Set Recurring Task Due Date as the nth Occurrence of a Day of Week

For example, set the due date to be the last Thursday of the month; or the second Monday, or first Friday, etc. I personally have a weekly task that I complete every Thursday, but before each next month arrives, I have a monthly task that is directly related to and a part of this weekly task.

tl;dr:

  • Task B must be completed on the same day as the last Task A of the month and both tasks are closely related;

  • I complete Task A every Thursday;

  • I complete Task B at the end of each month whenever the last occurrence of A occurs in that month.


Feature request: Additional options for recurring task scheduling
#2

Yes, please! :frowning: I was disappointed to search the forums for this feature and find that people were requesting it 2 years ago. I need the ability to set a “last friday of the month” recurring reminder desperately. I hate having to manage tasks between Asana AND Outlook to make sure I stay on top of everything.

3 years ago, even. Sheesh. Seems pretty hopeless at this point :confused:

(Also apologies for the Nic Cage cat – I’ve just realized it’s now a public avatar and not just an in-joke with my team :joy:)

I would like the ability to set recurring tasks to happen in intervals such as “every 3rd Sunday” or “every second Saturday”.


#5

We also really need this feature for our meetings and other events that occur regularly on a specific day of the week.

Agreed! Especially about tasks that are closely related - there needs to be a better way of scheduling related tasks. Currently there are dependencies, but it’s less of a dependency feature as a trigger feature. Trigger Task B to begin X days after Task A, every time it recurs (or is used in a template).
