View Full Version : Calender recursive Events
I have the following problem:
When I enter a recursive event, the start and end times change.
I add an event for the 26th of April, 6pm-10pm; recurs weekly for about 10 times.
The first month is fine - everything is okay. But in June everything gets wrong. The event is splitted into two days, because the time section of the datetime value was changed. with every new event day the timevalue ist decreased by one hour!!!
Does anyone have a clue???

I have a similar problem with the calendar, except when I enter reocurring events, they show correctly, but also identical events (2 of them per week) appear next to them only deferring in time. The day view that way looks very cluttered and confusing
Yeah same with me!
i have this problem as well, except in addition, if i don't specify a number of repeating times, it doesn't seem to save the event, so it's impossible to create an event which repeats indefinitely. If I do specify a number of repeating times i get the event appearing twice as you've described.
I can't help with the shifting date on recursive events but the display of events on calendars etc is explained here:
Indefinite repeating is not available.
Ok, I've read the note about events display but it doesn't make sense. If I go into the calendar and create a standard event (ie. non repeating), it appears as I expect it should, as one block from the start to the finish. It's only if I create a repeating event that I get duplicate display so it seems more like a bug than functionality.
As a suggestion there really should be some error checking on the Event creation with regards to indefinite repeating. If you check the repeating box with no number of repeats and click submit, there is no error. It just takes you back to the calendar page with no entry and the user scratching their head as to what, if anything has happened.
BTW, great program, we're using it to manage our web development business and hope to contribute to it's development at some stage (provided it helps us get organised enough to find the time) :)

I commented on recursive events in a different thread.
But just wanted to add to Nathan's comments. The way recursive events is handled at the moment DOES feel like a bug. Events that don't appear without specifying the number of repeats just get lost in the system. And then events that are given a repeated value don't recur when they should.
I've just decided to comment out recursive options for the moment. This feature is not intuitive at all.
Everything else seems fab though. Still a newbie with the whole thing but so far, so good.
