moderated Re: Calendar missing "Last" function for repeating events

Mark,

 

I don’t think its possible to map this into the existing system, which is why we are asking. There are two options, set it to the fourth and then manually adjust those months where there are five of the days of interest, and then when saving choose “just this event”, or create a “fourth” and a “fifth” day of the month event and delete the fourths where there is a fifth.

Hi Michael,

Some events repeat on the last <weekday> of the month, e.g. "Monthly on the Last Saturday"
which will be either the 4th or 5th Saturday of a month
(because except for non-leap year Februaries, all months have 29, 30, or 31 days).

The Calendar: Repeats: Repeat Summary automatically chooses: Fourth or Fifth
depending on the particular month when the repeating event's start date is set,
unfortunately this design does not recognize that the event could be Last, rather than Fourth or Fifth.

I suggest the fix is to make it a manual choice of: First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, or Last

 

I understand this conceptually, but am having a difficult time mapping it to the existing system (perhaps lingering jet lag has something to do with it). Can you give me some examples using the existing system and what you'd add?

 

Thanks,

Mark
