This article describes the difference between the Recurring and Regenerate options in an Outlook task.
When you create a task in Outlook, and then click Recurrence on the Actions menu, you receive a dialog box that has two choices. You can either click Recurring, or Regenerate.
The two choices affect the due date of the task.
If you click Recurring, when you complete the task, a new task is generated that is due on the day that you specified. For example, if you have a recurring task due every Friday, and you complete one instance of this task on Thursday, the next recurring task is due the next day, Friday.
If you click Regenerating, when you complete the task, a new task is generated that is due relative to the date that the task is complete. For example, if you have a regenerating task due once a week, and you complete the task on Thursday, the next task is due the following Thursday.
