Can I have a task [X] times per day or week?

SI

Can I set up a recurring date so that I have to "go to gym five times per week" or "take antibiotics twice per day"?

Thanks!

Hi Sonia,

Yes and no. You cannot create a recurring task that is 5 times a week, or twice per day but there are solutions.

5 times a week would be every single day of the workweek, so you can enter "every workday" and it will be Monday to Friday.

For the twice a day, at the moment you will need to create two separate tasks for this.

We hope we can improve our syntax options in the future.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Hi Just wanted to add my plus one to say that I would love to have a X times a day option.

Everyday @ 8am, Everyday @ 4pm
or
Everyday @ 8am AND Everyday @ 4pm
or
Everyday @ 8am and @ 4pm

Many thanks for creating a brilliant todo app :)

Hello,

I would like to have this option too, as I have some tasks to do twice a day at work.

Thanks!.
