Recurring Activities

Activities are commonly used to document your completed work throughout the day, but they can also be used to schedule events, follow-ups, or reminders in the future. All of your Scheduled Activities will flow to your Planner where they can be managed day-to-day.

Scheduled Activities also include the option to repeat over a period of time. You can apply daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, or even custom recurrence options for Activities that occur at regular intervals.

Recurring Activities will be designated with the following icon throughout the software

  • Navigate to a Datasheet, Pipeline or Planner within Big Biller
    • From a Datasheet – locate the Open Activities card and click on the Schedule icon
