Is there a way to make setting reoccurring dates easier? I am trying to setup reoccurring dates for Quarterly and Annual things and it is so difficult! I am hoping for something like how outlook is. Why does it have you write things out rather then a normal setup???? Very frustrating!

We will consider improving the setting of recurring dates in the future. For now, please refer to this page: https://todoist.com/Help/timeInsert for a complete list of available recurring dates.
In order to set an annual task, please use the following date formula:
every Jan 27
which you can also shorten and use "ev 1/27" which will set a task to occur every year on January 27th. You can of course use any other date as you wish.
As for quarterly tasks - we will add a better syntax for this option in the future, but for now, you could try to use:
every 91 days starting Jan 27
or simply create 4 tasks with the same name, each set to the exact date, for example:
ev Jan 27
ev Apr 27
ev Jul 27
ev Oct 27
