Your calendar should organize and insert the occurance for next month immediately after saving the entry.

Other than that, I really can't offer much assistance. I've never had this issue..

Calendar is generally for entering your obligations and appointments, meetings, etc.

Tasks are generally just things that you straight need to get done.

I would suggest entering this task into the Calendar instead of tasks.

It's quick, easy, and reliable. It will organize immediately after saving the entry.. and I've never had an issue with it not going off, unless I forgot to realize that I was entering it in with out an Alert.

Oh, and your Calendar will setup the entries for the next month automatically as well. It wont wait until the current months entry is complete/past.

sounds good ... i think it's probably easier to set it up in calendar vs task ...

thanks ... so could/should any reoccuring event/activity be done in task so that you can view them on a montly basis ...?

I guess that's all up to you, personal preference.

I don't use my Tasks program whatsoever.

Everythings on my calendar.
