One person's repeating event is another person's ongoing event. If a multi-day event takes place over the course of several days, doesn't it repeat? Isn't it ongoing? These terms for describing event types are fuzzy at best and they can mean different things to different people. When it comes to creating events that work the way you expect them to, however, it doesn't matter what those event type terms mean to you personally. What does matter is for you to understand how Trumba defines repeating, multi-day, and ongoing. That's what you learn here. Repeating events Repeating events are events, such as classes, meetings, and lap swimming hours, that occur a limited number of times according to a repeating pattern. Note that repeating patterns don't have to be regular and predictable. For example, events can repeat on different days each week or not every day, week, or month. They can even start and end more than once on the same day. Learn more. Multi-day events Multi-day events are events, such as conferences and workshops, that take place over the course of a few days. A multi-day event can have one start and end time, the same start and end time each day, or different start and end times each day. Learn more. Ongoing events Ongoing events are events, such as art exhibits or final examination periods, that take place over a (sometimes extended) period of time. Typically, an ongoing event's start time isn't what matters. For example, an art exhibit takes place in a museum that has standard opening and closing times for different days of the week. During the final exam period, students have several exams at different times. What does matter is the time period during which you have the opportunity to attend.

1) I'm trying to figure out the best way to have multi-day events appear in my calendars. Typically, an event which lasts over a weekend or a week. (I always use either the List or Table views for my published calendars.) If, under Grouping, I select "Show Once," the event disappears from the published calendar once the first day of the event is passed, even though the event is still going on. (The listing continues to exist in my calendar.) If, under Grouping, I select "Show in All Relevant Groups," the event does show up in the published calendar on all the days it's happening. HOWEVER, it continues to show up on the whole range of dates, even after the first of those dates have passed by. (EXAMPLE: An event is scheduled for 10/4 through 10/8, and I have "Show in All Relevant Groups" selected. The listings for 10/4, 10/5 and 10/6 continue to be published on the calendar, even though today is 10/7.) This isn't really a huge deal; I just wonder if there is some way to get it to not publish the past dates, but delete them as time passes. The goal would be to have no past dates showing up on the published calendar. 2) The other issue is with a month-long "event." What I'm after is posting an "event" that is actually a notice that "no meeting will be held in December." I would want this to continue to show up on the published calendar all month, but would rather not clog up the calendar with a repeating event for 31 days. What I'm after is a single notice, with a date range, that remains up as one "event" through the ending date. Thanks much. LOVE your calendars. Really
