This is a gap in the automations functionality that should be very quickly fixed.
Background: There are only day, week and month options.
Problem: This doesn’t cover many important use cases like quarterly, yearly (e.g. many financial/ filing tasks in particular are not every month, they have frequencies at longer durations)
There are two ways to fix this:
- 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)
- 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 - just copy them)
