How do I create a recurring task?
Don't worry, there's a doc for that!

What does the starts-on date in the summary mean? 

  • This is when you want the recurrence schedule to start. This is different than a task's start date. The starts-on date lets you decide if you want to wait a little bit before that recurrence schedule actually kicks in. 

Can I adjust start dates when a task recurs? 

  • Absolutely yes! Simply click on the start date and adjust it.

What happens if I manually change the Due Date for a recurring task on a schedule? 

  • Manually changing the due date of a task has no effect on any of the recurring settings, it will still follow the same original schedule you have set.


Here's an example:
A task is set to recur on the first Thursday of every month. In August, you manually change the due date back to the first Thursday in July. The next instance of the recurring task will be the first Thursday in September.

If you manually change the due date of the task in August to the first Thursday in September, it will overwrite the September instance of that task, and the next recurrence will be the first Thursday in October.

You can move a task forward up to the day before the next recurrence without impacting the recurring schedule.

Pro tip: If you find your recurring tasks have inadvertently skipped a recurrence, you'll need to remove the recurring schedule and set it up again as new.

Can I see future occurrences on my calendar? 

  • With a paid plan, you can make all future recurring tasks visible. Learn more here.
