Set a reminder for variable recuring task


Using the Android app I need to set a reminder to alert me 6 days before a task I need to complete the 1st of every month. How do I go about doing this ?

Hi Dan,

When creating or editing a task you can click on the Clock Tab at the top, then + to add a reminder. You have two options, Before tasks' due date, but this allows up to 3 days before, then on a date. This is where you can enter the specific date which would be 6 days before.

Thanks, but using the second option, entering a specific date, how do I do that for a task that reoccurs at the beginning of each month ? Do I have to set up 12 different reminders, one for each month ?

Hello Dan,

Unfortunately, that would indeed be the only workaround. Considering that a relative reminder can't be set to "6 days before", creating 12 tasks, each for a separate month would be the only solution.

Best regards,
