Recurring Tasks and time in date custom fields.

I'd like to set up a series of recurring tasks to help our team manage regular calls to customers. There may be multiple calls per day. This enables us to have a calendar view where staff can see what is coming up for the week/month.

When creating the recurring task, if we could set a time and date custom field during configuration it would prevent staff having to manually set this after the fact, and having to do it each time a recurring task is generated. Ideally the date portion of the custom field would match the recurring task date. So I just want to set the time as part of the recurring task.

We want to use the custom time and date field to automate reminders to assignees - Ie. get an email 30 minutes in advances to remind of the call and the task details.

Is there a workaround for this other than manually setting the custom field for every recurring task?

The problem is that wrike doesn't support time infomation for due dates and calendars, only in custom fields. A feature we also requested long ago.

Hi James Ackerly, thank you for creating this post. At the moment, it is not possible to automatically copy the value of a field (system or custom) to paste in a different one - in this case, a custom field. I have passed your feedback on to our Product Team 👍

Thanks for your insights Florian Kislich
