End Dates for Recurring Tasks

I’ve seen this mentioned here and there but not as clearly as what I’m looking for. Our team really needs an End Date feature when setting up a recurring task. For example, if the task is “Set up Room B104” for an event that we know occurs until February 28th, we’d like to have an option in the “Set to Repeat” section that would have it end on February 28th so we don’t have to manually delete the task. This would help us in a variety of ways, one of which being (with the example I gave) that B104 wouldn’t be set up unnecessarily past its usage. I imagine others have a similar need.

It would be great to be able to set either an date for tasks to stop recurring or for them to stop after a certain number of recurrences

@Simon_McCloskey,

We already have a #productfeedback thread on this topic, so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with this existing thread to consolidate feedback in this topic, hope you don’t mind :slight_smile:

Hi,

I use projects that have several tasks and some are being repeated. For Example:

Task1: First 3 weeks check “xy” daily
Task2: week 4-8 check “xy” weekly
Task3: week 9-12 check “xy” monthly

How do I set up the recurring task in such a way that it stops after X days/weeksor months without having to copy this task as often as I need it. The reason behind it is that I use templates for every project and this task contains different information every time. Ofcourse I could copy this information into the description field but for Taks1 alone this would mean I have to copy it 21 times which would not be smart.

In short I would welcome the option to repeat a task daily, weekly, monthly and stop after X repetitions.

Could you implent this any time soon? Or is there maybe a workaround I have not thought of?

Thanks in advance!

Roy

Hi,

I don’t know any workaround, except having a subtask or something in the description reminding you to stop the recurrence on a given date…

Hi @RVL1984 and thank you for reaching out!

As it stands, there isn’t an option to set an end date when we set a task to repeat, but I’ve gone ahead and move to the #productfeedback category to allow other users to vote for this request!

I’ve slightly edited the title to make it more discoverable to other users. I hope that is OK!

Have a great Thursday!

Does anyone know if this has been added as a feature as I still can’t get this to be done except deleting the task once it’s got to its end date (or removing the recurrence)

I’m trying to do this too - would appreciate this feature getting bumped up as it would be useful to set tracking reminders on the campaigns we’re running.

I would also LOVE this feature. Any news or tricks anyone has come up with?

Surely this feature must exist by now - any update?
