    how do you change just one event, not the whole series? i did not see any option, as in other programs we have used before breeze.

    This option used to be there. I just noticed its gone or not working as well.

    I'd love to see a feature when creating recurring events that included a custom setting, for example instead of creating 3 different weekly events, it would be nice to just select Weekly with the recurrance on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

    I also really need a way to change a single occurrence of  a recurring event. When a recurring meeting gets rescheduled due to conflicts, we need to change just one event without blowing up a few years worth of scheduled meetings. This becomes even more important with the Breeze calendar posted on our church Website

    Hey all - apologies for the delayed response - we had a bug that was preventing us from seeing comments on certain articles! 

    If you "edit event settings" for one event in a series it will just affect that single event, not each one.  You would have to click the "schedule change" to the whole series. 

    So if you need to change the time/date for just one event, clicking "edit event settings" then making the changes directly from that page and clicking 'save' will affect just that one event!

    When you move an event to a new day (the occurrence now to run for example on Mondays when it used to run on Thursdays) would your advice starting a new event to prevent the previous instances of that event being moved on the calendar and keep history intact?

     

    I have started to take this approach. Editing the event and adding an end date to the occurrence, so the old schedule stops on a specific date and then adding a new one starting on the new date and day and occurring every 1 or 2 weeks.

     

    I know you can move individuals dates by dragging on the calendar, but I don't think I can change the day for all in the future and leave al in the past on the original day, right?

    Justin--If you select the event that needs to change, for example if you have an event that is weekly on a Monday that changes to Thursday, just select the last Monday date and click on the recurrence settings.  It will pop up with a warning that any settings(eg volunteer assignments) for the future will change.  From there, you can change the settings to the new recurrence and still preserve the history of the event.

    Is it possible to schedule an event on the same day of the month for a whole month, every other month?

    Yes!

    How to schedule an event once per month on a specific day of the week

    If you have an event that occurs once per month on a specific day of the week, here's how you'll set that up: 

    1. Add Event
    2. Add in event details
    3. Click "event repeats"
    4. Choose Repeats "Monthly"
    5. Choose the second option for Day of the "Week"

    We have youth group on Sunday nights, so I have a recurring weekly event scheduled.  Some Sunday nights we don't have youth group for various reasons: weather, christmas, superbowl etc. 

     

    I want to delete the individual event from the event series without deleting the whole series so that the one event doesn't impact the series statistics.  Does that make sense?  I don't know how to do that.  :)

    I believe what you need to do is go to the event you want to delete and click delete. Then three options will come up asking if you want to delete this event only, the entire series, or all future events. You would choose THIS EVENT.

    HI @joncole!

    Great question! It makes perfect sense and @pastorsott is right on track!

    Here is a most helpful resource that will allow you to delete that "one"event: Deleting an Event

    Happy Breezing!

    I'm trying to Set up a recurring meeting on the Last Saturday of the Month. Unfortunately, the month I started with (March 2019) only has 5 Saturday's. So, it only put that event in the month where the 5th Saturday is the last Saturday, so month's with no 5th Saturday has no event on the calendar?  (UPDATE)  Actually, the event occurs randomly on Saturdays on my calendar.   So, the short question is, how do I schedule a recurring event on the "last" Saturday of each month?

    What I want to do is create an event for the last Saturday of the Month.  The above does not work for this scenario.  Probably because some months have 4 Saturdays and some have 5.  And, if you start with the month that has 5 Saturdays, this recurring events only show up in the months with 5 Saturdays.  Then if you set up another recurring in the next month with 4 Saturdays, then the event shows up on the 4th and 5th Saturdays in the months with 5 Saturdays.  Ugh!

    Hey @info!

    So sorry for the frustration! Happy to clarify and provide a solution! We are here to spread the ease of Breeze. Our support team is able to merge events essentially making it one event for this very scenario. There are a few steps in involved and we can only merge events that belong together in a series (same settings, name, time, etc.) but we are happy to help! 

    The one con is that historical volunteer roles will be lost, however, you'd be able to track attendance across the events.  If this is something that would be most helpful, please reach out to support via email with the event details so that we can walk you through how to set this up. Once the event details are set up properly, we can merge the event that occurs on the last Saturday of the month. 

    We’re here and happy to serve from 9am - 6pm (Eastern), Monday - Friday, either by phone (888.320.6030) or by email.

    Blessings!

    When setting up a recurring event, is there a way to open the "Event Series" after it is created for edits?  For example, I have a recurring event that ended in April, but would like to extend it through May.  When I open the event, it only opens the event for that day.  When I open the repeat option, it is marked as "No end date", yet it stops in April.   Can I extend/set the end date?   Thanks!
