In order to rotate a chore you must select more than one assignee.

Select “Rotate between assignees”

Tap “First in Rotation” and set the child you want to start the rotation.  

Select a start date.  The app will default to today as the start date.  The first child in the rotation will begin the rotation on the start date.  

If you are assigning multiple rotating chores to your children, it is easiest to use the same start date for all your rotating chores.  Using the same start date will make it easy for you to evenly distribute your rotating chores between your children by setting the first child in the rotation differently for each chore.

Choose a schedule option.

If you select Daily, the first child in the rotation will be assigned the chore on the first day, the next child in the list of assignees will be assigned the chore on the second day, etc.  

If you select Weekly, the first child in the rotation will be assigned the chore on the selected day(s) of the first week after the start date.  The next assignee will be assigned the chore on the selected day(s) of the second week, etc.

If you select Monthly, the first child in the rotation will be assigned the chore on the selected date(s) in the first month after the start date.  The next assignee will be assigned the chore on the selected date(s) of the second month, etc.
