Recurring task on weekdays but not weekends Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Can I set up a task to recur daily but only on Mon-Fri and not during the weekends?
This isn't possible in a straightforward way, but this has come up frequently, and there are a number of workarounds described in older threads. Search for "weekend task" in the forums, and you'll get a bunch of hits.
I'd characterize it as "straightforward, but tedious" :-)

Instead of 1 task repeating daily, you use 5 tasks (one for each weekday) repeating weekly, with start dates set so that you don't see each task until the appointed day. This tactic can be used for more unusual repeat structures as well.

It would be nice if Omni would implement something that at least handled the weekday/weekend case, for sure, but the parallel repeats will always be useful for irregular cases. I don't think it is likely that we'll get something that allows one to configure a task to repeat 1x/month only in the months of January, April, June, and September, for example.
Ah, I gotcha. That is tedious, but it's worth it if I can set it up right.

Thanks for the helpful replies!
