I normally use the iOS version of todo, but the OSX companion is useful as well. I've just been confounded that I want to enter a drivers licence renewal date in 3 years time, and I can't see any way to easily do this without scrolling through month after month of dates.... is this correct? If so - shocking...
Key in the date while you are creating the task ... Renew Drivers license (Jan 1 2017) -List name
Good reminder! I'd forgotten you could do that in the OSX version as well. Although, the date parsing has a lot to be desired... I wish it did 24hour time eg. 13:30. I always get it wrong as its so inflexible and then get no update.
But thanks for the tip as it would have saved me some frustration from above.
