I am looking for a way to display a calendar in list format that will shows events that are set to recur. These are annual dates-to-remember. How can I customize the spud to only list events set to recur annually?

Most calendars have several ongoing/recurring events and sometimes it makes sense to have two calendars, one for one-time events and the other for ongoing/recurring events. This way you can publish both calendars or publish each calendar on separate pages.

By doing this you can then create promotion spuds to display just the ongoing events.

Another idea for you if you do not want to set up another calendar is to set up a custom field, for example "Type of Event" and you could create a value called "Ongoing Event" and another value for "One time event". When you are adding events to your calendar you will then tag the event to be an "Ongoing"  or "One time event". By tagging these events with a value, you can then set up a Filter Control Spud to allows a visitor to display ongoing events on the calendar in addition to the one time events.

 

Here is a help topic with more details.

 

You can take this one step further and in addition to the steps above, you can set up a Filter View so when a person views the calendar you can hide the Ongoing events and only display the one-time events.
