    I'm not sure about Tasks, but you can schedule a reoccuring appointment in your calendar everyday at a certain time.

    hope that helps

    The only suggestion I can think of for that is when the task pops up the reminder, instead of "dismissing" it, choose "Open" and change the reminder date to 24 hours later, then save. Otherwise, yeah, its the calendar appointment.

    Yea you can have reoccurring tasks. Was just playing with it. Actually you can set it for everyday.

    You need directions?

    It helps when I actually set the due date, then it pops right up. *forehead slap*

    Just set the recurrence tab near the bottom to daily and have the reminder set to the time you want ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Cool, here we go.

    Ok go to Tasks and create a new one. example: Take Meds

    Settings as follows
    Status : Not Started
    Priority : your prefrence
    Due: Pick tomorrow, and whatever time you want to take your meds
    Reminder : Relative and choose when you want the reminder (0 mins for it to remind you at that exact time) I'm guessing on that one...hopefully i'm right.
    Recurrence : Daily
    Every : 1
    End : Never

    Now once you take your meds you need to mark it completed....then the next recurrence will appear the next day at the same time.

    Hope that helps.

    I just learned something new today!!! hehe
