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.

    Hi Jen,

    Thanks for your comment!

    Our devs have access to this space and all the threads, and I do believe they will consider adding a yearly repeat option as well :)

    Thanks a lot for helping us by sharing your ideas!

    Is it possible to put in an event that repeats every year?

    Dear Ingrid,

    Thank you ever so much for such a warm comment and kind words!

    I wish we could cover the feature requests much faster, however, everything depends on our devs' overall load. But we take every effort to release the most wanted options :)

    Thank you so much for your understanding!

    wow! I seriously can’t believe it! I am so thankful! I love elfsight but we have so many events that repeat “from this date UNTIL this date” and it takes forever to add every date manually. We are just getting ready to do next year’s calendar and we were thinking about trying a new platform but elfsight has so many advantages I was hoping we could stick with it. Just knowing this might in the works is so helpful! I can pass this on! Thank you for listening!!

    Hello folks,

    Thank you so much for your comments and suggestions!

    I totally understand your point and I'm really sorry that we haven't improved the Repeat option yet.

    I've let our dev team know that this request is highly popular and I do believe they will be able to make the Repeat option more powerful and useful.

    Thanks a lot for your patience!

    Yes, please allow more options with recurring events but especially allow them to display past 30 days. Right now I have an event that repeats weekdays but it won't show on the calendar past 30 days. I need our clients to see that when viewing future months down the road.

    I would like to see an end date for any repeat events. For example I want to add an event for 3 months only.

    Maybe even the option to repeat on the 1st (or any other day) of the month.

    I would wholeheartedly agree - we need a calendar tha does monthly as well as the current options - also if they could expire after the date has passed that would be amazing

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

    Hi Jenna,

    Thanks a lot for supporting this idea, we'll try to consider this option and add it to the widget.

    Thank you for your help!

    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.

  • Diana Kilby commented

    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.

    this feature is a possible game changer in choosing which calendar we will use for our events please add

    Hello there,

    Thank you very much for your additional comments!

    We do appreciate your every idea and we try hard to include them in the updates. We also hope to see new features in the widget soon as we totally understand how they could increase the widget's value.

    Thanks a lot for your understanding and support!
