Ability to choose sections for recurring tasks hack in My Tasks

@Emily_Roman - Thanks for adding the “recurring tasks in last section” hack, though a few of us have been running into issues with this solution due to it simply just adding it to the “last section” instead of letting us actually select a section.

This is definitely a good step in the right direction, but it’s a bit frustrating that it’s just “the last column” because here’s the columns that my team uses in My Tasks:

So “the last column” is most definitely not the section that we want the task to move to. Wish we could select the column we’d like it to move them to.

I also can’t use rules to automate this because rules don’t allow you to have “task not complete” as part of the trigger:

So this would work in theory, but I need it to be “Task Not Complete” instead of “Task Marked Complete”.

Are there any plans to allow us to at least select the section we’d like the recurring tasks to auto-move to? Or open up automation to allow us to create a rule (would need the trigger to be “task is not complete” as a trigger to do this.

(This is a follow-up from this thread that was recently closed):

Hi @abass, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback.

I hear you, being able to choose the section that recurring tasks live in would be a nice feature. I’ve gone ahead and moved your post to the #productfeedback category and updated the title slightly, I hope you don’t mind :slight_smile:

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates on this :slight_smile:


Thanks a lot, I missed that one!
