Event Calendar Pro - Additional recurrence option

Hi Joe, we'd find it very handy to be able to schedule recurring events in ECP by number of days. For example, if a facility is closed every other Friday, we'd like to be able to set a recurrence to every 14 days.

Thanks!

Re: Event Calendar Pro - Additional recurrence option

Hi Jamie,

I am looking into more recurrence flexibility for the next round of improvements to Event Calendar Pro. Recurrence support was one of the trickier things to implement. I'll see what I can come up with and have made notes about your suggestion.

Best,

Joe

Re: Event Calendar Pro - Additional recurrence option

Great, thank you Joe. We actually went through this exercise for a ticket recurrence scheduler in our custom built help desk application. What we ended up with gives us almost infinite flexibility, but is perhaps a bit complicated. In case it helps you, here is how ours works:

Months grid with checkboxes for JAN - DEC

Days of the week grid (1) with checkboxes for SUN - SAT

Days of the week grid (2) with checkboxes for "DAY 1st", "DAY 2nd", "DAY 3rd", "DAY 4th", "DAY 5th", "DAY Last" (Day is SUN - SAT, for 42 total rows)

Days of the month grid with checkboxes for 1-31 plus "L" for Last day of the month

Specific dates grid, with date field and insertable rows

Field for "Repeat every X days"

Each of the grids/fields is dynamically shown or hidden based on the "Recurrence Method Dropdown":

  • Days of the Month [Shows Months, Days of Week (1), Days of Month grids]
  • Days of the Week [Shows Months, Days of Week (2) grids]
  • Periodic [Shows Months, Repeat every X days grids]
  • Specific Dates [Shows specific dates grid]

If you're interested in any screen shots of this, just let me know and I'll shoot you an email.

Hi Jamie,

Yes, if you have screen shots that clarify your improvement ideas I would be delighted to see them.

You can send them to joe dot audette at that g mail place.

Best,

Joe

Joe

We would also like to see this implemented (recurrence/cloning of events) if possible

Thanks

Al
