Automations that need to run on specific dates

Reviewing Recurring Automations for use with accounting, legal and tax.

I can’t find an option to schedule specific dates with recurring automations (e.g. VAT filing tasks, other tax filings, closing year, etc. etc.) - this seems counter intuitive since there are so many processes that require this.

Am I missing something here or is this not possible currently? 

Thanks for clarification

Hi @Keto-Faster how are you doing?

If you select the option Every month in How often? You will be able to select a specific day!

@lais-laudari I’m afraid that’s not what I was asking. That only allows a day of the month to be selected. 

As I mentioned, this does not cover a lot of important use cases for quarterly, yearly events such as filings, VAT submissions etc.

There are two ways to fix this:

  1. Add a ‘yearly’ option where we pick yearly dates (I could create 4 automations to cover each quarter if needed this way, so covers all cases) (simplest for you)
  2. Add a “CUSTOM” timing - drop down of interval (day, week, month) and allow us to add the interval (e.g. 2). That would equal every 2 months on the 7th for example. (better longer term - check out how google calendar does this for a good example)

Hi @Keto-Faster, how are you doing?

I totally agree with you. At this point we are lacking these feature you've mentioned and an improvement is needed in order to cover your suggestion.
