I would like to have the option to have a Start Date begin x days before the due date. This way I could set a due date and start seeing the task in my Focus List x days before it is actually due.
For example. My mortgage payment is due on the 1st of each month. I set a task with a DUE DATE of May 1, a repeat of Monthly from due date. Then I could set the START DATE 7 days before to automatically have the task appear in my Focus List or Today view one week in advance.
I've tried to use 3rd Tuesday and such but given the dynamics of the calendar in relation to dates and days of the week this often has me starting in the middle of the month. Then i have to keep deferring it until the appropriate time.
