How do I add a repeating event to a course calendar?

Open Calendar

Open Calendar

In Global Navigation, click the Calendar link.

 

Add Event

Add Event

Click any date on the calendar to add an event [1]. Or, click the arrows next to the month name to navigate to a different month [2] and select a date.

If you don't want to manually locate the date, you can click the Add icon [3].

View More Options

View More Options

Enter the details as you would when adding an individual event [1]. In the Calendar drop-down menu [2], select the course calendar for the event. Click the More Options button [3].

Duplicate Event

Duplicate Event

Click the Duplicate checkbox.

Note: If you cannot see the checkbox, you selected the wrong course calendar when creating the new event.

Add Duplicate Details

By default, events are set to repeat every week [1].

If you want to change the repeating event to daily or monthly, click the Week(s) drop-down menu and select your preferred time range. You may also have to change the number that precedes the time period.

By default, events are set to create one occurrence [2], meaning it will create the initial event plus one additional (two total events). If you want to change the number of additional occurrences, enter the number in the text field. The calendar event supports up to 200 additional occurrences.

If you want to automatically add a number to the end of each event title (such as Event 1, Event 2, etc.), click the Count checkbox [3].

Create Event

Remember, once created, duplicate events are not linked together and are independent events. Therefore, if you need to modify an event, each event has to be edited individually.
