Is there a way to make setting reoccurring dates easier? I am trying to setup reoccurring dates for Quarterly and Annual things and it is so difficult! I am hoping for something like how outlook is. Why does it have you write things out rather then a normal setup???? Very frustrating!
We will consider improving the setting of recurring dates in the future. For now, please refer to this page: https://todoist.com/Help/timeInsert for a complete list of available recurring dates.
In order to set an annual task, please use the following date formula:
every Jan 27
which you can also shorten and use "ev 1/27" which will set a task to occur every year on January 27th. You can of course use any other date as you wish.
As for quarterly tasks - we will add a better syntax for this option in the future, but for now, you could try to use:
every 91 days starting Jan 27
or simply create 4 tasks with the same name, each set to the exact date, for example:
ev Jan 27
ev Apr 27
ev Jul 27
ev Oct 27
Hello. I am trying to do exactly this with annual repeat, and when I enter > every Jan 27 < I get an 'Invalid Date' error.
I don't know if this (ev jan 27) syntax is a bug or not, but try inputting "ev 27 jan" (or "every 27 jan").
That did it! Thanks.
How about every 4th Sunday in January? Is this possible?
You can use 'ev 4th sunday" but not specifically for January, it would recurred for all months.
