Who has access?

How does it work?

  • All you need to do is to open the task menu and set the recurring option and select your increments. Recurring reminders are set from the task menu only and can’t be set from the quick add bar. 
  • Make sure that the task at hand does not already have a one-time reminder setup. If it does, tap the Delete option in order to remove it and after that, you will be able to set a recurring reminder.
  • As soon as you complete a recurring item, the next occurrence will pop up at the next scheduled reminder time.
  • Premium users can also set Advanced Recurring reminders: Choose the amount of days/weeks/months between each repetition, decide which days a weekly reminder recurs and plan the dates when the reminder starts and ends.

To view the next occurence

As soon as you complete a recurring item, the next occurrence will pop up at the next scheduled reminder time. Recurrences require completion in order to generate the next items. The next items will not show in the task view, they will generate one by one after the task has been completed. If you complete the task multiple times on the same day you will miss the next reminders and skip the amount of times you completed the task.
