Set due date by number of days

It would be great if we could assign due dates in a task based on number of days. So if I create a new task today and want it due in 7 days, I would just type “+7” or something instead of picking the date in the calendar.

This functionality is especially needed for duplicating tasks. We area creating task templates that can be duplicated and moved to a project for repeat sequences and workflows. Duplicating a task that has a duration set to 7 days could then set the due date of the new task based on days from today, not the date of the task that it was copied from.

Hello,

Thank you for the suggestion! We plan to add Task Templates functionality and it will have a relative date input.
