-If a task only occurs once, it is not recurring - it does not repeat. Otherwisetasks can repeat daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. A weekly task can occur on the same day of every week, or for example every Tuesday ​and Thursday. A Monthly task might occur on the 12th of every month, or on the third Tuesday of alternate months. ToDoList is *extremely* versatile in this regard.+If there is not already a recurrence defined, the column will be empty and the edit field shows "​Once"​.
-See the [[recurrence-options-dialog|Recurrence Options Page]] ​to define how the selected task(s) will re-occur.+See also: [[recurrence-options-dialog|Recurrence Options Page]].
