Custom Recurring Dates
When setting up custom recurring events, it would be great to be able to select from a predefined list of dates. For example, we are a school that runs on a six day letter rotation. If I want to add an event that occurs on every D day, I have to select each date for that recurring event. For other organizations, maybe you have a special schedule of Sunday events for the year that events need to be scheduled for, The ability to pre-populate those recurring schedules and select them when scheduling events would save a lot of time.
This sounds like creating a calendar (not event specific, just a list of dates) that can be used over and over for any event. In our HVAC program, I create calendars for events, select the calendar from a drop down (instead of daily/weekly recurrence) for the unit(s) I want to run on those dates, and I don’t have to re-select the dates for additional units…and when the dates change, I can update the calendar and all the units assigned that calendar are updated. Hopefully that makes sense…
Eric, you can already schedule events to recur weekly every M-F (your example)
Choose weekly recurrence and you can select the days by clicking 'Customize' under "Recurrence Rules".

We are are a church and school on the same campus. During the week all classrooms are reserved for the school, but we also have to select every day from the custom option. It would be nice to just be able to choose that the event occurs every Mon.-Fri.

This would be very helpful and time saving.

This would be so helpful to have this for our school and save us a lot of time.
