Recurring dates - three days before every second friday

IS

There's a way to write a recurring date as "every second Tuesday" as a reminder to complete something before the second Friday. The problem is that the second Tuesday might actually be three days before the third Friday, not the second. Is there a way to write a recurrence that is "Three days before every second Friday"?

Hi Ian,

"Three days before every second Friday" is not a supported syntax yet. You can however try "Every 2nd Friday" with a reminder 3 days before the due date. You can choose from Email, Push Notification, or SMS reminder.

Best Regards,

Clyde

Thanks Clyde. What is the shortcut (what do I have type in the reminder date field) to have the reminder 3 days before the due date?

Hi Ian,

Just have something like "Every 2nd Friday @ 6am". The time is up to you, 6am is just an example. You can then set up a reminder. Just below the date field, you can click on the alarm clock icon and select your reminder of choice and then when you want to the reminder to occur (in our case it's 3 days prior to the tasks due date).

Regards,

Clyde
