Hey list,

Does org allow automatically adding a repeater (say, +1d) to a schedule
when adding it with C-c C-s?

If not, I think it wouldn't be so hard to monkeypatch the method to do so,
would it?

Thanks,

--
Marcelo.

No -- at least, not yet:

  ╭────
  │ C-c C-s runs the command org-schedule, which is an interactive Lisp function in

  │ With one universal prefix argument, remove any scheduling date from the item.

You see that C-c C-s is already pretty loaded (with up to two universal
arguments foreseen...).

Thank you.

 This might be a good feature and I might looking into creating a new
version that does this automatically, since I use the current day agenda
view as my next actions list, and use it to automatically carry tasks to
the following day, so the +1d repeater really keeps things clean for my
specific workflow.

The nice thing is that when they are "current", they are put in the right
order (as they are defined in the org file in question), but what bugs me
is that when they are outdated, they are ordered by the oldest to the
newest, it seems.

I've explored this a bit and this is complicated.

The syntax I had in mind is using (+1d) to add a repeater
via `org-read-date', which could be used to add more info
as well.

I'll put this on my "maybe" list anyway and see if I can
come up with something, as I agree this would be useful.

Thanks,
