How do I set a Monday reminder to send an email for a meeting that occurs the 2nd Friday of every month when Monday is sometimes the 1st Monday and sometimes the 2nd Monday of the month?

Hi jmjclark,
It sounds like you may want to have a task due on the 2nd Friday, and then to add a start date and/or reminder to the task for 4 days prior.

That should always be indexed based on the correct Monday prior then.

Let us know if we can ever help with anything else!

Thanks...but how do I do that? Sorry if I'm dense, but when I click on start date, I'm only given a calendar. I am using the free version, if that is what makes the difference.

Hi jmjclark,
Sorry, I should have linked to some specifics!

You can add a start date when adding a task (with Smart Add) or editing a task.

You can set reminders generally to send based on the start date, and/or you can add individual reminders to tasks based on the start/due dates and times.

You can use the calendar picker to select a date+time, but you can also type a custom date/time if you prefer using a freeform date format.

We hope this helps, but keep us posted on what you find!
