Reminders for Recurring tasks

DW

Hi Guy's

I wonder if you could help me setting up reminders for recurring tasks?

I have a task that I need to complete by the last Friday in the month - not a problem I understand the syntax to create that (very easily - thank you)

I want the reminder to start 10 days before the due date. I tried (somewhat forlornly) 10 days before the last Friday, and that didn't work.

Can you help?

Thanks

Dave

Dave,

You could set a Relative reminder, but ONLY if your task has a TIME associated (i.e. every last Fri at 10:00).

If you enter a TIME, you can then set a RELATIVE reminder for 1, 2, 3 or 7 days. It doesn't appear that you set your own time period.


Best regards,
Randy Miller

I like Todoist syntax too but there must be a gui for this even if you're a poweruser you will never know everything.
