New Feature: Recurring Tasks

Michael Payne | June 7th, 2022

Managing tasks and keeping track of the time needed to execute those tasks is a core feature of Intervals. After initially releasing recurring tasks as a beta feature we are excited to announce the full release of recurring tasks.

Recurring tasks is one of those features that sounds simple at first, but once you dig into the details there are a lot of nuances. When do recurring tasks get created? Do you work on the first recurring task or is it just a template? A sincere thank you to all our beta testers that tried out the feature, submitted bugs, and gave us feedback on how to shape this feature.

Prior to this release the only way to manage recurring tasks was to manually copy or reschedule the task. This update greatly improves your ability to streamline and control your workflow where recurring tasks are needed.
