Add repeating events

You can add events to your Trumba® calendars that recur on a daily, weekly, monthly, or annual basis. Repeating events don't have to occur every day or every week. For example, you can set up an event that repeats every 7th week on Thursday. Or, you can set up an event that occurs every 5th day.

Once a repeating event is set up, you can change the event description, location, start time, duration, end date, notes, and Web link. You can apply the changes to just one event in the repeating series or to all future events in the series.

Note You can't change the recurrence pattern for a repeating event after you set it up. If you want to change the pattern, delete all occurrences of the original event and create a new repeating event.

If a repeating event is canceled or you no longer want to attend, you can delete the entire series just one specific instance, or all instances from a specific date forward.

Set up a repeating event

You add a repeating event the same way you add any other event to a calendar but, in addition, you set up a recurrence pattern.

  1. Click Add Event above a calendar.
  2. In the Event Information form, type a description and location for the event.
  3. If necessary, for Start, choose the date on which the first event in the series occurs.
  4. For Repeat, choose Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Annually, and then choose the rest of the pattern.

    Tip To set up a quarterly event, for Repeat, choose Monthly. Choose the day of the month on which the event occurs, and then, for every, choose 3rd month.

    I need help setting up a different sort of special repeating-event case.

  5. Choose the date on which you want the repeating event to end. Or, select the No End Date check box.

    Note Even when you select No End Date, there are limits to how far into the future recurring events can last. Daily or weekly events have a 2 year limit. Monthly events have a 20 year limit. Annual events have a 200 year limit.

  6. Choose other settings for the event, such as how you want the time to display.
  7. Select the calendars you want the event to show up on, and then click OK.

Update a repeating event

When you update a repeating event, you can apply the changes to only one specific event in the series or to a specific event and all events that follow. For example, for a weekly event that starts on May 2 and ends on May 30, you can change just the event for May 16. Or, you can change the event for May 16 and all subsequent events, in this case, May 23 and May 30.

Tip You can't edit the recurrence pattern for an event. To change the pattern, delete the series and create a new repeating event.

To update a repeating event

  1. Click either:
    • The title of the specific event in the series that you want to change, or;
    • The event in the series where the changes start.
  2. In the Event Information form, make the changes you want.

    For example, if you want to change the date of just one event in the series, open that event. For Start, choose the new date.

  3. On the yellow bar at the bottom of the form, indicate whether you want to apply the changes only to the specific event you are editing or to all future events in the series.

  4. Tip If you have set up a recurring event and you want to delete all the events from a specific date forward, open any instance that occurs before the date that you want the event to end. Change the end date to the date that you want the event to end, and then, for Change, click This and future events in the repeating pattern.

  5. Click OK.

Delete a repeating event

You can delete one instance in a repeating series, the entire series, or all instances from a specific date forward.

To delete one instance or the entire series

  1. If you are deleting:
    • A specific event, click the title of that event.
    • The entire series, click the title of any event in the series.
  2. At the bottom of the Event Information form:
    • Click Delete This Event to delete one specific event.
    • Click Delete the Entire Repeating Series to delete the series.
  3. Click OK.

To delete all instances from a specific date forward

  1. Click the title of any event in the series.
  2. Under Repeats, set the end date for the event to the specific date you want the series to end.
  3. For Change, click This and future events in the repeating series, and then click OK.
