New Event Web Part should support recurring events
The new event web part in SPO should support recurring events for Birthdays etc. We use it to keep track of birthdays in our office, but the new web-part does not support recurring events.
Thank you for the feedback! We are not planning on adding support recurring events at this time but we will keep it in mind in the future when we look at improving the overall event story on SharePoint.

Not having this feature is prohibiting me from moving off of on-prem teams to SP Online! We use recurrence for our out of office calendars, our on-call calendars, training meetings, etc. We use this every day on prem.
LPM, how on earth an event app doesn't support recurrence?!?!?!?!?!

without recurring Events thats only half-done
This should be standard realy SMH

This should be available out of the box. Why would you let users load events in a calendar as a series that are not displayed as Upcoming events in the Events web part in modern pages.

1000%! This is ABSURD that it doesn't support recurring events!

I 100% agree. I thought I had found a workaround. First create an event (birthday) in the modern look. Then change to classic look and update the event to a recurring event. After doing that with about 40-50 birthdays, I found out the hard way that those birthday disappeared again from the modern look.
MS, please add recurring events to modern look. A lot of our employees do not have an AD account so I can not use AD for showing birthdays. Our intranet is well read because of the birthdays they can find on our current 2007 SharePoint intranet.
