Office 365 (Apple iCal/Calendar) - Set Event Recurrence

Best Effort Support Only

This document contains instructions on using a non-Microsoft email client, such as Apple Mail or Thunderbird. Microsoft does not recommend these clients for use with Office 365, and there are often significant limitations in client functionality as a result.

Because of this, the DoIT Help Desk is only able to offer best effort support for these clients, and certain issues may require the use of a Microsoft client in order to be resolved. For more information on Office 365 client support, please see: Office 365 - Which clients/protocols will be supported?.

This document explains how to create a repeating meeting in Apple iCal (Mac OS 10.5-7) or Calendar (Mac OS 10.8-9) in Office 365.

Set Event Recurrence

iCal/Calendar provides a number of options to specify an event that recurs over some pattern. iCal/Calendar calls these options Repeat options. The options are: None, Every Day, Every Week, Every Month, Every Year with a Custom... option for more advanced settings. There is no option for repeating on some day per week, e.g., the 3rd Thursday of every month. You can set a time limit for when the repeat ends.
