What is a recurring task?

A recurring task is a task that can be repeated various times throughout the week. The completion of a recurring task is determined by whether or not your child successfully completed every instance of the task. 

For example, if you set a recurring task for “Doing the Dishes” to occur on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, your child should verify that they have completed this chore on all 3 days, in order for the entire task to be considered “Complete”.

How can I make sure my child will be paid for their recurring tasks? 

To ensure your child gets paid on Pay Day, they will need to complete and check off every instance of the recurring task that has been assigned to them. If your child does not mark all instances of the recurring task as complete, unfortunately they will not get paid for the task. 

If your child only completes a portion of the task instances that were set, the task would still be considered incomplete, and as such, they would not get paid. For example, if you have assigned a recurring task to be completed on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but your child only completed the task on Monday, they will not get paid for the Monday portion of the task. Their total earnings for that task would remain $0.

Will my child be paid for completing a portion of the recurring task? 

Recurring tasks are currently not prorated. However, we completely understand that sometimes children can miss a day and still want to get paid! To ensure your child gets paid for each instance they complete, we recommend assigning “One-off” tasks. In the meantime, we are eager to let you know that we are working on adding advanced features that will allow recurring tasks to be prorated in the near future!
