Vikunja and not working with recurring Tasks

Hi. I have used Tasks-org on the phone with Nextcloud Task for Web-Access for quite a while without any problems with recurring tasks, but as the Nexctloud Task App is missing many important features, I would like to switch to Vikunja. Unfortunately, the recurring Tasks feature seems to have many problems.

  1. Tasks-org → Vikunja: When I add a recurring Tasks in the App, this setting is not added in the Vikunja Tasks, the information is completely missing

  2. Vikunja → Tasks-org: When I create the recurring Taks in Vikunja, the intervall Information can’t be read by App and is shown like this: “FREQ=SECONDLY;INTERVALL=604800”.

Tested with latest versions of Vikunja Back- and Frontend and Tasks-org. Sync via CalDav.

As it worked without any Problems with Nextcloud via CaldDav and alle Apps say they implement the CalDav Protocolls, I assume the Bug is located in Vikunja.

Is this a known Bug? If not, I can try to make some more tests and provide a more detailed Bug-Description.

Best regards,

That’s a known bug. The root-cause here is Vikunja uses a fundamentally different model in how it handles recurring tasks. Fixing this would require changing that model completely, which is no small thing to do (though it is on the roadmap)

Thank you for the quick response.

Unfortunately, my Workflow relies heavily on mobile app usage and recurring tasks (all these reminders! :wink: ). I hope some day this will be fixed and I can integrate Vikunja into my Workflow. A full-featured Web Frontend is something I really miss.

You can already use the PWA (open the web frontend, then “add to home screen” or similar) to get an App-like experience. Or the app, though that is not feature-complete.

Nice! Ich will have a look!
