Horizontal repeating of events

It is possible to repeat, over time, the selection of one or more events.

It is also possible to repeat child events.

To do this, right click on a selection of events > Repeat > Horizontally.

The following window opens:

Every

Select the repetition period. This period may be in numerical quantities for:

  • Year,

  • Semester,

  • Quarter,

  • Month,

  • Week,

  • Day,

  • 1/2 Day,

  • 1/3 Day,

  • 1/4 Day,

  • Hour,

  • 1/2 hour,

  • 1/4 hour,

  • 10 minutes,

  • 5 minutes.

Worked

If checked the Worked box allows the period, defined above, to apply to working days only.

Same day

If checked, the Same Day box applies repetitions every month on the same day of the month.

Example: Each first Monday of the month

Repeat until

Define the end date for the repetition. In this case there is no need to detail the number of repetitions.

Number of repetitions

Define the number of repetitions. In this case there is no need to detail the end date for repetitions.

Parameters

Repeating group

It is possible to create a repeating group for newly created events.

This functionality allows the user to assign a “grouped” attribute to all events created within this repetition.

From this moment onwards, when editing an event belonging to such a group, a dialogue box asks the logged on user whether the edit should be applied to the selected event only or to all events in the group.

In the case that all events are to be edited, the edit fields for the dates and durations are deleted from the dialogue box. During validation, all modifications are then propagated to all events within the group.

Important

A modification to the duration of an event, by drag and drop methods, only modifies the selected event, even if it is part of a repeating group.

Warning

An event belonging to a repeating group cannot be cut, compressed, divided nor repeated.

Repeating a note, a formula, valuation items

It is also possible to choose several characteristics which cannot be repeated in newly created events.

These characteristics are:

  • The note,

  • the formula,

  • the valuation items.

Worked events

For the repetitions of at least one repeating event, you must define the behavior to be accepted by the horizontal repetition.

There are three possible cases when a worked event must be created during an unworked period:

  • Non-creation of a repeat event,

  • Creation of a repeat event during the closest possible future worked period,

  • Creation of a repeat event during the closest possible past worked period.
