    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.

    Cheers,

        Interesting that such feature, where you just need to make a task recurring (it's not like you need to implement a whole Planner, you already have Planner, again), takes so long to implement -- and it still says "PLANNED".

        It would be fantastic for business planning activities for an organisation, there would be massive potential to link this with outlook reoccuring activities or done in Planner and seen in outlook for planning.

        Unfortunately Planner without recurring tasks is a huge oversight - and really takes away ability to convince people to use it

        Our organisation is decommissioning an old bespoke operations checklist system running Win2003 and there are no plans for a replacement. We need recurring tasks in MS Teams before February 2019. Thanks

        Every Wednesday our team needs to compile a presentation. There are multiple inputs from various working groups and plan to use Teams to track this weekly process and stay organized.

        Is there any update on this? We are being advised to switch to Asana just on the basis we cannot automate recurring tasks for our reception and clinicians.

        I work in a church and as well as the weekly, monthly etc. recurring tasks we have an annual pattern of events and services. It would be great to be able to create, review and schedule plans that can be improved year on year and be ready to do when they are needed.
        Thanks

        Will the recurring option allow the organizer to assign different people to each task?

        When's this coming online? Is there anything you can do to prevent us from having to go back to Trello?

        Hey guys, I work for a Retail company and we want to use recurring tasks in Planner to maintain Purchase Orders across different brands. Cheers

        Also interested in schedule update on this. It's the missing link that prevents me from managing related activities in Planner (vs an Access database that we'd really like to retire).
