Matterlist implements a unique approach to recurring tasks: it separates the definitions of recurring tasks from the actual recurrences themselves.
The vast majority of existing to-do list apps implement recurring tasks as an option within regular tasks. By contrast, in Matterlist recurring tasks are defined in a separate list.
Having separate definitions for recurring tasks offers a key benefit: it allows you to treat instances of recurring tasks as normal, regular tasks. You can safely delete, rename, edit, or postpone them without the fear of messing up all their future recurrences. Additionally, you can view the recurrences on the infinite timeline, so you can edit them all the way into the future!
