- every first workday in month
- every 3rd workday

unfortunately, that's not possible right now. You can find the list of all currently supported dates here:

It's been a couple of years since this post... Is it possible yet to do the "last workday in a month"?

Hello John,

Yes, with our new date parser (released last week), you can set a task to "every last workday", "every last weekday" or just "last workday" or "last weekday", it you don't want it to be a recurring task :-)

I just tried to use "every first workday" meaning to set the task to every first workday of each month. But the next date seted is next monday (Aug 10th). What should I do to set to the first day of each month???

Hi Luiz,

I am afraid this format (every first workday) is not supported yet :-(

We will look into adding it int he future parser updates.

The most interesting is that "every last workday" is supported and understanded by Todoist as "every last workday of each month". So, why not to the first workday? The first request here includes the "first workday" also.

Agreed, Why is something as last workday added after three years and first workdays isn't. seems to be a natural thing something may want.

As you have a business application why is all workday options not built seems natural and necessary
