Recurrent tasks provide a way to be reminded to perform a task regularly.
There are two distinct objects involved in recurrences:
- Frequency: the time interval at which the recurrence takes place
- Recurrence: the core task that contains all the information about the recurrence (e.g., frequency) but also the blueprint for the occurrences themselves; it is sometimes also called recurrent task or recurrence template
- Occurrence: the regular task which is created based on the frequency and template/blueprint
If a recurrence has a description, whenever an occurence is created, it will include the recurrence's description.
As for regular tasks, a recurrent task can then be edited (name, description, etc.). The difference with regular tasks is that the recurrent task acts as a blueprint for the occurrences that will be subsequently created.
The frequency can also be updated along with different start/end dates etc.
Likewise, the recurrence can be stopped completely.
For now, stopping a recurrence converts the recurrent task into a regular task. If you want to get rid of the task altogether, you will need to archive the newly created regular task.
