Calendar needs option for a 'floating' event, that automatically moves forward from the previous date to the current date?
Jonathan Berger commented
I accomplish this with tasks, and I like doing it that way because it's supported by Google Calendar, which is my central calendar database that all my devices sync to. Only problem is that when the task displays in the current day in the BC2 agenda widget, it's tagged "overdue." If I just had a little configuration option saying "don't display the 'overdue' tag," I'd have the complete functionality. It seems like a pretty easy fix.
As far as I decided ...
when I want to do a task ... and ...
how long it will take (important!)
I would like to have a calendar entry (appointment with myself) ...
for me to see my planned time ...
and for others (wife - very important) to see wtf has to be done (resp. is done).
This is why tasks doesn't work. This is why floating calendar entries would be nice.
(So far I have to look manually for forgotten events and find new time for them.)
Thanks for reading!
this possibility is in progress ?

How I accomplished this?
First my method works for tasks. As events are different.
Add a task
Time is 'no due date'
It will show up until marked 'done'
Tasks can be repetitive:
add the 'repeat' function, e.g. every 2days.
Now you mark it 'done' for today, and it creates a copy on the 'repeat day'.
( I don't know what of this works in the basic version, I use pro.)
Pimlical and iRT Calendar have floating events, and I keep iRT installed just to handle floating events. It would be very nice to have BC2 do this also. It would also be good for tasks, as that way, the reminder will fire again the next day.

Doesn't this functionality already exist with the postpone and overdue features?
I like the idea of having it slide but since it is late I think there should be a way to differentiate from other tasks
Hello Niko, you right, but is it possible the task, which is program, automatically slide the next day if it hasn't been accomphished?
it's called a task, isn't it ?
This fonction could be very useful
Create "sliding events" : when an events was not accomplished the day it was schedule (exemple "pay the rent), it automatically slide the next day. When it was done, youcheck it and it stop sliding.

Tasks can act like that alraedy, and they have a checkbox for done.
They don't seem to have a record of when it was done; if you want that level of reporting, you would have to use a dedicated task or project management system
I would like to have "floating" events or tasks. So they are reported the next day if not done, until I click.
