Start of a recurring date

PS

Hey,

I'd like to have a recurring task every 2nd Monday, starting with Feb 3rd

I tried "ev 2nd mon starting 3.2." and "ev 2nd mon starting +13" and even "ev 2nd mon after 2.2.", to no avail. Help?

Thx,
peter.

Hi Peter,

The correct syntax would be "every second monday starting 3 feb". We do not currently support dates as you provided.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Unfortunately, that doesn't work either. C/P the above string still results in start date of Feb 10th.

Peter,

Which is correct. As February 3 is not the second Monday, the 10th is.

Regards,
Brendon.

Oh, I see -- I guess I really wanted "every 14 days starting 3.2."

Thanks for the help

Peter,

That is also possible, but I was thinking you wanted it the other way.
Your option would be "ev 14 days starting feb 3".

Thanks,
Brendon.

On my screen 3.2. works out to Feb 3rd, probably because of my date format settings? Anyway, it looks good now. Thanks again.
