SharePoint calendar sync to outlook recurring events issue

    Question

  • We utilize “ACalendar” for our team calendar.

     

    If a person creates a reoccurring meeting in outlook and invites ACalendar, ACalendar is updated with all the correct data except for the ‘end date’ of the reoccurrence.  No end date is populated- thus the item goes on forever.

  • Hi  Rgaruda,

     

    Try to synchronize SharePoint calendar into Outlook, then create a new item in SharePoint calendar with Outlook, make it recurring. Make sure you select end date when you configure recurrence. Then open SharePoint site, check whether the calendar has end date.

     

    For more information about view and update a SharePoint calendar, please refer to the following article:

  • Hi Rock

    I tried to modify a recurring event created in the sharepoint calendar in outlook and have to say that unfortunately it didn't work for me.

    the calendar event in outlook http://twitpic.com/3ci0id

    the calendar event in sharepoint http://twitpic.com/3chz03

    Is there a fix for this ?

    however when I did the following (as suggested by you)

    1) create calendar in sharepoint

    2) connect to outlook

    3) create recurring event in Outlook

    this worked! http://www.twitpic.com/3ci5he

    However I can tell the users are not going to like it :-)

    thanks and regards,

    Colm
