Hi Robert,

Sorry for the surprise. We removed this feature because, despite our best efforts, it did not work reliably for most of our users.

Thanks for your understanding.

It worked well enough for me, and now something I relied on all the time is gone! I have to manually create the same tasks each week!!!

Ben, it may not have been perfect but it was so important that imperfect was better that not having one at all. It worked well enough for me too and I really hope that you plan on reintroducing a solution real soon.

I still fail to understand how such an important feature as 'task recurrence' can disappear overnight. Connect Action was THE BEST task management solution out there; Its visual elegance, simple to use approach, intelligent automatic prioritization of tasks, and ability to automatically recur tasks put it way above the rest. Now that last bit has disappeared and I am in need of another solution.

Thanks for the feedback. We definitely know that this is a desirable feature, that is why I had it built in the first place. We are in the process of updating our architecture and after we are done I will look into whether there are ways that it can be better implemented in the future.

Thanks for your understanding.

Wow this was the only feature keeping me from switching to Kanbanery (I'm not being dramatic and I don't work for Kanbanery). So I guess this is goodbye, Cohuman/Mindjet Action.

This answers the question I had posted today about the missing repeat field in the task window that I discovered while learning the software with the trail version - bummer. MindJet is making a mistake losing this functionality. Maybe I won't buy.
