Tasks: Understanding 'skip' logic

In your tasks dashboard, you have the option to 'skip' tasks individually, or in bulk. When you utilize the 'skip' button, the sequence that that task is a part of retains its original structure and time intervals. This is true for tasks that are due, as well as overdue. Here's an example of how that works:

Sequence structure (Task is 'due'):

Stage 1: Email on day 1

Stage 2: LinkedIn profile visit on day 4 (3 days after stage 1)

Stage 3: Email on day 7 (3 days after stage 2)

The email goes out on day 1, and then you decide to 'skip' the LinkedIn profile visit on day 4. The stage 3 email will still go out on day 7, as originally scheduled. All that to say, skipping a task does not alter the timing of your sequence.

Sequence structure (task is 'overdue'):

Stage 1: Email on day 1

Stage 2: LinkedIn profile visit on day 4 (overdue by 4 days, we are now on day 8). 

*The sequence will wait in stage 2 until the tasks is completed or skipped. 

Stage 3: Email three days after previous stage. In this instance, stage 3 will go out on day 11, because stage 2 was completed or skipped on day 8.
