Now Google tasks supports recurrence for tasks, it would be nice to also have the edit functionalities in Lightning when creating a task.

I believe Provider for Google Calendar uses the Google Tasks API.  There was a reply on Stackoverflow from September 2019 which stated that the Google Tasks API doesn't allow for recurring tasks.


Also I looked around the Google Tasks API site.  I also searched the site using the words recur and repeat.  I didn't find any mention of recurring or repeating tasks.  It refers to a task as "A single task containing information such as the title of the task, notes, the due date, and the completed date."


But I'm no expert.  This is what I found in searching for an answer.

Well, using the Google tasks app, I can set recurrence for tasks. I don't know any more than that, if it has made it in the API or if it's documented, but it's certainly usable on their app.

I've seen that.  The only other thing I can add is that Evolution email has added repeating tasks capability for Evolution's task list but when you switch to syncing with Google tasks it doesn't allow for repeating tasks.  The options are the same as Provider.  At least as of a month or two ago.

I imagine that Google could make its own app without having to rely on the public Google Tasks API.

The Google Calendar API has a section for recurring events.



There seems to be no equivalent section for or mention of recurring tasks for the Google Tasks API.  So I suspect that Google just hasn't enabled the feature for apps other than their own.

Today the recurring tasks feature update just made it into the Android Google Tasks App, so I reckon the API must've been also updated.

Interesting... Tasks created in the Google Task android app show up in my Android calendar, but do not appear in the Google Calendar web portal.
