Just wondering the only option for the “periodically” repeat option is days, and those days are limited to 30.
I use Todoist for personal tasks, and you can set the repeat-only-after-completion period to days, weeks, months, years—whatever (you do this using the “!” function to differentiate it from normal tasks, e.g., “every! 2 years.”)
As you have mentioned, the current options to set a task to repeat are daily, weekly, periodically, monthly and yearly. You can learn a few quick tips in the following guide article:

It would be fantastic if there was an option to say “the Nth day of the week every month” for example, the second tuesday of every month. I have many things I set to do monthly, but I can’t do them during the week, so I want to get them done on the first Saturday of the month.
I checked out many different task management software and Asana is pretty much the only one which has functionality which create a recurring task X days after completion (except off-line solutions such as Emacs org-mode), which is great.
However, it currently only allow 30 days interval, and I wish it supports longer intervals - for many mundane tasks such as filter replacements, usually I need intervals to be 60-90 days.
Supporting intervals up to 365 days would be great.
In the long ru…
We use repeating tasks for many things. Some of themwe want the subtasks to repeat, but others we do not, such as meetings. If a meeting tasks repeats, it includes the subtasks which are only relevant to the previous meeting and not the new meeting being automatically created. This forces us to either create meeting task manually or to use repeat to create automatically, then remove the task from the newly created meeting. Both are extra steps in workflow.

@Noah_Scanlan and thank you for taking time to share your feedback with us!
We usually don’t recommend providing more than 1 suggestion on the same thread since it’s difficult for us to follow-up and for users to vote. I was able to find two existing threads in the Forum requesting the options you have mentioned here. In order to consolidate votes would recommend you to upvote and comment on these threads.
Have a great weekend
@RSDA and let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!
