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.

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.

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.
This is a very important functionality to exclude. Group calendaring is really not a good solution for this use-case, and I am curious what the suggestion is for Communication sites, which do not have the Group Calendar option?
Thank you for the update. This functionality is essential for the modern events web part and needs to be reconsidered in your plans. This is a need for every SP user in our organization. Group calendars are not an acceptable work around for our needs.

There is no group calendar functionality in communication sites... come on.
It's ridiculous that such basic functionality isn't in the plans. We have Communications Sites, which do not have O365 Groups attached needing this functionality. Also, each Group connected site will only have 1 Group calendar. This is limiting for some of our sites with multiple calendars. I don't understand how functionality that has always existed in SharePoint is considered something that isn't in the current plans.
