Recurring Events 1st and 3rd etc

Have a great idea on how VueMinder could be improved? Post it here!

Recurring Events 1st and 3rd etc

Postby rjm01 » Sun Oct 17, 2010 2:29 pm

How about a setup that you could do the 1st and 3rd or the 2nd and 4th Weekday of the month- it can be done thorough the month view but this is a pain.

Thanks

Thank you for the suggestion. If I understand what you're requesting, you'd like to have multiple recurrence patterns for the single event. For example, in the current version, a monthly pattern can be either the 2nd Wednesay or the 3rd Friday, but can't have both of these applied at the same time.

The reason it's like this is because the iCalendar standard, and software VueMinder syncs with (Google Calendar, Outlook) don't support complex merging of multiple recurrence patterns. I think I understand what you're asking, but I'm not sure it's technically feasible, or how well it would work when syncing with other software.

Thanks for the clarification. I will simply create separate events for this.
