How do I specify "last Friday of May"

I tried the same sentence i.e.

^last Friday of May

but it did not work.

It took the first day of May, which is not a Friday, a Tuesday rather.

Thanks in advance for your tips.

Hi mmasroorali,
It's not currently possible to specify a due date such as "last Friday of May", sorry. You can find a list of acceptable date formats here.

However, it is possible to set a task's repeat interval to "every month on the last Friday". If your task is repeating, you could use this to generate the due date for you each month.

Hope that helps!

Similarly I have several tasks that need to be on the first or last workday of the month. It's a real pain when RTM thinks I should complete my timesheet on a Sunday, for example.

Hi rubyji,
Thanks for your feedback on this as well. A repeat interval of "every month on the last weekday" has been suggested in our Ideas forum, so you may also want to vote for it here.
