Recurring due date every month on 30th

J

I am trying to set a recurring due date for the 30th of every month. It appears, on the "Help" page, that I should be able to do this. However, I have tried several combinations of instructions and none seem to work:
*Every 30th
*Ev 30th
*Every month on 30th
*Every month on the 30th
*Ev month on 30th
*Ev month on the 30th

The only thing that works is *Every 30 days - but this is incorrect, as it will fluctuate the date and not necessarily land on the 30th each month.

Am I missing something, obvious or not-so-obvious?

Hi Joshua,

Try using "every 30" as your due date.

Thanks. That seems to solve the problem. Seems so obvious in hindsight.

What happens to every 30 in February? Does it just jump to 30 March :-(

Good point. I did a quick test and tt does just skip from January to March...

Hello,

That's correct - it's a strict due date format, if there is not 30th day in this month, it will skip to the next available. As an alternative, you could use either "every 28" or "every last day".

Thanks David. I take it there is no command for every 'two days before the end of the month'?

Stephen,

Unfortunately not, though to be always on the safe side, you could set the task to "every 28" or even "ev 26" to account for the "worst case scenario" on February.
