You can repeat an activity for a finite number of times within a specified period by making it recurring.
NB: The user must have the 'Add activities' and 'Manage assignees' permissions to be able to create a recurring activity.
To create a recurring activity:
- In Activity Center, select the activity you would like to set as a recurring one.
- Click the additional options button ( )
- Select 'Repeat'.
- In the Recurrence dialog box that opens:
- Set the recurrence pattern in the fields Repeat every and Repeat on.
- Set the start date in Starts on (current date by default).
- Select the end date of the recurring activity in Ends on (limited by the period of recurrence not exceeding one year), OR
- Set how many copies of the activity will be created in Number of occurrences (max 99).
- Click 'Apply'.
NB: The period of recurrence cannot exceed one year.
NB: The maximum number of occurrences that can be set is 99.
As a result, there will be created a parent activity, named 'Repetitions of [name of recurring activity}'.
