How to set tasks without an executive?

How to create a regular task (repeating)? How to cancel the repetition of a task?

Any task that must be carried out again can be made regular, whether it is a weekly report for the client, monthly payroll, or quarterly tax report. In order to enable repetition, choose «repeat» item in the modal window of window setting.


In the time frames setting window, there will appear a menu with repetitions options.

1 — You can cancel any repetition of the task by just disabling the option
2 — Installation options for further developments after the closure of a repeating task

A repeating task can have two options of further development after the closing of a task:


1 option: Create a new task

After the closure of a repeating task, a new task with the new time frame (or range) is created according to the schedule of repetitions. This is the default algorithm.


2 option: Data transfer

Use this type of repetitions for periodic tasks that do not require reporting and allow for non-completion. It will not be a copy of a closed problem but the same open task. Immediately after closing, it opens again with the next scheduled date of repetition.

For this, move the slider to the transfer date position.


Please, note! It is not necessary to close this type of task. Such task will not be burning and will move the time frame to the next day or a period of repetition according to the schedule. Such type of repetitions is convenient to use as a reminder about certain regular events.

All repeating tasks are marked with the following icon1.
