Do the following to create a recurring appointment:

  1. Locate or create an appointment object in the dataSource.

  2. Specify the recurrenceRule property to configure the appointment frequency. Set this property according to the iCalendar RFC 2445 specification. A single data object with recurrenceRule creates an appointment series.

  3. Optionally, use the recurrenceException property to specify the start date and time of those appointments that you want to exclude from the series.

You can use custom fields that set recurrence. To enable them, specify their names in the Scheduler's recurrenceRuleExpr and recurrenceExceptionExpr properties.

Users can also create recurring appointments. The appointment details form contains a Repeat switch. When it is on, the form displays an additional set of fields to specify recurrence rules. Double-click an appointment and select Edit series to view the appointment details form with the recurrence fields. You can also select Edit appointment to view a single non-recurring appointment from the series.
