Schedule reoccurring tasks.
Add the ability to schedule tasks every day, every Wednesday, every last Friday of the month etc...
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.
The Planner Team
We have a piece of equipment that needs to be filled every two days. Several people can do it. We just need someone to confirm that it was done and if it wasn't have everyone get a notification it needs to be done. A recurrent task would handle it for us.
When will it be implemented?
If we are gonna start using Teams, this is a must for planning schedules with monthly deadlines to up to date. Super beneficial. Hope you can resolve the issue soon.

This can be done easily if you have MS Flows.
James Greene commented
Hurry it up ;) I'll build it for you!
This is a critical feature that would make planner a significantly more robust product.
Seriously thinking of moving away from Microsoft Teams due to not having this!

If recurring tasks aren't going to be supported for some time, the ability to copy all tasks in a given bucket or create a template with many tasks already included, would be a great help.
On July 10, 2018 ADMIN said - "We reference and point to our UserVoice forum constantly!" Really?????? How many times does the question "When can we expect an update?" or "When will this feature be available?" have to be asked before a response is given???

Please update on status. I'd like to use this software, but without an ETA on recurring tasks, I can't tell if it will actually be useful to my team
Admin, please can you update everyone?? It's been a long time since your last update in July! There are a lot frustrated users including myself who really need this basic function.
Really A MS Team Calendar isn't automatic and Planner doens't have recurring tasks? Wow.
Recurring task would be a useful enhancement.
This has been an issue with Planner since 2015....really? Why is adding a simple feature taking THREE YEARS to implement !?!?!? Oh wait, this is Microsoft...never mind.
Hi. I'm a TRELLO user and would like to move to Planner as soon as this facture would be available. This is a MUST for our organization

Planner will NOT work for us for project management if recurring tasks can't be created.

If you are able to offer this feature in planner our organization will definitely implement it.
Hope this can happen soon!
I am a utility-scale solar/wind power plant asset manager for a multi-billion dollar private equity fund. If this feature isn't implemented in the next 30 days, we are going forward with purchasing asset management software and doing away with Planner.
I personally enjoy using this platform and see the potential in it. I am rooting for you to get er done. Cheers!
I work at a transition center for young adults who are struggling to get on their feet, and our team recently made the switch to using Microsoft 365. I have a number of recurring responsibilities daily, weekly, and monthly that I would love to not have to add manually into Planner, including:
Keeping the weekly shopping list for groceries and other supplies
Weekly cleaning checklists
Creating and sending monthly newsletters to our supporters
Weekly lesson plans for classes I teach
So glad you guys are working on this feature!! Any news on a possible release date yet?
This is the basic feature of calendar and should be implemented ASAP.
