Repeating tasks

You change your bed linens every week. You visit a dentist for a regular check up every six months. You go for your 5 km run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Stick regular tasks on repeat, and SingularityApp will keep creating new tasks at the right time automatically and will place them in the Today folder

Stick a task on repeat

  1. Do one of the following:
    Method 1. Press  ⌘ Cmd +  Shift +  R
    Method 2. Open the task and click on   Repeat.

    Method 3. Right-click on the task. In the pop-up menu select Repeat.

  2. Choose a repetition interval for the task.

Change the recurrence settings

If a task is set to repeat, it becomes a template.

Every time, according to your settings, new tasks will be created based on this template. The task template and the task look different: there is a  repeat icon to the left of the template’s name while to the left of a task’s name there is a checkbox..

There is a mark in the task meaning that the task was created by the template.

You can change the settings for each newly created task copy or for the task template.

Changes to the settings of a task (its date, time, notification, note, checklist, tags, and deadline) will not affect either other occurrences of the task or its template. If you need to make changes to all newly created tasks, then you need to edit the original template task.

You can go to the task template by two ways:

Method 1. By the context menu of the task copy

Select Go to template in the task context menu.

Method 2. By clicking the link in the task editing panel.

Open the task editing panel and click template link.

The project will open and the required template will be highlighted.

There are several ways to open the template settings window:

Method 1. Press  ⌘ Cmd +  Shift +  R
Method 2. In the context menu of the template, select: RepeatReschedule
Method 3. Click on the   calendar icon to the left of the template.
Method 4. In the template editing panel, click on the line with the   repeat icon and a description of the recurrence settings.

Pause a task

If a task execution is not possible at the scheduled time, you can pause it instead of deleting and then creating and configuring it again. To do this:

  1. Open the task.
  2. Click on   Repeat.
  3. In the pop-up window, click on   Pause.

Resume a task

  1. Open the task.
  2. Click on   Repeat.
  3. In the pop-up window click on   Play.
