Setting dates and times for your task in your project can help you to keep track of which tasks are falling behind and which tasks are completed beforehand.
You will also get reminded via in-app notifications or email notifications of upcoming tasks or tasks that are about to be due.
If you switch your List or Sublist to the Timeline view, you can also see your tasks with dates spread out in a horizontal timeline view. It can provide you with a clear overview of when the project starts and ends.
Set a due date
Decide when a task should be done (aka give it a deadline) by setting a due date.
Click on the date icon to set a due date. Or hit < on the keyboard when the task(s) is selected.
You can click on a shortcut, Today, Tomorrow, or Next Week to quickly add a due date. To clear the due date, click None.

Set tasks as recurring
You can repeat a task that happens periodically. Once you have completed a recurring task, Quire will automatically add the same task in a few seconds with the new date.
Click on the date icon, and toggle on Set to repeat in the date picker.
Choose how often and what day you want to repeat the task.
Setting tasks to repeat monthly, yearly, or custom is only available in the Professional, Premium, Enterprise plans. More information can be found on our Pricing page.
You can also choose to repeat a task since the last day you completed it by choosing custom in the dropdown of Repeat.
If the recurring task is a parent task, the subtasks will recur after you have completed the parent task. However, you can unselect the option for the subtasks not to recur automatically in the date picker.
