SharePoint Recurring Events

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I must be a dummy, but can't figure this out.  I am setting up a recurring event such as shown below in SharePoint WSS 3.0: Delivery Date - 11/10/2010; Start Time - 2 PM; End Time - 3 PM; Recurrence - Make this a repeating event; Pattern - Monthly and "The second Wednesday of every 1 month"; Date Range - Start Date of 11/10/2010; and End after 10 Occurrences. In the calendar, the event shows up on 11/10/2010, and in the data sheet view it has an end 8/10/2011.  There are no entries being shown in the calendar for any month other than Aug 2010. I wanted it to show up every month in the calendar between Nov 2010 and Aug 2011 at 2 PM on the second Wednesday.  What am I doing wrong?

Filter recurring events in Sharepoint

I have seen many people with the same problem but with no solution.

I am trying to show only the Calender events for the next 7 days, but creating a custom field and setting it to the Start Time and then filtering it doesnt work for recurring events since the recurring events are really only stored as one record ...

Any help will be appreciated.

Export Sharepoint Calendar (with Recurring) to Excel

Hi Everyone, I have a user who manages several Sharepoint calendars who likes to export lists and calendars to excel.  Currently when there is a recursive item, it only gets sent out once.  I have set up a list view that shows recurring events, but when exported to excel, it goes back to only showing each instance once. I know that the concern is that it will generate infinite entries, but is there a way to export this to excel showing all of the recurring items?  I have tried many times and looked on the internet with no success.  So far I'm only using the included parts of sharepoint, so I haven't looked into 3rd party software or writing my own code. Any help is appreciated, Thanks! -Casey

Any way to filter group or limit the view with recurring events??

It seems that recurring events (in Events view) cause greatlimitations in the views available. For example filtering or groupingon the start date of events does not work.I tried to use a calculated column that makes a 'Start Date' of theStart Time in order to filter on it, but the result is that only thefirst date of a series of a recurring task is shown, which of courseis useless.It seems that the Calendar view is the only way to limit views in day/week/etc.Did anyone else come up with an acceptable way to group or filterrecurring events?  Specifically filtering these recurring events by Week and Month.

SharePoint 2007 Calendar - add an event to a recurring meeting workspace

Hello all,

I was wondering if someone can answer this problem I am having. 

Simple Question: Are you able to add an additional event into a recurring event which is linked to a meeting workspace?

Long version:

I create an event in a calendar with the recurrence of every monday for the month. (4 dates lets say)  We have a special meeting to add to the meeting workspace, so I add an additional event in the calendar and try to add this date (15th lets say) to that previous meeting workspace series.

My problem is that the ability to add the new date (15th) to the series doesn't show me any options to add to that previous meeting workspace, I can only create a new meeting workspace.

My colleague who has used SharePoint 2003 at another workplace is 100% sure she could do this, however I am at a loss where SharePoint 2007 allows this functionality.

In a new calendar, I tested this theory by creating 3 events with recurring dates and creating an associated meeting workspace with each of them.  Not once did I get the option to add the event to another meeting workspace.  I added an event with no recurrence with an associated meeting workspace, the very next event could add to that meeting workspace which is what I want except to a recurring meeting workspace.

From my analysis, any event that has a recurring series

Recurring "Every Fifth X" day in Sharepoint Calendar

Get Today's Events from A Calendar That Contains Multi-Day Events as Well as Recurring Events


I'm having trouble getting a list of today's events from a default calendar.

I've tried the following two CAML queries:

 <FieldRef Name=\"EventDate\" />
 <FieldRef Name=\"EndDate\" />
 <FieldRef Name=\"RecurrenceID\" />
 <Value Type=\"DateTime\"><Month /></Value>

Which resulted in the following Exception:

    One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields.0x81020014

The calendar list is a default calendar list ie. no additional fields and no changes to the Eve

Problem quering calendar list with recurring events


Hi guys,

I need to get all events from a list which are overlap with a range of time (StartDateTime - EndDateTime).

The problem is that recurring events has EventDate as the first day of recurence and EndDate 30 years later so absolutly all ranges of time get into any recurring period.

Is there a way to fix it?

Filter recurring Events


Has the capability to filter recurring events been added for sharepoint 2010? If so, does the Current Events view now work correctly for recurring events?

SPListItem "Start Time" for recurring events when building a task reminder Timer job.


I have a timer job that looks at maintenance events (calendar list) planned 5 days in the future and moves them to the current todo list. It then marks that maintenance item as copied so it is not double copied to the current todo list.

This works good for single event maintenance items but not for routine or recurring maintenance items. The reason is the recurring events have a "start time" of the first event so after the first one gets moved the rest are all interpreted as being in the past, since (I think) the recurring events start time is generated as an offset of the original event at runtime. How would I get a collection of ALL the Event items that are 5 days out (single and recurring) within a timer job.
