In an org mode buffer (not in an org-agenda buffer) I fairly often want to shift a date by one week at a time.

How can I do that?


With the cursor on the timestamp, C-c . to active the date selection dialog (org C-c ! if it's an inactive timestamp). It will default to the current value of the timestamp. Then shift-<up> shift-<down> changes the date by one week.

  • I swear I've tried this a whole bunch of times before and if ends up inserting another date overlapping in some weird way with the one I C-c .ed on. Now it works for me and I can't get it to do the overlapping thing any more. I don't know what I'm doing different :-/ – Croad Langshan Dec 16 '18 at 17:53
