Hi Matt,

you can now set the NOBLOCKING property to turn off blocking for individual entries.

I would like to be able to switch the Pay Rent project to done in order
to add a note and timestamp to mark its completion. But my global
dependency setting blocks this, since the todos below are repeating and
thus immediately get turned back to todos when they are done. Hence my
request: Would it be possible to add a property that would prevent
dependency checking on certain headlines? E.g.,




Since we already have an ORDERED switch, I think this would be a nice

Thanks in advance for considering the request.
