The schedule settings empower you to customize parameters, including recurring frequencies or conditions that automatically trigger task creation based on factors such as animal age or study tracking day. Additionally, you can define a date range for when the task commences and concludes.

For each recurring task group, define the start and end date between which the tasks will be generated. 
Note: updating the study start date will not impact recurring tasks, instead use the "shift dates" feature from the bulk actions menu.
