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.

So, you (MS) stated back in May 2019 that this feature was not in your plans. You now have 68 comments and 323 votes. Is that sufficient feedback to get this added to SharePoint Online? I just did an online search for this topic and there are posts across the internet about this dating back to 2016. I think it's time to listen to what your customers are asking for and not what I can only assume is a MS Teams group request.
I need this feature so much that I actually looked into creating a custom team site just for the purposed of having a group calendar that will display recurring events in the events web part of a portal (which, I'd like to highlight, is both and unproductive use of my time and a poor experience from one of your company's flagship productivity products). Turns out that the Group Calendar is actually a third-party app by a company that doesn't even proofread its description. Kind of lowers my confidence when Microsoft is telling me that I should use a third-party, second-rate Teams app just to get basic functionality from a SharePoint calendar web part.
C'mon guys, seriously.... fix this (and yes, I am intentionally using "fix" instead of "feature"--having a calendar web part display events correctly is a basic requirement--otherwise it defeats the purpose of creating a calendar web parts in the first place).Dawson supported this idea ·
