How do i set a reminder for the last monday of a specific month


I have tried every last monday in May, may ev last monday and various other forms of syntax. How do I set a recurring to-do for the last Monday in May?

Hello Chris,

Unfortunately, that's not possible. You can use "ev last Mon" to make a monthly recurring task, but you can set it as an annual task for a specific month.

We will consider adding more complex recurrence syntax in the future an you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/22/

For now, as a workaround, you can set the task to recur: "every 364 days starting 27. May 2013". Every year, the last Monday of a month is shifted one day behind so it will be:
- 27 May 2013
- 26 May 2014
- 25 May 2015
so such task would work correctly for a while until it shifts 7 days when there will be another week in this month. Nonetheless, as a workaround, it would for for some years.

Best regards,
