People coming from different task management systems often get confused with certain terminology used in 2Do, most specifically the word "schedule" and "defer". In 2Do, any task with a future start date is referred to as "scheduled" whereas you’d defer its "due" date.
The idea being that normally you would "schedule" a task to begin at a certain date/time, since the act of scheduling has to do with planning, while you would "defer" a task that had a hard dead line (due date), since deferring is an act of postponing something that was due soon.
a plan for carrying out a process or procedure, giving lists of intended events and times.
put off (an action or event) to a later time; postpone.
