    Thank you all for your feedback and votes on recurring tasks!

    Our team is still in the design phase of this feature, but it’s on our roadmap and something we’re looking forward to bringing to life in Planner.

    The information you’ve provided on how you would utilize recurring tasks has been extremely helpful. We reference and point to our UserVoice forum constantly! If you haven’t already, comment below to let us know how you would like to use recurring tasks.

        Hi team, any update on this so far? The last update was nearly a year ago, and this is one of the staples of managing a workload effectively.

        Dear Planner Team, I just started using planner and like all the possibilities it is providing. A feature to create templates for tasks would be a great nice to have though. Many Tasks e.g. 'preparing an event', 'checking cv's', … I have to do several times during a year. It would be great, if I could save a certain Task with its checklist, description and attachment as a template and then, when I add a new Task have the Option to either create it completly new or select from one of my templates. Best regards!

        Please, recurring options to include several weekdays to choose from and change on going forward base for season/holiday adjustments, like regular smartphone alarms

        Any update on this? 8 months ago it was in the works? Seems like user feedback is not high priority.

        No update, no reoccurring tasks in 3 years? Seem like Planner will be replaced before this is added such a pity.

        Can we get an update on this? We have a lot of users that can't use planner because this feature is missing.

        Seems the developers don't give a **** what people want/need...

      • J Nash commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Seriously. You shouldn't even have released this without recurring task functionality. That's not a small thing.
        Sometimes I start thinking that Microsoft isn't the glitchy, poorly planned product that it used to be, but then something like this is exposed.
        This is a huge fail.

        Clearly this is still one of the most wanted features in Planner. Comments almost every day wanting updates! COME ON MICROSOFT!

        Can you stop designing and go to the Calendar team or the To Do team and copy the code from them! We have been waiting for 3+ years for this. This is Absurd. What are you designing. why do you need to design. You colleagues have figure this out since OUTLOOK 1997!

        Need the ability to use MS Planner to set and manage recurring tasks for project team members.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        No updates in six months - surely you can at least let people know what is going on...

        We have created a workaround for this by using Flow to create a recurring event that creates an event in Planner.
        It sounds crazy, but in Flow you're unable to create a single event - they HAVE TO BE recurring!
        Using Flow solved our issue with this - see instructions here -> https://medium.com/@rob.quatela/creating-recurring-tasks-in-microsoft-planner-using-microsoft-flow-f605814734df

        It says you're in the design phase, but this idea is 3 years old. When is it getting out of the design phase and being released?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        How was this feature not in the initial release and how has it taken over 3 years to get it? Absolute joke.

      • Karin Fassbind commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We need to be able to plan our reoccuring tasks by calendar week (e.g. this task has to be done every year in calendar week 5).

      • Michael Brissenden commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Planner integration within Teams is an easy way to adopt the product for us but having the ability to have a reoccurring task is critical. We are excited to see this feature to be released hopefully in the near future so we can roll out to our client base.
