New: Repeating tasks

We all have tasks we need to remember on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

If you’re an elder, maybe you have a group of members you’re responsible for caring for on a regular basis — praying for them weekly, calling them monthly, meeting with them quarterly.

If you’re a facilities manager, maybe you need to check communion supplies every month, inventory chairs every quarter, and replace the air filters every 6 months.

If you’re an administrator, maybe you finalize the announcements every Tuesday, update the website every other week, and run reports on the first Monday of every month.

With repeating tasks, you can set any task to repeat on the schedule of your choosing: daily, weekly, every two weeks, monthly, every 3 months, every 6 months, or annually.

After you select a schedule, you’ll see some additional options for repeating tasks. These defaults enable you to edit the current copy of a task without affecting future copies. For example…

  • A task is typically assigned to you, but you’re on vacation this week. If you’re the default assignee, you can reassign this week’s task to another team member but next week’s task will still be assigned to you! You can also choose whether you want the assignee to be notified when the next copy of the task is ready.
  • You want a task to appear in your list every Monday but it isn’t due until Wednesday. You can set your task to repeat weekly on Monday and set the due date for two days after the task is created!
  • Every month, you need to check in with your small group leaders. There are three questions you ask every month, but there are often additional questions specific to the current sermon series or season. Put your regular questions into the default description and then add, remove, or edit them each month when your next task is created!

When you complete the current copy of a repeating task, the next copy will show in the upcoming section of your list. You can hide this section and focus only on the tasks that need your attention today — or you can work ahead and complete the next copy early.
