Recurring tasks - set for every 2, 3 years etc.

I did search the recurring task product feedback and did not find one to match my request.  I hope I didn't duplicate it.

We have a number of tasks that only happen every other year or every 3 or more years.

Currently you can set tasks to a yearly frequency. 

Business license renewals, engineer license renewals (as an example) only occur every 2 years. 

We would love to see the ability to set a recurrence for every 2 years, 3 years, etc.

I second this.

Some of our periodic document reviews are planned on a 3 yearly schedule. So Increasing the maximum frequency of recurring tasks would also benefit users from our workspace.

Hi guys, correct me if I'm totally wrong (it happens 🙃) But using the below you should be able to set a yearly reoccurring task - is this helpful?

Hi Stephen,

I'm currently unable to set the the repetition interval for years. An extra option like in this mock up would work for us:

This is still an issue for us...we really need to be able to schedule recurrent tasks for every other year or every 3 years, every 4 years, every 5 years, etc.

Joris Hoffbauer's suggestion above would work great.

Upvote... Currently, we have to set these types of tasks as recurring every year, and add a note in the task description about when the actual next recurrence should be so we can delete the recurrences for years when they shouldn't happen. This approach causes extra work and some confusion, so it would be great to see the "Repeat every ____ years" option that Joris Hoffbauer suggested.

100%, do this. This would allow us to use Wrike a lot more than we do

Every x amount of days would be even better. This would make Wrike a lot more valuable to our company because we could use it for calibration.

We have to use a separate ticketing system for calibration because intervals are always analyzed and adjusted as per our customer's requirements.

We need this also. We have tasks that are due every 2 and 3 years (registration renewals, etc.).

I know this hasn't reached the required 50 votes, but are there any updates on this? This would be a game changer for scheduling equipment maintenance, we currently have tasks that need to repeat every 2-3 years and we have to schedule them manually.

Any update? As quoted above needed for scheduling equipment maintenance. If colleagues have to adjust tasks every year, it is not user-friendly, more chance on mistakes and difficult to convince them to use the tool.

I am planning equipment Maintenance, some of which only needs certain tasks carried out every 3 or 4 years. Currently I can only plan this every 1 year. Specifying number of years in the same way as months and days would be great!
