I've been trying to find the right approach of scheduling a repeatable sequence of tasks:
first approach was to mark the parent as repeatable and children as normal tasks.
* TODO This is the parent task SCHEDULED <2020-01-01 Wed ++1w> :PROPERTIES: :ORDERED: t :END: ** TODO This is 1st subtask ** TODO This is 2nd subtask
The downside of this approach is that once marking the parent task as done, I need to manually change the state of the child tasks back to TODO.
the second approach I have tried is to mark both the parent and child tasks as repeating. This approach doesn't work (at all) as the parent can never be marked as DONE.
(This behavior led to the 3rd approach)
in the third approach, only the child tasks are marked as repeating. The parent task is never marked as DONE (it's not possible) and it actually never shows up in agendas either.
Are there other approaches? Can I improve on any of the approached above?
