Creating recurring tasks
Hover over the item and select the Open option to open the side-panel view. On the top of the side-panel view, make sure the Recurring Task tab is selected to open the options. Once in the options, select the start date, how often you want the task to repeat, and when you want the recurrence to start and end. When you have finished selecting the options, click save, and the recurring items or subitems will be created in your monday.com boards automatically. See image for the order of steps on how to create a recurring task. Make sure to have the dates in chronological order in the date column. To do this, click on the arrow circle at the top of the column. When it is activated, it will show blue, meaning the dates will now be in chronological order.
Creating recurring subitems
In order to create a recurring subitem, you must install the app again in the side panel view of the subitem. You only have to do this once with a subitem, and then the app will install itself in all existing and future subitems automatically. You can add the Recurring Tasks item view to your subitem by clicking on the + symbol at the top right of the side-panel view, then selecting Apps. After adding the app, you will now see Recurring Tasks in the side panel view’s tabs of your subitem. You can now create a recurring subitem the same way you create a recurring item.
Editing an individual recurring task
Each recurring item or subitem is a native monday.com item so you can see it in your dashboards, reports and timelines. This also means you can edit each recurring task individually as well. You can change the status, add comments and attachments or delete it.
Filtering recurring tasks
If you have many recurring tasks overcrowding your boards, you can filter your recurring tasks like any other native monday.com item. In order to do so, click on the filter icon on the top and then select Switch to advance filters. In advance filters, select the date as the item column; in the 3rd box, select the desired timeline to filter.
Scheduling recurring tasks
When creating a recurring task, you can specify how many recurrences to create by setting up the start date in the board and selecting the end date or the number of repetitions required. After clicking save, your recurring tasks will show on the board.
When creating a recurring task, select a start date in the drop-down calendar. This assigned date will be considered the start date of the recurring tasks. The selected start date will become the date of the first item of the recurring task batch.
Creating complex recurring patterns
When creating a recurring task, you can select different options on how you want the task to repeat to create a specific recurring task pattern.
Setting a task bi-weekly (eg. Monday & Thursday)
- Open the item view of the task you want to make recurrent.
- Locate the "start date" and enter the desired start date for the task,
eg. check that the DATE in the Due date column in on MONDAY
- Look for the "repeats every" section.
- In the first numeric field, enter the number "1" to indicate the task should repeat only once every week.
- In the second dropdown field, select the option of ¨week, on [day]¨
eg. "week, on Monday”.
Repeat the same exact steps for the selection of the 2nd day (eg. Thursday)
