Recurring tasks



I want to set a recurring task every 3 months, but on the last day of the month. How do I do this please?

If I just do "every 3 months starting 28 Feb" it schedules the next date as 29 May, then 27 Aug and not 31 May, 31 Aug etc.

Thanks very much.

Hello Paul,

Unfortunately, there is a limitation to this feature - it always treats a month as a 30 day period. We will certainly consider fixing this problem in future updates, but for now to make sure your tasks are scheduled correctly, we advise to create 4 different tasks:
- the first one due "every 28 Feb",
- the second one due "every 31 May",
- the third one due "every 31 Aug",
- and the fourth one due "every 30 Nov".

You can use the same name for all 4 tasks and each time you check it off, it will become due next year, but you'll see the next out of the 4 tasks once the due date arrives.

Best regards,

Is there almost a fix for this?
I would like to use the same feature: every third month on a given date.

Thanks, Peter.

Hello Peter,

Unfortunately, that's not available yet, but we're look into adding such date format in the future.

Best regards,
