Steps:

 

 In this article, we will tell you how to recur a task in nTask.

  • A new pop up will appear displaying three tabs where you can select recurrence on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

  • If you want your task to repeat on a daily basis than select daily and set other parameters accordingly.
  • In the “Every” field you can select “1” if you want your task to repeat every day.
  • If you want your task to repeat after two days then write “2” and it will repeat on every second day and so on.
  • The “repeat at” field denotes the time of the day when the task is going to repeat.
  • The stop by field denotes either a specific date on which the task will stop recurring or number of iterations.
  • You can select a date or select after and then specify the number of iterations after which the task should not recur.

  • Similarly, you can create a task on a weekly basis as well.

  • The only difference is that the “every field” now has a selection of days.
  • You can select multiple days of a week and skip some if you want as per your requirements.
  • You can have a repeating task on specific days of the week.
  • The rest of the functionality is exactly the same.
  • If you select the monthly tab, you can select a complete schedule for a task to repeat on specific days of the month.
  • Other than that the recurring task feature is exactly the same as the weekly one.

If you have already set a Task to recur than you will see a delete schedule button as well.

  • To repeat a task according to some other parameters you will have to delete the old schedule first.
  • To see the exact days on which a Task repeats/recurs, you will have to click on the recurring task icon.

  • This button will display the repetition on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
  • There is one other option where you can specify if you want to include weekends meaning Saturdays and Sundays or recurrence should occur before or after the weekend.
