Recurring Tasks

  1. 5 months ago

    I was wondering if there is a way to enter a recurring task...or, is it better just to create a recurring event?

    Recurring items can only be added as an event in the Calendar section. There is no current way for a Task to be a recurring item. Some development is in progress to add Recurring Tasks but won't be available until the new year.

    For the passionate discussion:

    Any input you may have will be invaluable.

    I'm not sure if this is quite the place, but here goes....! Can I create an event that spans two days? For example, I have a long flight that starts at 10pm on day 1 and ends at 13:00 (1pm) on day 2. Can I create that event from the one form associated - initially - with day 1 or must I make two events from 22:00 to 23:59 on day 1 and 00:01 to 13:00 on day 2 (and I use those figures as military experience taught me you NEVER use 00:00!!)

    You can indeed set up an Event to span over many days, like so:

  5. Thanks so much Chris. It seems so easy - yet whenever I'd tried, it never seemed to work for me! Maybe its' 'the way' I was attempting to add an event - who knows? But I tried, as you suggested, and it worked perfectly. I must admit, I always assumed it would - I didn't for a moment imagine that the PIM wouldn't take account of multi-day events! But when things don't quite do what you'd expected, you do start to doubt your own sanity...... My faith is totally restored!!
