You can use the repetitive tasks to automate the scheduling of frequent tasks in Runrun.it without having to create one by one. They can only be created from a scheduled task. That is, you cannot turn a common or an ongoing task into repetitive.
To do this, click on the calendar icon below the description of the task, then on "Schedule" and "Repeat". When scheduling a task, the field "Repeat" will become editable. Runrun.it allows to set repetition to several frequencies, as we see below.
That means that the task scheduling is done only once, it will not be repeated automatically.
To repeat the task every X days.
For tasks that shall be repeated daily, from Monday to Friday.
You choose how often, in number of weeks, the task will be repeated, and on the days of the week it is scheduled.
Here you can make the task repeat either on a specific day of the month or on the first, second etc. weekday of the month.
Finally, you can choose to repeat the task always on the same day of a particular month or on the first, second etc. day of a month.
For all frequencies, you can choose an end:
- After X occurrences;
- On a certain date.
IMPORTANT: The scheduling of the next task will be set by Runrun.it only after the user deliver the current scheduled task or delete it.
