Yes, I'm already doing that and all of them work.


But, that's not my issue ...

I can add the "+1m" (or whatever) in a newly created "capture" buffer
*after* I type the date/time, task description, and <ENTER>.

But how to do this sooner?


I'd like to enter something like "Jan 7 +1y" in the mini-buffer while
creating the new item.

Maybe there is a way to do this, but I don't know how!  ;-)

Sorry if this is still unclear ... hard to describe ...


Thanks for your comments,

  -Kenneth

So, no one has any ideas about the syntax for an all-in-minibuffer
specification of a repeated, scheduled event?

PS  Thanks, Pete, for your explaining  "(=F)" ...

I believe this means org has chosen the future option of an ambiguous
input. e.g., it is December 10th. I use C-c . to create a timestamp and
simply put in "9". The closest date that matches is December 9th, but
there is a setting (I think org-read-date-prefer-future) that makes it
prefer to choose a date in the future, so it is letting you know that it
is opting for the future date instead of the closest date.

I could be wrong, but that is my understanding.

Good day!

Is there a way that I can specify a scheduled task's repeat period
within a single "time specification" in the minibuffer?  I thought
something like this would work:

            Dec 25 +1y

but it neither inserts the "repeater" nor gives any error message.

I've tried various things and checked the manual, but can't seem to find
the right combination of keystrokes.


Thanks for your comments!
