Can I set up a recurring date so that I have to "go to gym five times per week" or "take antibiotics twice per day"?
Yes and no. You cannot create a recurring task that is 5 times a week, or twice per day but there are solutions.
5 times a week would be every single day of the workweek, so you can enter "every workday" and it will be Monday to Friday.
For the twice a day, at the moment you will need to create two separate tasks for this.
We hope we can improve our syntax options in the future.
Thanks, Brendon! This would be a super useful feature to have in the future. Keep up the great work! I love todoist.
Hi Just wanted to add my plus one to say that I would love to have a X times a day option.
Everyday @ 8am, Everyday @ 4pm
Everyday @ 8am AND Everyday @ 4pm
Everyday @ 8am and @ 4pm
Many thanks for creating a brilliant todo app :)
I would like to have this option too, as I have some tasks to do twice a day at work.
Have this feature been implemented yet? because I just tried it but still not working...
I know we could split the same task to 2 tasks with different times but it would be silly :p
This feature hasn't been implemented yet, unfortunately, but we'll look into it in the future.
Is there any update on this feature ? I would like to see it, too. Thank you !
We sadly don't have any news regarding this feature yet.
Can I suggest to have a way to follow request and status ?
I like your tool and I consider that a software is never complete and can continuously be improved. Of course, speed depend of ressources. But when someone ask for an improvement, I think that we would like to have a status:
- Not yet approved
- Approved but not planned
- Approved and planned for vote
- Voted by user for a coming release.
- Done on version xxxx
I suggest that cause, I checked your forum and see lot of people satisfied by the tool but complains because you told the idea is good but we do not know when it will be implemented. I also think that you can be frustrated to answer this :D
Unfortunately, we can't give such status for any feature as we don't usually plan future implementations years ahead. We work on something until it's good, release it and then see what can we add next so we have a list of hundreds of requests, none of which have a certain status so we may consider everything in time :-)
That said, all we can say in this case that this feature in particular is not something we're working on right now, but this doesn't mean that it's something we've decided not to implement, it's one of the features we'll consider to add in the future.
Is there any news or updates for this feature now that the new apps and site have been released along with the following blog quote?
"The intelligent date parser that powers Quick Add is available in 14 languages and recognizes 300+ natural language rules in each, making your recurring due date options virtually limitless."
It seems there's some popularity for this feature. If you could add it, that'd be great!
really want this feature!!
Yep, me too.
