Repeat x number of times isn't working

jstaso Pro says:

Whenever I try having a task repeat a certain number of times and then stop, it just keeps going. I always mark it complete on my iPhone. Is that the reason it's not working?

The syntax you want to use for this is "every [interval] for X times". For example, to repeat every day for 5 times, you would want to use:
every 1 day for 5 times

If you're finding that your tasks repeat forever when they should be stopping after X times, you may want to verify that the repeat property for the task correctly shows "for 5 times".

You can find more information on the repeat intervals that are available here.

Hope that helps!

I found the problem. I had been deleting my completed tasks. When I left them in, the repeating task would end when it should.
