I want to set a recurring task to also have a recurring reminder. I understand how to set the task to recur, but for the associated reminder I do not see an option to set it also to recur. Does that mean that, if I set my reminder to coincide with the first due date, the reminder automatically recurs for every future due date? Thank you!
Indeed, reminders should automatically recur with the item. If you have any more questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding.

apologies for the troubles. We will fix this, stay tuned.

When you create a recurring task with a reminder time on it and check it off, the new tasks should also have an updated reminder time. If that is not working, please tell me on which device.
Recurring tasks with recurring reminders do exist – if you’re having issues with this, please let us know on which device you’re not seeing the reminders recur along with the task and we’ll looking into it further.
you have to set a due date and a recurring intervall first. Then setup a reminder for the task. If you now check that task of, a new one will be created with a new reminder :)
All the best from Berlin,
Recurring tasks work alongside recurring reminders – you do, however, need to check off and complete a task, then let the system sync, before seeing the next task with associated due date and reminder.
I’ll put your suggestion on our list of weekly feature requests to discuss with our developers – some users would like to only have the new task and reminder come up when the other is complete, whereas others feel as you do. Perhaps we can find a middle ground.
You can set reminders without due dates, but you’re right, in order to recur they need to have a due date. This is primarily because the logic of Wunderlist relies on you completing a task (with a due date) before getting the new instance of it. I’ll add it to our list of suggested features, but in the meantime a workaround would be adding a due date – doesn’t matter when it is, really – making it repeat daily, and making the reminder (which will then repeat by default whenever you check off the task).
