    If I create a series of recurring tasks and then need to change the start date of the entire series Outlook assumes I only want to change the date of the next occurrence of the task and leaves the rest of the series with the original start date. Some people may regard this as a bug

    To take an example, I create a task with a start date of Sunday and an end date of Wednesday which occurs weekly. I then need to change the start date to Monday on the entire series and so edit the recurring task. After I make the change Outlook creates two tasks: (i) a single independent task with the start date changed to Monday, (ii) a recurring task starting the following week with the start date still set to Sunday. This means all the tasks except the first still have a start date of Sunday whereas they all need to be Monday. If you don’t follow this try implementing the example above and see what happens. It would be better if Outlook offered the choice to either change the next occurrence of the task or the entire series as it does when a recurring series of tasks is deleted.

    This problem may also occur with recurring calendar entries, I haven’t checked.
