Try adding your task, then in the 'date window', enter "every 14 days starting today" (assuming 'today' is Wednesday!)

But this way, not assure the wednesdays, when it will be a month of 30 days, 31 days, 28 days, every 14 days it will be tuesday o thursday, ...

I'm pretty confident that there are seven days in a week, no matter the number of days in the month ...

Are you asking to be reminded 'every OTHER Wednesday' (which would result in twenty-six reminders per year, based on a fifty-two week year) or 'every SECOND Wednesday in the month' (which would result in twelve reminders per year)?

Hello Pasqual,

If you want to set a task due every other Wednesday, that is - every 2 weeks on Wednesday, please use the formula Randolph mentioned: "every 14 days starting Wed". Such task will repeat biweekly on every other Wednesday.

However, if you want the task to be set only once a month on the second Wednesday in each month, please use: "every 2nd Wed".

Best regards,
