Regular reminder

shawn.wang says:
Here is what I want RTM to remind me:
Every week’s Monday to Friday at 8:30AM, remind me to work.

How can I set this task? And I don’t want to check the “complete” button everyday for the reminder.

Thanks!

Each task stays in your list until you complete it -- currently there's no way to set something as a 'reminder only' (although this has been suggested as a possible feature).

However, it's pretty easy to clear out overdue tasks by clicking on 'Select: Overdue' to select all overdue in a list, and then pressing 'Complete' to complete them all.

thanks for your reply, emily!

but how can I set the date to "weekdays"?
do I need to create 5 tasks and let them repeat every week?

The "reminder only" is really nice idea. Please think about it and put it on the todo list.

Shawn, you should be able to do this with one task.

Set the initial due date to "mon at 8:30am", and then set the repeat option to "every weekday". The task will now repeat Monday to Friday at 8:30am :)

Wunderbar! Just made my life that bit easier. Thanks Emily for the implementing Shawn's thoughts!

Now all that remains is the implementation of all the 'ideas' in one fell swoop!! ;-) That's what you're there for , right?!!
