Recurring events

When you create or edit an event, you can specify that it repeats during a particular period. By default, repeating events are a linked series; changes to the event apply to all events in the series. To edit the details of a single event within that series – for example, to change the guest speaker name or topic at a monthly seminar – unlink the series first. When you unlink events from a series, it's not possible to re-link them.

Add a recurring event

  1. Go to your calendar page.
  2. Create a new event (or edit an existing event).
  3. To set this event to recur from the Start date onwards, choose an option from the Repeats menu: daily, every weekday (Monday to Friday), weekly, monthly or annually. Set the Until date to specify when the recurring event stops. For example:

    Set event to repeat

  4. Click Create event (or Save changes if you're editing an existing event).

Edit recurring events separately

  1. Go to your calendar page.
  2. Click the summary of a recurring event you wish to edit. In the pop-up, click the unlink button. (If your calendar is set to Day or Agenda view, click the Unlink item link beneath the event.)

    Unlink recurring event

  3. The Unlink events warning pop-up appears. Once you unlink repeating events, you cannot re-link them; they are treated as separate events. To go ahead, select the Unlink button.
  4. You can now edit the event details.

Delete one occurrence of a recurring event

  1. Click the summary of the recurring event you wish to delete. In the pop-up, select the delete button. (If your calendar is set to Day or Agenda view, click the Delete item link beneath the event.)

    Delete event

  2. The Delete event pop-up appears. Select one of the following options:

    • Delete this occurrence (this unlinks all other events in the series)
    • Delete the series
  3. To confirm your choice, click the Delete button.
