Handling Start Date vs. Due Dates in Todoist


I am considering moving from my beloved Things 3 to Todoist for the cross-platform functionality (I’m PC at work and Mac at home). One of the features I love in Things is the ability to assign tasks both a start date and due date/deadline. In Todoist, which doesn’t support this feature, a method I’ve tried is to have a Tickler “project” for those tasks with future start dates (I know these technically belong on my calendar, but I really prefer to keep them in my list manager). It works fine, but I am curious if anyone out there has another method that works well for them?
