Some work that may need doing every month or so. But then when we do it, it can take several days for that project. As an example, I like to draft a newsletter about every month.

While I could set up a repeating task to appear every month, and I do, I often take more than one session to write it. I might start it on a Monday, and then work on it again every day until it’s done. Let’s say for this example, I’m done on Thursday.

In essence, this is a double cycle: one repeats every month, and the other every day until I’m done with it.

The setup for a double cycle is simple:

The task repeats by defer another by one day. When I’m done, I have a reminder to enter a defer date of 1 month when I’m done with the work.
