Repeat every year the 3rd Saturday of September

gioele Pro says:

Is it possible to set a task to repeat yearly on a certain mobile date, for example the "3rd Saturday of September"?

(The 3rd Saturday of September is the Software Freedom Day, BTW.)

Remember the Milk could not deal with this kind of dates in 2006 (see https://www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/help/1273/ ) maybe it can now in 2014.

Hi gioele,
It's not currently possible to specific the specific day of a specific month, sorry.

The best workaround right now would be to set the repeat to every year, and then to set the specific instance's due date from there.

Hope this helps a bit!

I am actually using this myself and it seems to work fine. I copied and pasted this from one of my tasks:

every year on the 3rd Thursday in September

I wasn't able to get it to work and then I discovered that the syntax is very specific, it can't say:

every year on the 3rd Thursday "OF" September

You have to use "IN" Septemeber!

Hope this helps!
