Is it possible to use days of the week instead of a date in Bill and Income Reminders

I have a bill that is automatically paid every Tuesday and Thursday. How do I indicate that in Bill and Income Reminders?

    Hello @Caryl

    Thank you for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I do apologize for the issue you're having. You should be able to do this by changing the reminder to a weekly but you would also need to make a second reminder for each day since there is not option to pay twice a week. You should be able to do so by making one reminder on Tuesday and one on Thursday.  This should work for your needs. If you have any questions please let us know.

    Thanks,

    You certainly can indicate a day of the week for payments:


    If the same payee is getting paid twice a week I'd set that up as two payees, one paid Tuesday, one paid Thursday, using very slight differences in the payee's name.

    Why introduce slight differences in the payee's name? Multiple reminders to the same payee work fine.

    That's so you don't confuse one with the other, e.g.,
    Lottery Tickets {Tue}
    Lottery Tickets {Thu}
