Start & End Dates - Reoccurring Tasks

Hi
Do Start & End Dates work with reoccurring tasks?

If I set a Task to reoccur with Start & End date does it work? Have update an existing reoccurring task with this and it didn’t seem to work.

Start date doesn't copy when on recurring task is complete

That’s a great question and one I had to test myself to confirm. :grin: Start dates do not carry over to recurring tasks. Only the due date carries to the next recurrence, and the start date will reset to be blank.

If you have feedback or thoughts on how the start date recurrence would be helpful, I’d be happy to pass that along to the team.

Thanks @Kaitie Katie for moving it to Product Feedback was about to do that.

Hi Kaitie, one of my use cases is a task to schedule photoshoots for bird breeding seasons. For example, Great Blue Herons nest from October to March. Every September I create tasks from 9/1 to 9/30 to research locations, make travel arrangements, etc.

It would be great if start dates re-occurred with the end date.

Thanks!
Mike

I just tested it out and it seems like the start date doesn’t logically copy to the next task that’s created from repeating feature :confused:
