Repeat days till an end date

How would I write "Every day until [month, day]"?

I can get it to repeat tasks by saying "Every WEEKDAY ending may 5", but when I type "Every DAY ending may 5" it gives me an invalid error...

Hi Gabriel,

At the moment we actually do not support ending dates. This seems to be a glitch in the system.

As a workaround you can create the task for everyday starting at a certain date and then move the task to history on the ending date, or hold Ctrl while checking it off the final time.

Surely, this a pretty basic function and I'm surprised that it hasn't been integrated yet. Any news on when this will occur as the workaround suggested doesn't seem to work on an ios system.

I badly need this feature.

What is the current fix of it?

Hi Karim,

The suggested workaround is to set it as normal recurring item and when you don't need it anymore, you can move it to history by right clicking on a tasks and selecting the option "Move to history".

Hmm... That doesn't work so well for those of us who only use a laptop with a tracking pad and our phones...

Code-wise, this shouldn't be too tough. You can set it to start on a particular date. The argument to make it stop at a particular date is pretty similar.

I agree as well; Todoist's date recognition is so fantastic, I spent a long time trying different combinations (thinking, of course it should work) only to realize it wasn't supported.

I LOVE Todoist and plan to be a customer for many years to come, but I would love this feature of ending recurring tasks at a certain date (tomorrow until saturday; today until +3)

This would be a very useful feature for me and is the one glaring deficiency I've found with Todoist thus far.

I'm surprised that on googling to find out what syntax I was missing for this function, it seems the functionality is missing altogether!

Another vote for it to be added ASAP please!
