I would like to be able to add recurring events and to duplicate events in the event calendar module!
We aren’t currently working on adding recurring events support to the Events web part. As a number of commentors have suggested, Group calendars do a great job with recurring events and are a great way to show them on your modern pages.
I understand that group calendars might be a good option for reoccurring events, but what about if you just have an event that runs multiple times (but irregularly, so not reoccurring)? At the moment we have to copy and paste all of that info into a new event - could there not be a duplicate option?

It's been a year since Admin answered this question.... maybe after a year, having recurring meetings in SharePoint sites is part of MS plans?
Group calendar does not work for us. We need the recurring events feature. Hope you will be responsive to those of us that use your products. There are many other alternatives, but we are trying to stick with you.

This is pretty unacceptable...
Group calendars aren't the solution we need at this time. Please reconsider adding occurring schedules to this web part.
It's difficult to explain to our clients during training "Hey there's a cool web part that comes with SharePoint Communication Sites.... but Microsoft doesn't want to add reoccurring events so you'll have to enter your dates one-at-a-time". It's not a great look.

Amazing that this hasn't been implemented yet. I am going to suggest to our company that we look for a different calendaring solution.
This is one of the reasons Office365 just doesn't meet expectations. If Mwants to support, than they shoudl just fix this. 'Admin' might think group calendar does it all ... but look and feel is more important than technical options. Customer = king right?
This really need to be implemented. I have a few different event lists that we use for company events, client events, and team tasks which require recurring entries that our team can add to their calendars as a reminder to complete tasks by a certain date. Forcing me to use a Group calendar just so I can get recurring events isn't ideal because the display format between events and group calendar is completely different when it's displayed on the page. Please fix!
I just discovered this. We really need this functionality as we use it to track regular days off that happen every 2-3 weeks for staff. Our staff is tracking these on SharePoint Calendars as they do not have an Office 365 Group yet.
Stating a solution as 'use a group' calendar is rubbish.
The group calendar fills the entire page with events, whereas you can see pretty compact cards for the Events calendar saving on real-estate..
What about Communications Sites that do not support being connected to Office 365 groups? Office 365 groups are a requirement to make that Group Calendar web part actually work...
I would love to "Communicate" reoccuring company "Events" to our end-users through the Intranet page we have setup, but cannot do so because this basic functionality is missing.
How do group calendars work on an intranet where you want to inform, but don't want events to go into the group's calendar?
This is causing a big issue on our intranet. I have to manually create two weekly events.

Important feature that is missing. Group calendars are not fit to situations where you want a calendar that is shared by the whole company.

I was hoping to move our intranet site to a modern page but this 'bug' is stopping us doing so!

Wow.... If Microsoft really wants sharepoint to be the portal of the modern digital workplace, then basic functionality such as this should be there... using a group for for global and company wide events communication will just litter the users with notifications and stuff that are perhaps more on the side of 'nice to know', than 'need to know'... I mean, what is the point of the coummunication/Hub/home site if you canät use it to communicate to broad groups, which only common denominator might be that they exisit within the same organization?

Microsoft, please add this to your plans and do actually work on this.
Martin Novy commented
haha that was great troll MS. Now, make it happen.
Jeff Novick commented
see all other comments. totally unacceptable response from the product team. the rolling up of events on subsite to central calendars is a great feature, but becomes almost useless if we cant use recurring events
L White VA commented
I agree with everyone that the Sites Product Teams' response is unacceptable. We use a corporate calendar on our Intranet home page. It includes multiple recurring events.
I will be looking for a non-Microsoft calendar app/web part that supports this functionality.
