    To add to the thought processes here.  The limit of 60 recurrences is a bit ridiculous.. why?

    We have recurring tasks that occur daily, or sometimes twice daily during the lifetime of a client, which is on average 4.8 years.  So setting up our task management to handle these scenarios is hugely time consuming and impacting our margins.

    Further, why are recurrent tasks unable to be edited in the same way that a normal task is?  Why not either use the same editor, or, copy the template or base task?

    All comments here are spot on.  @stephanie, we've tried your suggestion of default status as deferred, but again, the scenario above created a mammoth management task and caused a great deal of missed deadlines and tasks and confusion in the team.

    Hey everyone! I am a product owner at Wrike and I am now responsible for recurring work experience along with trial and admin experience. Based on feedback that we receive, we feel that improving recurrent tasks is a priority, and that is why we plan to release a new recurrence engine soon. The update will address many of the suggestions that were brought up here and in adjacent threads - thank you so much for your passion and candid feedback. It is much appreciated.

    It is very important for my team and me to get first hand feedback on what we plan to release, so we will run a short closed beta program before the global rollout. I will post an update here in the upcoming weeks with instructions on how to get on private beta for those interested.

    Stephanie,

    Very glad to see this being addressed. Would've given a +1 if it were possible! Is there somewhere we can follow along with the progress of this?

    Awesome!  Told our account manager (Joel), we're extremely interested in the private beta.  

    Our agency does everything on a recurring bases, and the current tool (that is really just "duplicate tasks", not "recurring tasks"), causes issues for us every month.  Since we're always losing track of random series when they wrap up.

    Very excited that the recurrence engine (which is currently more of a duplication engine) is being fixed.  We just joined Wrike and are feeling like our hands are tied on recurring tasks because we thought they would be straight forward and intuitive like other platforms (e.g. a simple recurring calendar event in Outlook, where you can modify the recurrent series or you can modify a single instance).  We are now having to do workarounds and reminders to duplicate more instances, which was not what we had in mind.

    We would be eager to join the beta!

    Please include Showcase in your beta program.  We are a 100-store national retailer who's just launched Wrike, so we are really able to test the limits of the system, as well as provide a useful and credible case study and reference.

    I'm currently testing Wrike for my team and the recurrence experience is a big stumbling block for us too. I'm just in the free trial at this point, but would love to have access to the beta to see if it will address the issue for our team. Happy to give feedback as well! :)

    I found it fail to add custom field for recurring task, I can only add custom field for each task, but not all series of them.
