Chapter 5. Creating a Task List > Using Recurring Tasks

Using Recurring Tasks

If you have one or more tasks that need to be repeated regularly during the life of the project, you can enter them as recurring tasks. For example, you might want to schedule weekly project status meetings every Monday from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Other examples could be monthly inspections or bi-weekly equipment maintenance.

Tip

Recurring tasks are a great way to capture time and effort on a project that is not specifically tied to work-related tasks. Since they occur at set intervals that you configure, they don't have to be linked to other tasks within the project. By definition, recurring tasks are constrained to the schedule and are not responsible to drive other task relationships. Status meetings are the most common use of this feature of the software, but other reasons include quality reviews, risk assessment, and scope change review meetings.
