problem with recurring dates

D

Hi,
I am adding a task with the date "every day at 0930". However, in the 7-days view it only shows up tomorrow and not the subsequent days...

Best,
David

David,

Try the syntax "everyday at 09:30"; you have a space character between "every" and "day and you don't have a colon symbol between 09 and 30 in the time.

Hey,
thanks, but no that's not it. the syntax 'every day at 0930' should be fine according to the help page. I tried 'everday @ 09:30' but that didn't help. It even detects the recurrence as shown by the round-arrow symbol, it just doesn't work. Here is a screenshot ('task2', a 'task', and 'task' have all been created that way):

David,

I believe that what you are seeing IS correct; it is by deign. When you complete each Task today (Sunday), each Task will again be shown for the next day (in this case, on Monday).

If you don't complete a Task Today, the Task will be shown as overdue Tomorrow. If you complete the Task on Monday, the Task will be rescheduled to Tuesday and will be shown as being on Tuesday.

Hi Randy,
you are right, I just tried it. Somehow, I was sure that I once saw that a task was added to all subsequent days...

thanks,
David
