I have a number of tasks that I want to repeat each month. In my past experience with RTM recurring events, as long as I set my repeat interval to 'every...' as opposed to 'after...', then my task list automatically generates both the initial occurrence of the event AND the next occurrence. As an example, if I set the task to repeat 'every month' starting January 1, then that task will show up on my task list both on January 1 and on February 1.
With all of that said, for some reason this no longer appears to be the case for me. Instead, when I create the event it only creates the initial one and no others. The reason this is a problem is that what's happening now as a result is that the future occurrences are subject to any postponing that occurs. So, if I don't get to the initial task on January 1 and instead postpone it to, and ultimately complete it on, January 2, the next event then pops up in my list for February 2, which is not what I want.
I know that this functionality is what would be expected with tasks that I set with a repeat interval of 'after...' but I have checked numerous times and can confirm that mine are properly set to 'every...'. I know I can also work around this by using a repeat interval of 'every month on the 1st' or something similar, but I want to first understand why this core functionality doesn't appear to be working.
