Multi-Day Events / Month-Long Event

Recommended Posts

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

As you've discovered, it is sometimes a tricky puzzle to coordinate the paging, grouping, and template to get what you want. I *think* I can give you an alternative for your first issue at least. From the behavior your describing, it almost sounds like you have the paging set to Current Group and grouping set to something other than Day? What if you have the paging set differently? (Keep the Show in all relevant groups box checked.) I believe that in the list-based templates, the next event should be at the top in most cases (setting paging to Current Group and grouping to, say, Month, is the only way I've been able to override that default behavior). But let me know if you just can't get it to work that way and other settings you've tried.

About #2, instead of creating an all-day repeating event that repeats daily for 31 days, what if you created a single-occurring event and set the duration to 31 days?
