Schedule reoccurring tasks.
Add the ability to schedule tasks every day, every Wednesday, every last Friday of the month etc...
Hello! Since this is one of our top asks from users (and has been for quite a while), we wanted to provide a quick update here. As mentioned in our last update, our team has been heads down shipping some recent integrations, such as the Tasks app in teams and Tasks in Docs (both of which have initial versions rolling out now!).
Recurring tasks (and the other top UserVoice asks) are still high on our backlog. I’ll provide updates here as this feature gets closer to being shipped! We also may use this forum to reach out to you, our engaged users, with design questions we have—so stay tuned if you’d like to help us bring you the best version of recurring tasks!
In the meantime, it’s great to see so much active engagement here. We continue to iterate on our initial designs as we get more feedback from users, so keep it coming!

How is this still not a thing?! Stop reinventing the wheel and nerfing existing tech and fix the existing mess
without this functionality the application is useless

Why hasn't been this simple feature implemented yet?
Kevin Peters commented
Why is this taking so long? Its been planned for years now. Can we please get an update on the status of this.

It's such an essential feature, what is the explanation, why is this feature basically not in a task managing program? Why did you leave it out of it when it was released?
Please at least move it to the backlog so we can start to see a foreseeable future where we can use this shouldn't-be-that-complicated-to-implement feature (already exist in To Do)
Is this done yet?!

Need the Recurring tasks capacities.
Also need the capability to add reminders for subtasks

It's now 2021 - we should have this already. C'mon man!!
Morten Ellegaard commented
Really wish it by now was possible to create recurring tasks, so I didn't had to have another tool for that...
How is this simple feature available in ToDo but not Planner?
Michel Gebbinck commented
Long overdue feature....
As a workaround, you could indeed use https://firstname.lastname@example.org/creating-recurring-tasks-in-microsoft-planner-using-microsoft-flow-f605814734df or manually copy every month or so a Plan by using the Planner website https://tasks.office.com/
C'mon, MS! We've been waiting for a long time! Our lives e future depend on that!

MS team it's very disappointing that this feature not released yet.
Guys SB work around solution that can help.
We need this NOW or users will leave for Asana or something else. Very sad that the second most requested feature has not had a response for a year and a half!!

Last update on a recognized top ask August 2019? Really? If you want to be taken seriously, please at least update your "top asks" once a year.
I'm so puzzled why this is not implemented yet. It is such a basic need.
It is a little crazy that this is still not implemented by MS. Can you please provide an update. Last post was 18 months ago and this request was posted in 2016

Looking forward to this needed feature as well. Can we have another update?
Definitely recurring tasks is a necessary function, hope it's implemented soon.
