Can I add a task due on the 28th, and then every 28 days after that?

Can I add a task that is due every 15th of the month?

Hello Shari,

for all available date formats, please refer to this page:

As for the dates you've mentioned, in the first case, you should use the following date:

every 28 days starting 28. Oct

in the second case, please use:

every 15


Best regards,
David

"every 3 months starting 5. Jan" doesn't work, after I mark it complete next date which appears is 5.1.2013

if I try "every 3 months" it works ok

"every year starting 3.1" doesn't work either (cannot mark task as completed)

Hello,

unfortunately, neither of these date formats are supported by Todoist.

Please use only the formats shown on this list:
https://todoist.com/Help/timeInsert

We will consider adding more complex recurrence syntax in future development. Feel free to vote for this request in our Votebox:
http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/22/

For now, as a workaround, you could use the following due dates:

every 90 days starting 5. Jan

every 365 days starting 3. Jan


Best regards,
David
