I have a task sheduled like that:

* TODO  Order from a delivery service
  SCHEDULED: <2020-10-06 Di .+2w>

So if I understand the resheduling correctly if I miss the task, it
get's resheduled 2 weeks later (probably deadline would be better here)?

But the delivery service delievers weekly I just choose to only order
all 2 weeks from it. So if I miss a date I would shop myself for 1
week and then order again 1 week later not 2 but if I succeed I only
order 2 weeks later.

Is there a way to reshedule it, if it fails 1 week later and if I
complete it, reshedule 2 weeks later?

I don't think there's any way to do this automatically when you change
the TODO state of the entry.

The simplest way I can think of is to do C-c C-s +7 (i.e., call
org-schedule and give a new date a week later at the prompt). If doing
this on a different day than the scheduled day, you'll need to change
the interval you enter (e.g., if you missed it by 2 days, enter +5) or
type in the new date manually.

Another option is C-c C-x c (i.e., org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift).
Clone the tree one time, with a shift of one week, then delete the old
tree. The advantage of this option is that the time shift will be
relative to the old scheduled/deadline date, not the date on which you
run the command, so you can always say +1w.

Hope that helps!

You could probably set something up with the org-edna package on MELPA.

There is no built-in way to do it, but you can always write your own
org-trigger-hook.

Alternatively, you can also use org-edna. Something like

:TRIGGER: if self todo-state?("FAILED") then self scheduled!("++14d") todo!("TODO") else self scheduled!("++7d") todo!("TODO") endif

Best,
Ihor
