More flexible event repeat options

The current repeat options (daily, weekly, every weekday) are a good start, but my organization has many events that repeat on a certain time of the month - every third wednesday, every 2nd and 4th thursday, etc. Being able to set a repeat that accomplishes that would save me a ton of effort in entering multiple identical events. Even just allowing a monthly repeat on a day would be a huge addition for my organization.

    We run weekly "office hours" (aka webinars) and need the repeat functionality before we can purchase.

    It will also be nice to set exceptions for weekly recurring events. For example, no lessons during school holidays, etc.

    @Helga - here's a solution to get some ideas off of what Elfsight's calendar could look like:

    I'll also add the need to end recurring events! We have a weekly event that will only run for a couple months.

    Also, in the repeat function, add 'exclude' dates, as for instance we have weekly events, but not during school holidays/half terms. This would be really appreciated.

    Please add this. As others have stated, being able to repeat at various intervals is important to event planning. Pretty much looking for all repeating options available in Google calendar.

    Cosigning the feature request to add a "repeat until" option for repeat events.

    Hi Helga! Great news that you guys are adding this feature, it'll make entering calendar entries so much easier for us. I'm glad to see this great widget get even better.

    If you guys could offer similiar functionality to the Microsoft Outlook "Appointment Recurrence" field, that should cover just about any recurrence I can think of.

    Or simply, a "repeat unitl" or "repeat through" date option. Almost the same, but not quite. Would be a huge time saver.

    Yes, I totally agree. I would love to see a 2 week and 4 week repeat option. This would save a lot of extra work.
