Is there a way to create an activity log on a recurring basis? For example, cleaning barn first of the every month, counting dead animals every two days, etc.
There isn’t a way to do this automatically yet, but we’re discussing this feature request here: Recurring tasks [#2962368] | Drupal.org
In the meantime, the way I accomplish it is using the “Clone log” action. Try this: go to a list of logs (either Records > Logs > [type], or the “Upcoming/Late Tasks” lists on the dashboard), click the checkbox next to one of the logs, and then select “Clone” from the “Action” dropdown. You can specify the date of the cloned log and then click “Clone” to create it.
You can create a bunch in advance, or create the next one when you finish the current one. That’s usually what I do.
