1. Common Usage-related Questions

1.1 How do I change the default screen to another list?

To set a default screen for Tasks IQ, access More Settings by tapping on the top rightmost icon, then tap on 'Default List'.

Tap on your desired default screen choice and it will be saved automatically.

 

1.2 What is the 'Look Ahead' for?

The 'Look Ahead' feature is a threshold that determines when a repeating task is populated.

For example a task is set to repeat every 1 week on 1st Jan. A look ahead of 7 days will show 2 tasks created (1st & 7th Jan) while a look ahead of 14 days will show 3 tasks (1st, 7th and 14th) created. These tasks will be created in Google Tasks upon a successful sync.

The other repeated tasks will be created only when they are within the 'Look Ahead' range to avoid cluttering your task lists.

Do note that increasing the threshold will populate more repeating tasks, but decreasing the threshold will not delete those that are already created.
