Is there an option to not plan two tasks from the same project on the same day? I have my half marathon training schedule completely set up in Skedpal so I also know what sort of training I have to do, so it’s a list of tasks within the project “1/2 Marathon training”.
First question: is it possible to set the option that two tasks from that project are not scheduled on the same day? Right now it somehow plans two training sessions right after another on the same day, which is of course not feasible for me to do. I still like to plan in advance, so ‘Schedule tasks one at a time’ is not workable.
Second question: would it be possible to set similar scheduling on a single project as for a recurring item, e.g. Three times a week?

When both task1 and task2 are scheduled on the same day, you can ‘defer‘ task2 by 1 day and update your schedule again.
When you set your recurring tasks and select ‘3 times a week’ option, the 3 sessions will always be separated by at least a day. https://www.skedpal.com/knowledge-base/how-to-setup-recurring-tasks/
Yeah, I know about the deferring, I was hoping it would be possible to have this done automatically, so I don’t have to manually do it. Right now Skedpal tends to plan all three of my training sessions on Saturday, since I have the most free time there, and I have to manually drag it to another day.
For the recurring task I indeed knew it would be separated by at least a day, main question was if it would be possible (in the future maybe) to have this similar scheduling/recurring for a whole project. So, that three tasks of that project are scheduled each week until the project is finished.1 week, 1 day ago SethParticipant
Ah, I missed your point; sorry. This is indeed something on our roadmap that will enable you to set a ‘maximum’ time you want to spend on a project in each day or week. It’s not going to be the maximum count of tasks in each day, but the maximum total duration each day; makes sense?
In the current version, you can do this by designing a time-map that specifies the hours for this project for each day.
Ah, cool, thanks! Yeah, max total duration each day would definitely help. I’ll stick to the manual shuffle till then =)
