Im working on a form for a feature for a report that can have its frequency scheduled set by the user. One of the requests from our product owner is that the user is able to set frequency by a monthly option that is "on the third wednesday" of the month. How would this be described in the options?

a On the X day of the month

b "Week of the Month", "Day of the Week" ie. "1st Monday"

1 Answer 1


You can look at Omnifocus (a task management app), which has a repeat task option.

They split it into two dropdowns once you select Repeat monthly.

Option 1: select specific days for the month:

Option 2: select days of the week for each month

Update: Another option - make it read like a sentence

You could also make the form to read like a sentence.

  • Thanks, that looks like the solution I have presented however it's not the workflow I am looking to solve but its actual name (label). Is there a common name for "on the X day of the month" (ie "on the third wednesday of the month")

    I see...Could you just have a label saying 'on the [select frequency] [select day] of each [month/week]'? You make it read like a sentence so there's no label per se.

  • Yeah that could work! I think we're considering integrating the functionality into a label similar to that. Thanks Mike! Big appreciation from Vancouver :)
