This article will go over:

How to Create Recurring Tasks

To create a recurring task, first add a new task by clicking on Add Task on the admin dashboard. In the shift creation window, choose the task frequency as 'Recurring task':

Choose the "Start date" of the series and whether it should repeat daily, weekly, or monthly, and at what time it should start. Then, choose when the series should end - on a specific date, or after a number of tasks occurrence.

​You can also choose to be notified when the start time of each task in the series arrives, and choose the due time for the tasks in the series.

How to Edit Recurring Tasks

To edit a recurring task, click on it to open the task information and click 'Edit'. Make the relevant changes, and then click 'Update task'.

Please note: When you edit a recurring task's frequency, you will receive a pop-up warning that by changing its times, you are unlinking it from its existing series. If this is your intention, click 'Unlink task' and the task will no longer be part of the series. If this was not your intention, click 'Cancel' and click out of the window to cancel any changes made to the task.

When you edit a recurring task's details, such as the name or description, you will receive a notice asking if you would like to edit this task only or edit all future tasks in this series. Choose one of the options and click 'Edit task'.

*Recurring tasks is available from the Operations Advanced Plan and above.*
