Show recurring events in the new Event Web Part
I have the new look Sharepoint online and I notice when creating events in the Events Web App, you don't have the option to configure as a recurring event.
If you create the event and then go site contents > events and manually drill into the event and setup recurring, the event no longer shows up in the Events Web Part.
I think being able to setup recurring events is basic functionality for any calendar so can we get the feature added/fixed?
Thanks for asking for this capability. This isn’t in our current plans. We suggest using the Group Calendar functionality for great Microsoft Exchange backed features like recurring events.
Please make it a prio after all those years .... I wasted my time on this issue, if certain options dont work (anymore), leave them out. This is just as ridiculous as giving the advice to use a group calendar and if it is such a "Great MS Exchanged backed feature" you should never have left it out in the first place.
This is so frustrating. I've managed to add recurring events by creating the event, then going into Events in the Site Contents then making them recurring.
Works ok, except the dates that show in the web part are confusing - the date you created it and some mystery dates (not the end date as I didn't set one.)
It also shows events from two weeks previous, not two weeks ahead. So helpful!
Come on. Fix this one. It is needed by so many. Don't tell me to create an outlook group. I need the web part to work.
Recurring events is a common and necessary calendar function. My team needs to be able to do this and have it sync with our home communication site page. Adding this feature should be a priority.
I was looking for this today as I have a monthly event I need to publish on our team website. I can't even copy an existing event so I have to type the same info over and over.... would appreciate something to allow us to either copy events or create a recurring one.

Completely ridiculous that it is not available. C'mon, microsoft...

I cannot believe this feature does not work. This is an embarrassing oversight for basic calendar functionality.
'Recurring Events' is must have feature...!!
I agree this functionality, should be there if you can add events then being able to make them recur is a must. Also, it seems that only 30 min intervals rather than precise times are available.
Group Calendar DOES NOT suit our requirements. Reoccurring appointments are used daily by most organisations. Not having this feature as part of SharePoint is like building a car without wheels. It may look good and fancy, but it doesn't get you anywhere.
Since this idea is already a few years old, this is a cop-out response. Why not have the recurring events grayed out if it doesn't work or a warning in red seeing how long it has taken to NOT add this. I am being tasked with getting a company to trust Microsoft and the new SharePoint platform when I have to tell them why such an "must-have" feature doesn't work but looks as if it should.
I would also like this feature

I had 2 customer who are using SharePoint Online, they had the same requirement.
they desire this feature
this feature must be
Your suggestions to use Group Calendar still has limitations.
you can not create multiple calendar per group. and it is not user friendly to create group for every Calendar (Holidays, Times Off,...).
I guess a Name Like Microsoft should have more centralized solution. one calendar App with all features needed and can be at leased used across O365 products.
Adding to RoxAnn, the feature is there! you can add the recurring event but its just not showing on the calendar!
If you edit the calendar under site contents using the Event Calendar it allows you to add recurring events and actually displays in the calendar. However, when you add it as a webpart it does not show up. That doesn't make sense at all and I hope it gets fixed soon. Thank you.

Recurring events is a desparately needed feature!!
It's amazing how people can keep their jobs after making decisions like this.

How is this not on your road map? Asking users to use a different calendar for basic requirement is scurrilous.
This functionality MUST BE.
So the only way to access SPO recurring event dates (other than the very first+last dates) is STILL only supported by using SOAP?? The great Modern UI was released without adding client-side support for recurring events by using REST/Graph and it's not even on the roadmap??
This was an enormously glaring issue with the Classic interface, and evidently Microsoft likes it like that. Working as intended.
I thought this was the result of yet another half-finished MS release, but I was wrong. This was designed to just be another unused MS feature in a business setting.
