I used to create calendar events for tasks I needed to do over and over again. Now there is an easier way, and it works in both Google Keep and Inbox by Gmail. Both applications have reminder functions that work almost identically. The difference between the two is where you can find these reminders in the future. You can see my previous post about these differences here.
Setting recurring, or repeating, reminders is a simple as clicking on the Reminder icon
in either application. You will then be prompted to enter the task or reminder you would like. Next, to get to the repeating setup, you need to select the Pick a Date and Time from the scheduling screen. Choose the date, the time, and then choose what type of repeating schedule you want (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, Custom). I usually choose custom where I am able to set any number of options including setting up an end to the repeating task.
Remeber, this feature is available in both Keep and Inbox and executed in a very similar manner. This is a great feature that for me has replaced entering repeating tasks in Google Calendar.
How have you been you bee using repeating Reminders?
