Schedule a task on multiple dates

mmasroorali says:
Is it possible to schedule a task on multiple dates? The dates do not have any repeat pattern and quite random.

I know that I can create a task, duplicate it and then change the date of the second one, and so on. But is it possible to schedule it on multiple dates in one go?

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Hi mmasroorali,
There's no way to schedule multiple due dates, or to set due dates for one task all at once, to most directly answer your question; sorry.

Aside from duplicating the task and going from there, you can also set a repeat, e.g. "after 1 day": after you complete your task, the next one will be generated, and at that point you can change the due date on the next task.

Hope that helps!

I am already using the `after' feature. But as I have pointed out, the task I am trying to schedule on multiple dates are completely random, without any repeat property. You need to enter, say, five dates, all without any relationship among them.

You could set up an Excel file with say 5 lines, having the due date as a separate field and then concatenate the lines and send the whole thing to RTM using the bulk import adress:

This in combination with the smart add syntax should have you going in no time!
