Calendar, forms and re-occurring events -- help

I am creating an org-wide calendar to capture all meetings and events across our networks. Users will enter event details via a form. Is there a way to capture re-occurring events and have them populate in calendar view without having to complete a new form entry for every occurrence of the event? I'm trying to minimize data-entry workload on our users.

    Hi @Roxy

    The simplest method would probably be to have an indicator and then to copy the row multiple times.

    I have an idea on how to automate it but haven't had time to explore more.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

    Thanks for your response. I did have that as an option, copying/paste--had not thought of having an indicator though. So I will explore. However, this still requires a manual process and I was looking for a more automated solution. Please do share with me f you ever get time to test your idea. Appreciate the feedback!
