to see “by 4/22” in the title.
Sometimes adding quotes around the date seems to work, other times it doesn’t. I’ve tried parentheses, back slashes, etc. Nothing seems to work. I end up with terrible looking workarounds like:
“Get assistant to proofread memorandum (promised to get to Rob M.o.n.d.a.y.)”
Is there a way to do this that I’m missing? And if not, is it possible to add one? I would be fine with an option to totally turn off the smart date feature and just stop parsing titles for dates altogether; I never use that feature.2 years, 11 months ago SethParticipant
There are two ways to disable the automatic processing of the dates in the task title:

- add an asterisks (*) at the end of the title, or
- totally disable the feature in the settings: Preferences/Default
Seth, is there a cheat-sheet for notations like asterisks (*) at the end of the title?2 years, 11 months ago SethParticipant
Mike, the only specific character that has a meaning here is asterisks. The rest are basically natural language processing. Examples are listed here:2 years, 11 months ago danParticipant

I’m wondering if there is a way to parse start and end date, as well as due date.
Task start 9/1 end 9/9 due 9/9
I would like to simply enter 9/1-9/9 and let it parse start, end, and due date from that.
