- Create recurring task:
To create a recurring task open "new task" form & use the 'full task form' tab to open additional options,
unroll 'more' menu – you can set 'repeat task' parameters there:
A recurring task can be created from the 'Task templates' section too: go to 'My Tasks' page > create from task template > view all tasks templates > add template.
Fill in the required fields: tasks name, responsible person, description, etc. Use the option 'Repeat task every' to set the frequency of repetition (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly).
Please note that when you create a task with a 'repeat task' option , it will be automatically turned into the task template. The template is available to the task creator only.
- Change a recurring task:
Go to 'Tasks templates', open the template (use 'edit' option), make the necessary changes and click 'Save'. New tasks generated by the edited task template will be created with these changes.

To delete the recurring task you need to edit this recurring task’s template: change the 'repeat task' parameters or delete the template if necessary. Please note that if you want to delete the recurring tasks completely - you may need to remove the tasks generated by the recurring task template manually as well, because the tasks created by the recurring task template won’t be deleted together with this template.
