Setting annual and monthly recurring tasks

C

I can't seem to create recurring tasks that set annually or monthly. I've tried:

"every year after 1 Feb"
"annually after 1 Feb"
"every 1 year after 1 Feb"

AND

"every 2 months after 1 Feb"
"every 4th saturday"

None of these works. Is Toodoist capable of these settings or is my syntax incorrect?

Regarding the annual issue, I suppose I could say something like:

"every 365 days starting 1 Feb" - think that would work, but that seems awkward given what toodooist appears to be able to understand.

Hello chilwin,

To set recurring dates for your tasks, you can use:
* every 12 months starting 1 Feb - completing this will result in a due date 12 months from 1 Feb
* after 12 months starting 1 Feb - completing this will result in a due date 12 months from the completion date

* every 2 months starting 1 Feb - completing this will result in a due date 2 months from 1 Feb
* after 2 months starting 1 Feb - completing this will result in a due date 2 months from the completion date

every 4th saturday - could you please try this again, it should work just fine but please let me know if doesn't

Hello,

Aside from what Aygul mentioned, you can also use "every 1 Feb" or "ev 12 May" for annual dates :)


Best regards,
David

Hi Matt,

You can do "ev second saturday" but not specific to March.
