Reflecting on Recurring Tasks: year one

Can you believe it's been just over a whole year since we launched Recurring Tasks for Time flies when you're busy getting things done!

And what a year it was! Since launching last April, we've been on a mission to develop Recurring Tasks with the aim of empowering teams to work smarter, not harder using From project management to task tracking, our goal has been to craft an app that enables you to work more efficiently and enhances workflow productivity.

Recurring Tasks' first year saw us transition from a closed beta phase to a full-market version of our app, the creation of new features and customisations thanks to feedback from our fantastic app users and the community, and win the award for '2023’s Most Installed App' from the marketplace.

We're immensely proud of what we were able to achieve in Recurring Tasks' first year. As we celebrate this exciting milestone, we want to extend our sincere thanks to our wonderful app users. Your feedback, ideas, and support over the last year have been instrumental in shaping the continuing evolution of Recurring Tasks, and we're committed to continuing to innovate and improve to build the best possible app for you.

With that in mind, we're rolling into year two in style, as we unveil our newest feature, Automatic Scheduling!

What is Automatic Scheduling?

You asked; we listened!

We know this is something many in the community have been asking for for a while now. Good news, the wait is over!

Recurring Tasks' new Automatic Scheduling feature makes it easier than ever to create recurring tasks while still maintaining a neat and tidy board.

You have complete control of when your tasks appear on your board, by choosing whether they're created the day before they're due or on the day itself! Say goodbye to unnecessary clutter and hello to a more organised workflow thanks to Automatic Scheduling!

Elevate your productivity, flexibility, and organisation with Automatic Scheduling

With Automatic Scheduling, you can enjoy:

1. Enhanced board organisation: With Automatic Scheduling, recurring tasks are created individually and automatically, reducing the clutter of repetitive items on your board. This results in a more organised workspace, making it easier to locate tasks without the need for constant filtering.
2. Greater flexibility in your schedule: Using Automatic Scheduling, you can pause any recurring task schedule at any time, allowing you to adapt to changing priorities without disrupting your workflow. Whether you need to temporarily halt a schedule or create a new one with a different frequency, you can easily activate or deactivate schedules as required, ensuring seamless task management.
3. Boost productivity and minimise distractions: By maintaining a well-organised board, you can prioritise tasks and allocate your time and resources more efficiently. In doing so, you'll find it easier to minimise distractions and ensure that you can focus on important tasks without being overwhelmed by board clutter. As a result, you'll be able to boost your productivity and accomplish more in less time.

Let's take a look at Automatic Scheduling in action!

How to get started with Automatic Scheduling

  1. Select either the 'On the due date' option or the '1 day before' option.
  2. Remember, if you select '1 day before', the tasks will create themselves 1 day before the selected dates.
  3. Once you have selected the automatic schedule, click 'Save.' The tasks will then begin creating themselves based on the dates you have selected.
  4. You'll also see a prompt box showing your selected settings. This way, you never lose track of active, automatically-scheduled tasks.
