Each project may have a lot of regular and repeatable events which occur from time to time throughout the project life cycle. These events can be meetings, project breaks, status reports, holidays, systematic control measures and other. Efficient management of recurrent events assumes that the project manager spends less time and resources to renew a finished event and then to start it again. When building a project schedule, the manager can plan repeatable events in advance so that the team members will be aware of all arrangements concerned to them.
In task management software like VIP Task Manager , repeatable project events can be organized into recurring tasks. VIP Task Manager allows to set up task recurrence and input customizable recurrence patterns for repeatable tasks in projects. The recurrence pattern can be established for daily, weekly, monthly and yearly events with any duration (for example, a task can repeat weekly for a month). For example, the project manager can create recurrent tasks for regular Friday's meetings, weekly status reports, decade project breaks, or else. When a recurrent task is completed, VIP Task Manager creates a copy of this task. The project manager can input task parameters once again.
