Creating a recurring event

A recurring event is an event that occurs more than once and on a regular basis (e.g., a weekly meeting or an annual anniversary). As with one-time events, it is best to move sequentially down the screen rather than to jump from field to field randomly.

Scheduling recurring events is similar to scheduling one-time events, except the emphasis is placed on the Repeat field options.

  1. Daily — Allows appointments to repeat every 1 day through 31 days (e.g., yoga every 2 days)
  2. Weekly
    • Repeat every x weeks (e.g., labwork every 5 weeks)
    • Weekdays to repeat on (e.g., history class every Monday and Wednesday)
  3. Monthly
    • Repeat every x months (e.g., performance review every 3 months)
    • Repeat on Each (e.g., visit mom the 1st of each month to help with medications)
    • Repeat on the (e.g., staff meeting every 2nd Tuesday of the month)
  4. Yearly — Allows appointments to repeat once a year (e.g., anniversary)
  5. Rolling Event — These events will automatically advance to the next day until dismissed.
