Recur Entries

Intro

We don't want this tea just once, we want it every few days. So next we learn how to recur entries efficiently.

As with the previous tutorials, we recommend opening a new browser tab and follow the steps along. It should take less than 5 minutes to complete this.

Step 1

If you have been following on the tutorials, you should have a few "Tea" related entries labelled Beverage. Use these or any other test entry you have created. After logging into DayViewer, from your calendar, select the "Make a Cup of Tea Task entry. The side panel view entry / edit form will open.

Next click Recur tab on the top menu. A small calendar will show up. Select the dates you wish for the entry to be copied to.

After clicking Create Entry Series button. You can go back to your calendar (refresh if necessary) and the new entries will show as image.

You will note that all details are copied to each entry. In your dashboard view - if there are any task entries copied prior to the current time, they will show up on the Overdue list - for this example we have a few as indicated in the image below.

Summary

As you can see entries that have been created by this recur method are independant clones of the original. This is so you can edit each individually once created.

NB: Recur Entries is a DayViewer Pro feature.
