    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,

        I am astonished, astonished I say, that Planner doesn't allow for recurring tasks. Currently what we have here is a really complex post-it.

        I work in operations. Today we are not using Planner, but I think recurring task is the main feature Planner needs to become our target system in activity organizing

        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.

        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 is a critical feature that would make planner a significantly more robust product.

        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.
