    Hi there,

    I just wanted to put in my 2 cents on the Events module features. 
    - Ability to create a recurring event
    - Ability to manage a shared calendar of events.  Add a category to the items and allow the contents of the shared calendar to be filtered based on selected categories.
    - Ability to set the default display for the calendar to be the Month view.


    I'm still learning about this feature so some of these may already be there and I just haven't discovered it yet.

    Thanks!
    Justin

    Hello Justin,

    Please find the answers to your questions:

    1. We are already working on the ability to add recurring events and most probably this feature would be included in the next official release.
    2. You are already able to sort displayed items by category, so that you can set one category appearing in a particular Event View control. For more information about how this can be achieved please check the following KB article: Filtering content by categories in controls based on Content View
    3. We have this already logged as a feature request and will consider adding it for one of the future releases.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,

    What is the status of this feature?  Do we have the ability to set recurring events?

    Hello andy,

    You could take a look at Implementing scheduled services in Sitefinity 3.x that shows how to create recurring events.

    Hi,

    I was just looking for the same thing. So, to make a recurring event (like Sunday 10:00 AM Church Service), we have to make a web service, then a console application, then a scheduled windows task? Once that is done, I'm not seeing (according to your previous post) on how to actually create the calendar event and have it show up in the system?

    Hello David Arnold,


    Once the web service is called from the console application you can publish the item or implement another metakeys that will be used for defining when this item should appear/how/why etc.  This  will make the item visible by a control that is used to show your items - say EventsView.

    You can pass DateTime parameters to StartIndex methods. These parameters will be set through backend UI of Sitefinity, so you will know the exact dates of recursion and you will be able to create a control and populate it with this dat. Another option is working with global.asax and Application_Start, but you have to ping your website each minute otherwise your application pool could go to sleep and the event execution will be postponed. In this case you do not need console application and using Windows Scheduler.

    David,

    Last week we made available the Recurring Events components (versions supported: 3.7, 3.6). A live evaluation website is available as well.

    If you still need the ability to create and maintain recurring events, please go to the Recurring Events Evaluation website to read about our implementation, and assess the new functionality.

    Basically to create a recurring event such as the one you mentioned (Sunday 10:00 AM Church Service) becomes a 10 seconds exercise, all through the "Recurrence" section integrated with the Event Edit View, no programming and ongoing maintenance required.

    I hope this helps --
