Hi All,

Great news!

I just got a message that Recurring Workflows are coming soon.

Customers have requested the ability to set up workflows that repeat on a regular schedule.

We're preparing recurrence for time-based workflows so you can save even more time on repetitive steps, such as daily due date reminders and weekly status update requests. This automation enhancement will be available this spring.

Spring can't come soon enough or what do you think?

Have a fantastic day!

Best,

Andrée Starå

    Hello there Andree, do you have a rough date for when this will be available?

     

  • Hello—

    Andrée, as a Smartsheet customer and community member, was posting an email that we sent out to several customers.

    Right now, we don't have a specific date for when this feature will be released. The target timeframe is this spring.

    Thanks for your interest!

  • yes yes yes! I'm so glad that this feature is coming. I hope these recurring tasks can be displayed simultaneously in one row.

    I've been looking at various project management tools and none of them have the ability to display recurring tasks in one row on the Gantt chart. The only thing i have found so far is in Wrike, which has an automated feature that will set up the tasks for you automatically, but it only sets it up when the next task is supposed to start, so you can't see it in advance in the Gantt chart. 

    thank you!

  • Excellent. This will be a great addition especially if it allows them to be shown on single row. 

    I have to show 3 x monthly board meetings over the next 4 years. The number of rows required to show this currently is ridiculous. 

    Roll on release date. 

     

  • How can we be notified when this enhancement is rolled out? 

  • I too would like to know as well.  

    At the moment I'm trying to figure out a workaround but this would make it so easy!

    Alright Shaine...

     

    We are more than a month into Spring now. Can we have our new toy? laugh

  • Most of the flowers aren't even in full bloom yet, Paul!

    Sorry, I don't have a target release date but we're pushing hard to get this out as soon as we can.

    Haha. Definitely looking forward to it. Thanks for the update.

  • You and me both.
