Advanced recurring date syntax?

SG

I have a series of tasks that are standing appointments every X months at Y.

I am easily able to do the recurring date with a "every 3 months at noon".

However, I don't want to wait until the day of the next occurence to add the task, so I am trying to pull "starting" into the equation.

I created a task "every 3 months starting 2/15/2013 at noon" and what was created is a task showing a due date of "Feb 15 2013 @ 11:59pm"

I am sure this is just a syntax issue where I am not putting the "at noon" part where it needs to go, but I can't for the life of me find a combo that's correct. What am I missing?

Hello Shawn,

The correct date formula must include the time of the task before the "starting" part as it's the task that should recur at noon and not the starting date so in this example, it should be:

every 3 months at noon starting 2/15/2013

However, there indeed seems to be an issue this syntax and I have passed it to the developers. We will try to fix this issue as soon as we can, sorry for the inconvenience.


Best regards,
David
