Recurring task: every monday and tuesday every two weeks


Hello, I'm not able to setup a recurring task: every monday and tuesday every two weeks
Could you explain to me how to do it?

Hello Laura,

Unfortunately, such combination is not possible.

You can set a task to "every Mon, Tue" - this will work. You can also set a task to "every 14 days" or "every 14 days stating Mon" - this will work as a separate task as well, but you can't set it to "every Mon, Tue" and skip every second week.

That said, I would recommend to create two tasks, one set to "ev 14 days starting Mon" and the other to "ev 14 days starting Tue" - both will work correctly and if you give them the same names, you'll see them on your daily or weekly list as if they were the same task.

Best regards,

Laura Ballistreri

ok, in addition I have to setup about 5 tasks a day, with 2 subtasks each, to do every weekday (from monday to friday) alternating one week yes and one week not.
So you told me that I have to program (5 tasks + 10 subtasks) * 5 days = 75 tasks? is it right?
I think It's too much! Have you something to suggest?

Kind regards

If you need 2 tasks as described above "ev 14 days starting Mon" and "ev 14 days Starting Tue" each day. Then that is correct. At least at the current time as to what our syntax allows.

It only needs to be added once, then each other week it will recur again.
