Subject: likely re-order date problem solution
Date: Fri, 16 Jul 2021 11:19:57 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <alpine.NEB.2.23.451.2107161114520.7138@panix1.panix.com> (raw)

I think I figured out how to make re-order dates work in orgmode.
The start date is the date when items start getting used.  So subtract the
number of weeks before the next order is needed from the start date and
write that time stamp in with a + repeater value to cover the days until
the next order.  You get back your start date with a repeater.  So copy
that time stamp down and so long as the repeater continues to work you
should get a series of dates matching your re-order date requirements.
There may be an easier way to do this in orgmode but I haven't run across
that one yet.
