Hi,

It looks like a mis-took the example. That is correct. "every 2nd Friday" is Aug 8th and 12 Sept, it only occurs once a month.

I don't follow.

How can the 2nd Friday after the 22nd August be 2 weeks before it (the 8th)?

If the terminology is meant to be every 2nd Friday per month - how do you do every second Friday?

Hi Brendan,

"Every 2nd Friday" actually means the second Friday of the month. In the first example, it should have jumped to September 12 since that's the closest 2nd Friday after August 12. Please use "every 2nd friday" so you'll get the correct dates.

Clyde

OK, thank you.
is it possible to have every 2nd Friday where that means a fortnight apart?

Hi Brendan,

You can try using "every 14 days". Try setting it when you want the task to start and test if it behaves as you expected.
