"End of the Month" Bug for Due Dates and Repeating

rjp1958 says:

Love this product, I have been using it for years and this is the first time it's operated in the way I didn't expect.

I need to set a reoccurring reminder to pay my rent at the end of the month. Looking at the date formats available to me there is a "Pay Rent at End of Month" option!

When I set Repeat to "every 1 month" it doesn't repeat at the end of the month, it jumps to the next date at the end of a month that has the same number of days it was originally created in.

I created it originally for January with a due date of "End of month" and repetition of "Every 1 month".

When I complete the task, it doesn't jump to a due date with Feb 28th like it should, but to March 31st. Then again to May 31st and so on through all the months with 31 days in it.

Just thought I'd let you know!

Hi rjp1958,
We don't currently support an "end of the month" repeat interval. The help document you posted is for due date formats only.

Depending on your requirements, you may want to try repeating the task each month on the 28th, or each month on the 1st to ensure that it repeats correctly. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

Another, clumsy, workaround is to have a 1/31 task repeating annually, a 2/28 task repeating annually, a 3/31 task repeating annually, etc. How you handle leap years is up to you. Not ideal, but does the trick.
