Best way to go about creating recurring tasks?

I need to add the ability for users to create recurring tasks.

As I understand it, scheduling recurring workflows are limited to Daily, Weekly, Monthly etc.

What’s the best way to achieve customizable scheduling similar to this:

Hello @doublejay

I will not recommend to create a recurring task each time per user. Instead, create the tasks in the database, and create only one “backend workflow” that read the next task to do (scheduled). Each time you run the recurring workflow you update the next task to do (days, weeks, …).
Need “Personal” plan minimum. Level of difficulty: high :sweat_smile:

Hi @JohnMark,

Not sure I understand.

This backend workflow - how do I get it to trigger recursively at the right time regardless of user input?

I need the tasks to be delegated to user regardless of whether or not the previous task was completed.

Or does your solution not require user input to create the next task.

The key, the Scheduler. Create one scheduled workflow. Look for the Bubble documentation.

" I need the tasks to be delegated to user regardless of whether or not the previous task was completed. " exactly. Yes it’s a complex operation. :sweat_smile:

Gotcha. Will need to investigate further at a more reasonable hour :sweat_smile:

Thanks!
