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!

Hello, this is a quite urgent upgrade that needs to be done as any departments managers that have recurring tasks needs a dashboard to follow recurring tasks, even more with all the teleworking.
Don't forget that clerk task that are done can combine and make a new tasks between the manager and the finance director without having the director to have all the taskls of the clercks. there is a cascade often that would be nice as an optin. (example in accounting, clerks needs to reconcile GLs , that the manager needs to verify and build Financials statement that Finance director needs to reviews and approved, then publish it, so the CFO can tracks if it's published)
Finalizing this rapidly will help Microsoft to secure revenues from office365 with all the accounting department around the world that will use this , instead of using another software to track these tasks.
PLEASE PUT A TEAM ON THIS FOR A MONTH !!! IT'S WORTH IT !

Hi, any update on this?
I was hoping this was an old thread. Seriously, I can't believe this isn't already available.

Ability to add recurring tasks for MS Planner would be an essential feature. Please implement ASAP.

Adding my support to the already 1700+ comments encouraging this.
They need a recurring task to drop in to user voice once a week.

"High on our Backlog" for over a year yet still not available??
Rick Sconberg commented
Really need this to use planner effectively
Yeah, we need this too. It seems backward to create a personal task list in To Do and then share it with team members, rather than create the list where it should be - in the team. I also worry what happens to the lists I have created in To Do should I leave the company. So, I will wait until this feature is also available in Planner.
I can do this in Microsoft To Do, but I can't in Planner. Why?
i wonder if this still in backlog!?. Make a task recurring is one of the fundamental feature for a task and it's ridiculous this is not done in production. Moreover it's utter ridiculous it's not done in years after productions.

Planner is useless without recurring tasks
Jon Bobsten commented
Kind of ridiculous that this has been a high priority in the backlog for over a year now! It is difficult to fully migrate when punitive capabilities are still amiss!

Adding in recurring Tasks in Planner is an absolute must for My Team and also for many in our Business. Would really appreciate being able to have reoccurring feature, the same way a personal Task can be created in Outlook.

This is an essential feature, please add it soon!
Another vote for reoccurring tasks! cant believe this wasn't part of MVP to begin with!
Dear Planner Team, I am very disgruntled. ** crosses arms, downfaced, humph. **
