Recurring events on custom dates

1. On the first day that the event will begin, add the event.

2. Complete all the event information.  

3. To make an event recurring, click on the drop down menu under "Repeats." Choose  "Custom (copy to multiple dates)"

4.  Mark all of the dates in a row where the event will occur.  These can be completely random, or follow a pattern

5. If you want different information in the details of each day, you will need to edit the event and change the details for each day.

Events spanning multiple dates

At this time, we do not have the ability to put a banner across several days. For now, here is a workaround: 

1. On the first day of the event, create the event.  

2. Following the steps in the instructions above, create a recurring event with custom dates. 

3. Click "Save event and edit dates it's copied to"


4.  Mark all of the dates in a row where the event will occur:

5. If you want different information in the details of each day, you will need to edit the event and change the details for each day. (For example, in our sample, we are setting up for the Fall festival. You may put details into each day about what needs to be accomplished or which teams are assigned for set up).
