Got a daily task? A weekly meeting? Or a monthly report?

Nifty's recurring tasks removes the hassle of creating these tasks manually by automating task creation based on your custom criteria!

Recurring information

A task will be recur in the status list it is originally created in and will automatically adopt privacy, description, assignments, tags, subtasks, and subtask assignments.

Note that task Deadlines and Comments will not recur. You'll find Recurring Task parameters under the Recurring Tab in the Date section of a Task.

Defining Recurring Criteria

Once you've selected the task you'd like to have recur, you'll be given options to dictate this task's recurring criteria.

Recurring Tasks can be based on:

Dates:  This tasks repeats based on specific date parameters.
Task Status: The task repeats based on the list it is in. For example, you can have this task recreate when the current one is moved from To Do -> In Progress.

Task Completion: The task will repeat as soon as the existing task has been marked completed.

--Date-Based parameters--

Daily: This task recurs more than once a week; select the specific days and time you'd like this task to be created.

Weekly: Choose which day of the week and time this task should be created.

Monthly: Select which day of the month this task should be created. Note that this works off of a specific date, and that only the number of that date should be inputted. Eg: The 15th of every month should be inputted as 15.

Yearly: Select yearly from the dropdown and then choose the month you'd like to repeat the task and input the day of the month.

Eg: The 15th of that month should be inputted as 15.

Period based: This option allows you to repeat tasks bi-weekly, bi-monthly, quarterly, and bi-annually. Simply select the option that suits your workflow the best.

Recurring End Date: Select a date and time that this task should no longer repeat.
