Schedule reoccurring tasks.
Add the ability to schedule tasks every day, every Wednesday, every last Friday of the month etc...
Thank you for your feedback on recurring tasks.
We’ve completed our initial designs (thanks a lot to your scenarios/details!) and are waiting for this to move it’s way up our backlog. We should have a scheduling update in November when work on three BIG initiatives wraps up. Stay tuned!

What would be really really cool would be to plug the schedule ability into IOT for OPC driven events and / or an on premise SQL connection so that when a piece of machinery in the factory has run for "n" hours a maintenance task is created automatically. Currently doing this using Power Flow for weekly events which works very nicely but proper condition based scheduling would be really nice. Love planner deployed it through out our organisation when in Beta mode..
Can I count on recurring tasks to be active this November (2019)? We will consider purchasing MS Planner in mass this month, if you tell me yes.
this has been going on for at least 3 years. how long does it take to add recurring tasks to a program???? at least have the ability to add a program to microsoft teams that does do recurring tasks if you can't add it to planner. at this point, i'm debating on dropping ms teams and most of ms biz to find something that doesn't make me go to 10 programs to automate and simplify my office and projects. jeez, people--i really thought ms would be so much more robust than it is. sigh. i am still dreading going through all the guides/tutorials to figure out how to make my office management easier and then this... disappointing to say the least.

This would really simplify the work with re-occuring things. Our workaround at the moment is using To-Do with shred lists. Not a good solution.

This would make Planner perect for our organization. I work in event plannig and right now it's complicated when I create task that is repeating every two weeks. Cause we need to use Flow to synch Planner with Google Calendar and then from there change the dates. The other way would be to copy the same task 20 times and then change the date on each one. But it takes time and then the board becomes overwhelmed.
Please add this to Planner. We have weekly tasks that are a pain to enter every week. An option to make it recurring like the Outlook Calendar already uses.
Nice idea. But can you work on preventing / recovering deleted tasks instead
Our firm is using Asana for repeated tasks/ projects and would like to switch to planner.
Can we have an update? More or less when can we expect to have this feature?
A planner without reoccurring tasks is practically useless for our security team. The user-voice vote requesting this feature is high and it's not even scheduled. Can the team please explain why?
Ridiculous that reoccurring tasks are not active in Planner.

Any update on this?

So when should we expect this to come into effect @Microsoft?
NOBODY IS LISTENING....
Agree functionality should be added

I'm trying to utilize Microsoft planner for my team. The inability to create recurring tasks is forcing us to consider other planning tools. This is a major painpoint, it would be great if this functionality was added.
Currently using Microsoft Flow to create these and it is a major pain-point for our staff as Flow is not general user friendly.

This is critical to making this tool useful in a working environment..... can we have some idea of when it might be planned for?
