General Support: Changing Repeat Settings
Can you tell I've been playing with the calendar all morning?! I've have just entered a recurring event but I must have done something wrong in the settings as it's not recurring as I would like it too. I can edit the events and change timings, description etc. but I can't see how I change the recurring settings. Anyone know?
Yes, I'm afraid that although you can change the time and details and select "Apply to all events" - there's no way to edit all the recurrance intervals of an existing event. You need to delete and then recreate it.
Not ideal, and I'll add this as a feature request too!
No worries. I've just noticed as well that when you choose a repeat option "Same (Monday) of the month" it can cause a problem if the month happens to have five Mondays. There is no way to differentiate between last Monday of the month and 4th Monday of the month. I hope that makes sense.
Ah yeah, that's a bit of a pain. It counts forward the number of Mondays from the start of the month, so as you say this can have strange affects if you want to always get the last one in the month, as there aren't always the same number.
It would be possible to have an option of "last <chosen day> of the month" if that's likely to be widely useful for lots of people.
I think that "same <day> of the month counted from the end" would be too confusing an option for anyone to understand? :-)
Is there any timetable for fixing this please? As well as the long standing problem of the Church doing Fifth Sunday events, the newly formed DSL Walkers meet on Last Thursdays. It is still impossible to make a repeating event for Last Thursdays etc, so each walk has to be a separate, once only, event. Frustrating!
Sorry - this never really became important enough for enough sites (well, paying clients!) for us to implement it.
Voice development and hosting is funded by clients who pay to use the platform - such as Surrey Community. So development tends to be focussed only on those areas that our clients feel are most beneficial to their users.
So, for the foreseeable future, I'm afraid you're stuck with manually creating the events for the last Thursday of each month.
