Thank you all for your feedback and votes!

As an update, this feature is still planned and is on our backlog. It is working it’s way up our backlog, but we haven’t scheduled work for it yet. We will keep you updated and update this thread as soon as we start development!

    Is it still unscheduled or is this something that is about to be released in the current year?

    Include the ability to select the first Monday (or whatever day) of the Month, or the first and third Wednesday of the Month for every month on an ongoing basis. The 1st, 15th, or 30th may be relevant for accounting; however, for facility functionality checks it does not fit the workload need. The option to pick a recurring day of the week, monthly, bi-monthly, semi-annually, etc. is more conducive to establishing a work scheduling pattern than the traditionally calendar-centered approach.

    Wanting to use this feature with MS teams and find out recurring tasks is not an option?? This needs to be added ASAP. Please add this feature to the development road map.

    We honestly can't use this product until this feature is added. Please place this item from "planned" to off the "backlog" and in process. Please start development on this ASAP. Until then... Microsoft Planner just sounds like a good idea and not a good program yet.

    This would be such a major help to me and my team - most our tasks are re-occurring

    Please allow for recurring Planner tasks that go beyond 1 year. Outlook Calendar is limited to only one year, which is hopefully not the direction Planner will take.

    This is an important feature for any planning/task management system! I can't believe that it is not already there.

    This is definitely a critical update. We have just stopped introducing planner into our offices as this key feature is missing. We will continue using Zoho Projects until this matter is resolved.

    I am about to ditch Todoist as everyone here at work uses Microsoft and then found I can't recur tasks. How frustrating. Please please add this functionality as soon as please!

    EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!! We MUST be able to create recurring tasks in Planner that integrate with To-Do !!!

    Please move from backlog to toplog ! I would ask planner to set up a re-occurring reminder for me to send you this feedback daily until it is completed but I can't !
