Recurring task - same date of each quarter

P

Greetings,

I am trying to schedule a recurring task for the 5th day of the first month in a quarter. The closest I have come is, "every 3 months starting jul 5", but then the next recurring day is Oct 3, then Jan 1. It's essentially doing every 90 days rather than the fifth day of the month. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Phillip

Hi Philip,

You can use "every 90 days starting <month> <day>". Just replace the month and day with the actual day on when you want the task to start.

Hi Clyde,

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, the "every 90 days" does the same thing. I literally calculates out every 90 days so that instead of having July 5th, Oct 5th, Jan 5th, etc, you get July 5th, Oct 3rd, Jan 1st, etc. So, it doesn't give you the same day every month. Within one year, you end up being in the wrong month altogether.

Thanks,
Phillip

Hi Philip,

I see. Unfortunately, there's no specific recurring date syntax that does this at the moment. We'll look into adding such a syntax in the future.
