Recurring every x years


Hi Guys,

Is there any way to set tasks to recur on a bi-annual basis.

I'm looking to specifically do:

Every year.
Every 2 years.
Every 3 years.

Thanks for your time.

Hello Jon,

Unfortunately, that's not possible right now, but we'll consider adding such syntax in the future and you're welcome to vote for it in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/22/

For now, as a workaround, you could create a task to occur "every 730 days starting 15/8", for example. It will not adjust on leap years.

If you want a task that will occur only every 1 year, then please use simply "every 15 Aug" and it will work correctly even in years with 366 days.

Best regards,

Would like to see this feature added. I have quite a few tasks -- from automatic watch cleaning to electric razor foil replacement -- that need to repeat every two or three (or more) years.

I would also like this functionality.

Surprised this hasn't been fixed yet. Please add it. In the meantime please make it clearer in the documentation that this syntax is not supported. I was convinced I was doing something wrong.
