It would be great if you could have a button to have Activities set to remind once a year for birthdays for example

    Hi @Mike Doiron !

    You can create an automation that generates a new activity for 1 year from now once you mark the initial "birthday activity" as done (the first one you'll have to create and mark as done manually): see the example below.

    Keep in mind that the 1 year period will be counted from the date when the activity is marked as done, not from the due date of the activity.

    How would you do this with the new workflow designer Ines?

    I tried the suggestion above and it works - however, it works on EVERY task that I mark as complete - including the ones that have nothing to do with a contact person's birthday. How do I narrow it down so it only does it for birthday reminders?

    I built a birthday flow using Make/Integromat.
