Outlook meeting invite using 'end by' date transfers to SharePoint calendar with end date 2028 . RRS feed

  • Question

  • When scheduling a meeting in Outlook (2007) and sending the invite to the SharePoint calendar (MOSS 2007) , if you used the recurring meeting invite with an end date SharePoint will not use the correct end date, it schedules the meeting until the year 2028.  Example, if I schedule a meeting for every Monday from July to Dec of 2009 and send to SharePoint, SharePoint's calendar will add the meeting from July 2009 thru Dec 2028.  If you use the 'end after xx occurenes' SharePoint schedules it appropriately.  Is there a fix for this?

  • Hello,


    Based on my experience, this is a known issue that End By parameter doesn’t work for recurring appointments synchronized between SharePoint and Exchange. Currently, there is no fix for this issue.


    As a workaround, could you use “End after … occurrences” instead of “End by …” to limit the recurring appointments?
