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!

I absolutely love this idea. My employees are constantly updating due dates and this fixes that.
Tim Buntain commented
Recurring tasks are a must for any serious planning tool!
Laura Chapman commented
To make this app truly useful, would be key to allow recurring tasks and tasks sets that repeat across multiple projects.
Angie Harrison commented
this is a must!!!
A must have!

Yes is a basic feature that I will need - as there are many tasks are repeatable in my organization. However, please do not stop at this feature alone. there should be a customizable / editable table that you can associate each of the resource names with tasks that roll-up into the buckets, task categories, resource types and resource hours for each task - and an export feature to html page, ms excel, ms project.
agree, must have feature for us to use planner

Must have feature!
Yes Please, or the ability to copy a plan and or bucket! We have month-end, year-end, quarterly lists of tasks that would be perfect for Planner, but the hassle of recreating the plan makes adoption unlikely!
Oscar Gallazzi commented
Please add this feature! i think it's a MUST HAVE feature in order to plan correctly!
wow, can't believe this was not one of the first features to include....won't be able to utilize planner until tasks can be recurring

I have recurring tasks on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis. This would be a great option to have
Would like to use this for month end finance tasks so recurring would be helpful.
Love this idea. I just added several reporting tasks that happen at different times each month and it would be helpful to have them show up regularly. I don't want to see a year's worth but you could give the user the option of how many out to show, such as just the current month or three tasks out out or once complete then the next one appears.
Not sure why anyone would leave this feature out! Like most others, useless without this feature.
Would make this an even easier product to use and sell
Yes agreed! I have daily, weekly, biweekly, & monthly tasks that I would like have pop up on a specific board ("Doing Today") each day as they are scheduled. This would be a huge help!
would be most useful to have reoccurring tasks implemented within the planner.
