Setting Up Recurring Tasks

After you've created a new task or opened an existing one, click the Recurrence button.

Click the Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly option button to set the recurrence pattern.

The options for the recurrence pattern vary depending on your selection in step 2. Make your selections accordingly.

INTRODUCTION

If you routinely perform a certain task, such as backing up your computer once a week, you can set it up once as a recurring task rather than creating the same task over and over again for each occurrence. You can start by creating a new task or by setting the recurrence for an existing task.


TIP

Creating a New Task

To schedule a new recurring task, open the Actions menu and select New Recurring Task. The Task Recurrence dialog box opens; fill it out as described in this task. Then, in the Tasks window, add the details for the actual task.


Specify the range of recurrence—that is, over what period of time the recurring appointment will occur.

Click OK.

The Tasks window's date and time information lists the recurrence details you entered; click Save and Close.

The Tasks list displays a special icon for recurring tasks.
