  • How do I schedule one event which recurs each weekday for multiple weeks? I seem to be able to only repeat daily for one week at a time by setting the number of occurrences to five. This makes running reports for the entire season not "a Breeze". I want to see one report that shows the attendee totals and grand totals for the one event over and be able to filter by the days, weeks or month that it occurs. I seem to have to create a separate event for each week. Help!!!

  • Is there a way to pause a reoccurring event? 

    We have a bible study scheduled for the whole year but they decided to take a break for the summer.  Instead of deleting each individual event through the summer is there a way to "pause" the event so it doesn't show up on the weeks they aren't meeting without having to delete and have it start again on the date they are starting?

  • Hey @eatonfamily4ks 

    There currently is not an option to "Pause" an event. However, as you suggested you can delete the single events that they will not be meeting for out of the event series. This will allow the event to be available on the date they start back up without having to reconstruct the whole event. 

    To Delete an Event :  

    1. Select the "Events" tab from the top right.
    2. Click the event you'd like to delete.
    3. Click "edit event settings" in the lower left corner.
    4. Click "Delete Event" from the bottom right.

    Choose the Delete Event option from the 3 options listed which will delete only the event you are on and keep others in the series. You would need to do this for the several weeks they are not meeting.

    I hope this helps!

  • Is there a way to schedule a recurring event for weekdays only? We have events that occur every day during the school year but only during the week. It is frustrating to have to schedule them one week at a time. Am I missing something?

  • Hey @jrepace!

    Thanks for reaching out. I am so sorry you are frustrated, I'd be frustrated too. Happy to answer your question: "Is there a way to schedule a recurring event for weekdays only?"  Yes. My Test Event below in the screenshot is set for M-F weekdays only.

    Please forgive me but I may need a bit more clarity if this does not resolve your issue. Let's see if this will help:

    How to schedule a weekly event

    1. Add Event
    2. Add in event details

    4. Choose repeats "weekly"

    Blessings and Happy Breezing!

    Was there an answer to Matt's question above. I'm having a similar problem.

    Thanks for reaching out to the breeze community! Although we know this is not the best scenario, there is a workaround for this. You would simply want to schedule a daily event that repeats with no ending. Then you would go in and Delete the Weekend events by removing the individual events that fell on a weekend. See Below:

    We do realize that this would be a daunting task especially if you had large gaps throughout the year. However, if you knew the exact schedule that you would need to maintain for the year…We would be more than happy to help go and make the schedule match by helping you Delete the Events. It's a pretty quick process for us on our side! 

    Please let us know if this would be suitable for you. If so, I would suggest contact our Support to get started!
