Recurrence in Tasks, Events in Calendar application
Some projects are a one shot deal, but some projects are on going and I have Tasks that recur on a regular schedule.
I would love to be able to schedule a recurring task rather than have to manually reschedule it every week, two weeks, or month.
It is launched now.
Update: We posted the latest tweaks here – https://blog.freedcamp.com/2018/06/12/changes-recurrent-tasks-based-feedback/
I agree that when creating a recurrence, the UI should ask how recurrences will be showed. For daily recurrences someone would probably dislike having the calendar and task list fulfilled with identical entries. Often, a recurrence for a daily task is significative only if you already completed the previous one, so it's unuseful to have hundreds of entries of the same tasks if I still haven't completed the first ones.
But, as you proposed, it should be the user's choice.
This feature would be strategic when comparing Freedcamp to other similar tools!
Thank you for your efforts.
A falta das tarefas recorrentes é uma grande falha,
Somos obrigados a utilizar runrun.it, todoist, evernote...para ter essa função disponível
freedcamp is a great PMS. task-recurrence feature is a big item lacking. we hope it will be implemented soon. thanks.
Shopping around for a good project/task mgmt platform. Recurring tasks should be a basic. Agree with a prior post, surprised this has not been addressed for almost 2 years now.
@Steve - with this approach if you have a recurring task which is due each Saturday and you haven't completed it last week and it is Friday - you will never another one due tomorrow?
I know GCalendar is not a project management system but I think it shows you all the occurrences.
May be we should show:
- all overdue and not completed recurrent tasks
- all past completed (you can filter them out as usual to hide)
- next due date in the future one
So it is not when you completed task we show next occurrence but once TODAY marker passes due date for last recurrent task due date (regardless of it's completion state).
No need to recreate the wheel here.... pretty much every one who does recurring tasks and events offers the same options.
Set task recurrence to occur every __ [ ] Days [ ] Weeks [ ] Months [ ] Years (radio buttons)
Starts on: xx/xx/xxxx (date picker)
Ends: [ ] Never [ ] After __ times [ ] Ends on xx/xx/xxxx (date picker)
Once a task is completed, the system will automatically add the next occurrence into the system. Editing that task should give you the option of changing just that one occurrence or the recurrence schedule (or removing future occurrences).

Do we know when this functionality will be out? This would be a huge help to keeping organized and not having to add reoccurring to-do's or task daily/weekly/monthly. Doing this with google calendar will not help.
I have following note from one of our users: "Ideally in that scenario I would love to have the option to say when it appears in the list (two weeks out, 5 days out, etc) and then it will automatically have the due date on it."
If in events we can show each future recurrence as GCalendar does but showing all recurrences in tasks will create a huge list in Tasks.
I think we shall ask when the first recurrent task is created when to show next recurrence of it:
- when this task is completed
- X days before its due date
- show all recurrences
Please let me know what you think.
Yes, this would be very helpful!
Indeed - this is a pretty important feature to have! Looking forward to this being implemented.
Have you not added recurring tasks yet? Wow, that's pretty limiting.
I think this is such a basic necessity, that i am surprised this suggestion has been up for over 1,5 year already. Please add it......
recurring task is a must-to-have feature will bring freedcamp a great tools for marketers.
i think google calendar interface will be useful for these.
I had a similar request for recurring ToDo's. Has this been fixed?? Pls let me know if this has been done..
I would also like to see recurring tasks implemented as soon as possible.

Urgh yes this would also be super useful! Just going through the ideas for freedcamp and placing some votes and this has crossed my mind!

Would love this on Tasks. As a consultant, I often have to send recurring reports. If I could get a reminder each week / month that I need to do it, it'd be awesome.
Looking forward to seeing this functionality soon.
Sorry. Not done yet. On top of our list now.
Just wondering if there has been any movement on this request? Would love to see this implemented in Freedcamp as it would save me having to re-enter to-dos on a daily/weekly/monthly etc basis.
