15th and 30th of every month

DB

I apologize in advance if this has been asked and answered already: Is there a way to set a recurring task for (say) the 15th and 30th of every month?

I understand I can set two different task items, one to recur every 15th of the month and the other to recur every 30th of the month, but I'm wondering if I can set a single recurring task item using two (or three, or four, etc.) specific dates for each month.

Thank you for a wonderful product.

Dan

Hello Dan,

unfortunately, such option is not available, but we will consider adding more advanced recurring dates in the future. Feel free to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/22/

For now, you can set up 2 tasks and even give them the same name so the will seem as a single task when they appear on your schedule.

Please note - it's advised to use: "every lday" instead of "every 30" for the second task because using "ev 30" will skip February which never has 30 days and the "every last day" syntax will always set the task to the last day of the month regardless of the number of days it has.


Best regards,
David

David, thank you so much for this, especially the helpful 'every last day' syntax suggestion!

I have to say, the product itself and your support is just superior in every way. Thank you all so much!

I was wondering if it would be possible to have "every 30" occur on the last day of months that don't have that many days? I can see myself forgetting this detail because I'm just that forgetful... which is part of the reason I use this product! Hopefully you can help us air-heads out.

Hello Tanya,

You can use the due date "ev lday" (or "every last day") which will be scheduled for the last day of every month regardless of how many days it has.


Best regards,
David
