Allow more flexible recurring events
I am hoping future updates will include more flexible recurring events. For any to do list, there are many types of recurring events that are essential, but not included in this new Wunderlist. For example:
- 3rd Monday of the month
- Last Thursday of the month
- Last business day of the month
- The 15th of the month, or, if it falls on a weekend, the Friday previous, or the Monday after.
- Every 5th of January, April, July & October
This is so important!
This post is from January 2013. This feature would need just a few lines of code, some regexp and that’s it. If wunderlist staff would care, they could have implemented this years ago.

Can't use the product without this functionality.
Without a recurring facility Wunderlist is not an option for my operation, pity, excellent product otherwise
To have an option for bi-weekly reminders
Yes, weekdays only would be a great addition to this list.

LOL. This basic request has existed for 4 years?
In addition to repeat every X days, the feature to have repeat *After* X days would be really great.
Or as other people have called it, "repeat after execution".
This is the only thing that keeps me with Remember the Milk, which does have this feature...

More important for me than the above whiches: choice for "fixed repeat" or "after execution"
e.g: Something has to be done at least every 10 days. Last time it was done on 1st, so next time should be the 11. I have time to do it on the 8th. When ticked, next dates must be 18th, not again on 11th because that´s then only 3 more days.

Any dev/support feedback on why this isn't moving anywhere? The last official response was over a year ago. This is obviously something the customer base really, really wants; why can't you guys discuss it?

Good grief--why isn't this done yet?? Over 14,000 votes and it is not even on the Planned List. C'mon guys, get with the program.
Randy Whitchurch commented
AND--re-set a recurring event date based on completion, e.g. two weeks from completion.

Without the ability to schedule a recurring task to something like "Third Monday of the month," Wunderlist becomes an unexceptable app for me. Please make this change!
Why is this no longer planend? How Clan you have a Platform for Suggestions and Not react to your users' needs?
The functionality of Outlook 2013 for recurring events is the absolute minimum for me.
The proposed examples would be even better.

Most importantly, as 'every weekday' recurrence ... as many daily tasks for work don't need to be executed on weekends :)
Honestly, this is the ONLY thing i dislike about Wunderlist. I'd buy a subscription for this if necessary....
WHY HAS THIS NOT BEEN DONE YET?!?!?! IT'S BEEN 4 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
all the above are good, could we also have a working week repeat?
I don't understand why this hasn't been implemented yet! It's been 15 months Wunderlist! I love you but this would help a ton and not make me have wandering eyes at other to-do list apps!
