More options for recurring events
Allow recurring events to reoccur on a "custom" basis
first Monday of the month
last day of the month
Also, x days (weeks, months, years) from last completion date. So, for example, if a weekly task is completed 2 days late, it is due one week from the completion date vs the scheduled date.

That’s exactly what I was thinking this morning Rach. Thank you!
App is not even complete without this feature

This right here is the only reason I still have reminders in the iOS reminders app. I have a few things that remind me on the last day of the month or the last weekday of the month. Please add this.
I use Outlook for my business and I relied a lot on the extra options for recurring events. I wouldn't like to have to switch to another app just because of this simple feature that is missing now! Thanks for considering this!
Why isn't there some sort of uniformity within all the Microsoft apps. Microsoft To-Do should atleast have the same recurring task options that exist on Outlook.
The main reason why I'm still at Any.Do ... missing the flexible recurrence settings of Any.Do here!

I agree, the current repeat options are very limited and should be extended. Please implement at least the same possibilities as Outlook offers for tasks (recurrence settings).
Thank you. Almost all my recurring tasks have to be planned as "every third Tuesday of a month", "every second Monday of a month" etc. This function is crucial!

This helps to create your day plan, no need to manually copy the work
Closest weekday on/before 15th or each month, repeating
Please have a look at TickTick (Android app) they have all the options.
Also, currently when I chose weekly for reoccuring tasks it sets them to reoccur a day early and sets the reoccuring schedule on the day I set it for as well as the day before. This glitch is a pain because I constantly need to reset dates for reoccuring tasks

Why is it so hard to include an actual customized recurring event? I’d love the ability to choose specific days of the week. (ie. Every Mon, Tue, Fri)
Adding more options in the "custom recurring events" would be very helpful.
Also, recurring event based on the last time it was completed, rather than the last time it was due.
For example, I need to clean the dust out of my PC every 3 months. I just cleaned it and set up a recurring reminder to remind me every 3 months - so I'll get a reminder at month 3, then month 6, then month 9, etc.
But if I delay and don't clean it until month 5, I don't want a reminder at month 6 - I want a reminder 3 months later at month 8.
How could this even be hard to do? It's been 3.5 years...

I am trying to migrate from Apple Reminders and Remember The Milk, both of which all recurrences like "last Tuesday of the month" or "1st, 3rd, 5th Friday", but Todo does not, so as much as I like it, this probably won't work for me.

Just an FYI on two of your options, as I use them:
- Every Weekday is already implemented.
- If you set the due date to say 31st March, and recurring Monthly, it will always select the end of the month (whether it's 31st, 30th or 28th Feb).
I also have a custom recurring event set up to repeat every 2 months on the 1st of the month (for my GST returns).
So, you can do some of what you've asked already.

Yes I cannot believe this is something we have to ask for. It's been an Outlook feature for as long as I can remember.
