recurring almost every month (i.e. summer months)

U

Using your examples I attempted to use
"ev 15 mar, apr, may, jun, jul, aug, sep, oct"
to create a recurring date in the summer months only. It did not work. I also attempted this same sequence with out spaces between the months. It there any way to do this?

Got it:

You have to enter
"ev 15 mar, 15 apr, ..."

Hello Becky,

unfortunately , it's not possible right now. You can only use the date formats listed on this page:

You're welcome to cast your vote for the request to add more complex recurrence syntax in our Votebox:

For now, as a workaround, you could set up a task with the following due date:

ev 15 starting 15. Mar 2012

and on October 15th, change the due date to

ev 15 starting 15. Mar 2013


Best regards,
David

Unfortunately, the example, you've posted (ev 15 mar, 15 jun...) will not work. Although the system will accept this invalid date, the task will work on an annual basis (like ev 15 mar) skipping from 15 Mar 2012 to 15 Mar 2013 upon completion.


Best regards,
David
