Is "Until" Inclusive of End Date?

chris.kimmel says:
Hi All,

If I create a task on Sunday, January 1 that says "repeat every Monday until January 9", will that ultimately create two tasks (on Jan 2 and Jan 9) or just one (on Jan 2)?

More abstractly, is the "repeat every [period] until [end date]" clause inclusive of the end date? (That's how recurring events in Google Calendar work.)

Thanks. This is important since I don't want to miss a reminder for an important recurring task (weekly homework). I couldn't find an answer on Google, RTM documentation, or these forums.

As long as we're talking about it, here's a related question:

If I create a task on Sunday, January 1 that says "repeat every Monday until January EIGHTH", will that ultimately create two tasks (on Jan 2 and Jan 9) or just one (on Jan 2)?

Hi chris.kimmel,
The task will repeat on the end date as well (to answer your first question), and would limit repetitions if they fall irregularly (to answer your second).

I hope that helps but let us know if you have any other questions!
