How do I setup reoccurring tasks until completed?

EG

I have a few tasks that I would like to remind myself for the entire month of January that I would like them to reoccurring or be remained on a daily basis until I actually do them.

Suggestions?

Thank you.

Hello Ernesto,

If these tasks require a completion every day until a specified date then unfortunately, it's not possible to set up such tasks in Todoist right now (you're welcome to vote for this request http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/214/ ). You can add a due date "every day" and once you're done with the task, you can right-click on it and choose "Delete".

However, if the task only requires one completion, but you'd like to receive an email, mobile or push notification reminder for it, please set the due date of it to "31 Jan", then right-click on the task (after adding it), choose "Reminders" and set an absolute reminder with a due date such as "every day at 8am" which will result in having a task that only gets completed once, but a daily reminder assigned to it.


Best regards,
David
